The Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals is a broad coalition of evangelical Christians from various denominations, including Baptist, Congregational (Independent), Anglican (Episcopal), Presbyterian, Reformed, and Lutheran. The purpose of the Alliance’s existence is to call the Church, amidst a dying culture, to repent of its worldliness, to recover and confess the truth of God’s Word as did the reformers, and to see that truth embodied in doctrine, worship, and life.
The Gospel Coalition (TGC) is a fellowship of evangelical churches deeply committed to renewing our faith in the gospel of Christ and to reforming our ministry practices to conform fully to the Scriptures. TGC believes gospel–centered ministry is characterized by: empowered corporate worship, evangelistic effectiveness, counter–cultural community, the integration of faith and work, and he doing of justice and mercy. Such a balance will produce churches with winsome and theologically substantial preaching, dynamic evangelism and apologetics, and church growth and church planting.
9Marks exists to equip church leaders with a biblical vision and practical resources for displaying God's glory to the nations through healthy churches. Believing the local church is the focal point of God’s plan for displaying his glory to the nations, and that the Bible is sufficient for the life of the church, 9Marks is church-focused, scripture-focused, and pastor-focused. The nine marks are (1) expositional preaching, (2) biblical theology, (3) a biblical understanding of the good news, (4) a biblical understanding of conversion, (5) a biblical understanding of evangelism, (6) biblical church membership, (7) biblical church discipline, (8) biblical discipleship and growth, and (9) biblical church leadership. These are not the only things which are necessary for building healthy churches, they are nine practices which many churches today overlook and that need to be emphasized once again.
