Our Purpose

The Alliance is established to advance the kingdom of God through the apostolic and leadership gifts and anointing. It provides an apostolic platform for ministry to leaders in the Body of Christ for the purpose of building up the church per Ephesians 4:9-14. This apostolic platform is the position from which Deborah and Harvey Wittmier minister apostolically to leaders, connect gifts between leaders, extend the message of grace and faith in Jesus Christ to the world, and advance God’s kingdom rather than man’s kingdom. Alliance partnership, by its very nature, will bring an aspect of apostolic purpose and anointing to ministries that participate.

Background


The Alliance was founded in 2010 in response to the words of the Holy Spirit. However, the concept was birthed in 2002 when Crossfire Church (the local outreach of Deborah Ministries International) was established, with the vision of many outlets of Good News going forth to bring grace and peace to the nations.


In late 2009 several prophetic words for Deborah and Harvey brought forth this original vision in new form. Harvey and Deborah had confirming words from people who knew little or nothing about Deborah Ministries International (DMI) or Crossfire Church. Those words confirmed the mandate to launch an apostolic initiative advancing the kingdom of God and bringing apostolic and prophetic gifting to leaders of ministries and churches in many nations. The timing of this initiative was unclear until New Years Eve, 2009 when the Holy Spirit declared through prophetic words it was time to move forward and God had, in fact, already started it.


Through prayer and prophecy the name and the mission have been clarified. We are to be an alliance. This is more than simply a fellowship of ministries or a network of relationships, but an alliance of many to bring forth ‘kingdom thinking’ to the church. Through prayer there came a strong sense of grace, yet the edge of being fierce in advancing the kingdom of Jesus Christ on earth. Since much of current day ministry growth is based on building individual kingdoms, it became clear that the Alliance is to advance God’s kingdom only. While we will build individual leaders in ministry, we do so for His kingdom purposes.

Guiding Principles

As leaders and partners in the Alliance we have principles which serve as guidance in making leadership decisions in our respective ministries. These principles parallel, but do not substitute for, sound doctrine based in Biblical truth. These principles serve as guideposts when faced with temptations to do it ‘man’s way’, when tempted to follow models of others as a pathway to our ministry ‘success’, when tempted to get our personal sense of value and ministry sense of accomplishment from anything other than Jesus Christ, His call in our lives, and His completed work on the cross.

Statement of Doctrine and Beliefs

Pastors in a leadership conference in Tanzania absorb the Word.

1. The Bible (which is the Scripture in both the Old and New Testaments) is the inspired Word of God and without error in the original manuscripts. It is God’s revelation to man of His perfect will for our lives and the final authority for all Christians. (1 Thes. 2:13; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:19-21)


2. God is one God, infinitely perfect and eternally represented in three distinct persons consisting of the Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; 1 Cor. 8:6)


3.  In Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He is the Messiah and the revelation of God’s love for the World. Jesus died on the cross and suffered the wrath of God in our stead, to atone for the sins of the world. He was resurrected from the dead and ascended into Heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest, interceding for the saints. (Matt. 1:18-25; Lu. 1:35; Jn. 1:1,14; 3:16; Lu. 24:51; Ro. 5:9; 8:34; Heb. 4:14,15)


4. In the person of the Holy Spirit, whose ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts men, regenerates believers, indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the believers for godly living and service, producing fruit in the lives of believers and giving spiritual gifts as He determines. (Jn. 7:38-39; 14:16-17, 26; 16:7-11; Ro. 8:11, 1 Cor. 2:12; 12:4-11; Gal. 5:22-25)


5. Man was originally created sinless in the image of God. When our first father and mother Adam and Eve sinned, it opened the human race up to sin and death, so that each person is now born with a sinful nature. Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit (through Jesus’ finished work at Calvary) can eternal life and salvation from sin be obtained. (Gen. 1:26-27; 3:1-24; Ro. 5:12-21)

                                   

6. We are saved from perishing in our sin by faith in Jesus Christ and His complete work accomplished on the cross (his shed blood) and through His resurrection. We receive salvation by grace through faith and are born of the Spirit (born again), becoming children of God who will have eternal life in the presence of God. (Is. 53; Jn. 1:12-13; 5:24; Ro. 5:8-9; 1 Cor. 3-4; Heb. 9:22)


7. Believers in Jesus are righteous and have direct relationship with God the Father because of our faith in Christ. (Jn. 10:30; 14:6; Ro. 8:10; 2 Cor. 5:21; Philip. 5:7-9; Heb. 4:16)


8. We are baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues when we prayerfully ask and are willing to receive the baptism. (Acts 1:5,8; 2:4; 10:45,46; 19:6)


9. The Church is made up of all those people who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, by grace, have been born again (regenerated by the Holy Spirit) and are united together as the Body of Christ-- regardless of sect, denomination, or organization. Christ is the head of the Church. (Matt. 16:16-18; 1 Cor. 12:12-14; Col 1:18,24; Ro. 12:4,5)


10. We have been given a Great Commission by the Lord Jesus to bring the Gospel to all people by our testimony, lifestyle, and ministry. (Matt. 5:16; Mk 16:15-18; Lk 24:47)


11. Both men and women are called into leadership in the Church and ministry. (Ex. 15:20,21; Judg. 4:4; Is. 8:3; Joel 2:28; Acts 8:24-26; Col. 4:15; Phil. 4:2,3)


12. That the return of the Lord Jesus is imminent and that this has a vital bearing on how we live our lives. (Jn. 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thes. 4:16-18; Tit. 2:11-14)


13. Believers in  Jesus have victory over Satan and demonic forces in their lives by appropriating the victory of the cross and resurrection. We win by defensive and offensive battle over evil forces that desire to bring deception, destruction, and chaos into our lives. The final defeat of Satanic forces does not occur until the events of Rev. 20. (Eph. 6:10-18; 2 Cor. 2:14; 2 Tim. 2:3, 4; 1 Cor. 15:56, 57; 2 Cor. 10:3-5; Eph. 3:10, 11)

6. We are saved from perishing in our sin by faith in Jesus Christ and His complete work accomplished on the cross (his shed blood) and through His resurrection. We receive salvation by grace through faith and are born of the Spirit (born again), becoming children of God who will have eternal life in the presence of God. (Is. 53; Jn. 1:12-13; 5:24; Ro. 5:8-9; 1 Cor. 3-4; Heb. 9:22)
