First Alliance Church of Orlando dates back before the turn of the century. About this time a family from Orlando, who operated a millinery shop, made a trip to New York City. While there, they became captivated by the evangelistic vision of the Christian and Missionary Alliance founder, Dr. A.B. Simpson. When they returned to Orlando, they began to interest others in the vision of fulfilling God’s Great Commission.
First Alliance Orlando is the oldest Alliance church in Florida and has a rich heritage in being a part of the world-wide mission and ministry of our denomination. From our church, God has called out many into various and remote parts of the world-missionaries, pastors, pastors’ wives and laymen far and wide. We’ve started several daughter churches and also have partnered to develop several other churches.
During the years of the church’s existence, its facilities have been located at three different sites. The first services were held at 22 West Pine Street, but in 1925 the church at Delaney and Anderson was built and occupied until our present facility was constructed in 1972.
