Christian Alliance. A religious association organized in 1887, with its head quarters at 692 Eighth avenue, New York city. It was founded by Rev. A. B. Simpson, who has been its president from the date of its organization. Its membership, as described by its founder, "consists of all professing Christians who subscribe to its principles and enroll their names." Its objects are stated to be "the wide diffusion of the Gospel in its fullness, the promotion of a deeper and higher Christian life, and the work of evangelization, especially among the neglected classes, by highway missions and any other practical methods." At the end of 1895 the organization is said to have established 265 missions in China, India, Japan, Haiti, and Congo Free State. In New York city special work is done for fallen women by means of "The Door of Hope," a branch "home" opened by the Alliance.
