The Chinese Missions Convention is a 5-day event with over 30 years of history that has one purpose: to see people unleashed for God’s global glory.
CMC gives you space to listen to God. Come here to reflect and pray; to get away and hear from God. Take time to discern the next steps in your faith journey and be inspired by those who are following God’s call on their life.
Every end of a year is a new beginning. What will yours be?
With speakers from around the world, family-friendly activities and youth service projects, get excited about discerning God’s call and charting a new direction for you and your family in living out God’s joy and love to the world.
We believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only hope for our world. CMC is committed to the Gospel message of redemption, the call to repentance, and the timeless biblical truth of salvation by grace through faith. We believe in the urgency of the Gospel message, for apart from faith in Christ there is no salvation. At every convention we call men and women to take up the cross in obedience to the call of Jesus.
Unique to CMC is the full missions program designed to equip people from every seasons of life, from children, youth, to singles, families and empty-nesters. Through dynamic speakers, creative programming, fun interactive activities, and family service projects, CMC brings a life-changing, missions-education program to help form a heart for missions for everyone.
CMC is an inter-church, inter-denominational missions convention for the local church, through a broad partnership between the local church, mission organizations, and Ambassadors for Christ (AFC). As different churches and organizations join forces together in missions and learn form each other, the entire body grows stronger. We believe this close collaboration from start to finish forms a rich synergy to bring great joy to the body of Christ and even greater glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.
If the Great Commission is about discipleship, then a mission convention must also be about discipleship. Our conviction is that every Christian should be a disciple and a disciple-maker. CMC is deeply passionate about equipping Chinese believers and churches to overcome the many traditional barriers to relational discipleship, and to launch and nurture a disciple-making movement that will unleash kingdom builders to make strong disciples in the Chinese world and for all nations.
CMC Vision: To see a movement of millions of Kingdom builders unleashed globally and locally
CMC Mission: Mobilize Christ followers to become reproducing Kingdom-builders
CMC South Goals: Unleash 500 CHRIST FOLLOWERS for God’s Global Glory who will
CMC Values: These values represent our conviction
It has been said that we live in the best and the worst of times. There are more Christians today than ever before in the history of the world. And yet there are still nine unsaved people for every one believer. 3 billion people remain unreached for Jesus Christ: 1.3 billion Chinese and 1.7 billion from other people groups. God has given us tremendous resources: His Word and His people. He has uniquely gifted us so that together as individuals, as families, and as local churches we can be unleashed for His global glory.
CMC seeks to be used by God to minister to both Chinese and English speaking believers of Chinese churches. For over 30 years, God has used AFC to partner with churches and other para-church organizations via CMC to mobilize, inspire and equip over 25,000 believers and family members of all ages on the East and West Coasts. CMC has been a special place for inter- and intra-church unity, to promote the common goal of making reproducing disciples globally and locally. Over 3,000 have made public commitments to take steps to be unleashed for God’s global glory.
“God is not asking whether you can, God is asking, are you willing? If you are willing, God can.”
Rev. Moses Chow, AFC Co-founder, at CMC ‘98
Since its founding in June 1963, God has entrusted Ambassadors for Christ (AFC) with a unique and strategic ministry. Exciting things are happening at AFC as we focus on this vision of reaching Chinese intellectuals for Christ and mobilizing them as a vital mission force for God's Kingdom through evangelizing, equipping, and discipling. We seek to accomplish this mission via four primary areas of ministry: Campus, Discipleship and Training, Literature, and Mission Mobilization.
The Great Commission is an integral part of AFC’s mission. CMC was started in 1983 by Rev. Moses Chow, co-founder of AFC, who himself was a cross-cultural missionary sent by the Chinese church in China to Indonesia. Today, Chinese Mission Conventions are held in the US East Coast, West Coast, and South, as well as UK and Europe.
