Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches of The Philippines - History


CAMACOP was incorporated in 1947 as a national church of the C&MA Philippine Missions. The Christian and Missionary Alliance in USA expanded its missions works in the Philippines in 1902. The C&MA was assigned in Zamboanga - Sulu Archipelago and Cotabato – Davao regions of Mindanao Southern Philippines. The first Alliance Church was planted in 1902 in Tetuan, Zamboanga City, the first Protestant church in Muslim Mindanao. After WW 2 the local churches planted by C&MA Missionaries decided to organize themselves as a national church. Thus in 1947 the first 13 local churches incorporated themselves as The Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches of the Philippines, and in 1949 CAMACOP was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) thus became a legal personality. It is headed by the National Executive Board which consists of the CAMACOP President, CAMACOP vice-president, ministers and laymen. In 2005, the CAMACOP By-Laws was amended to add the title of Executive Bishop to the CAMACOP president and the title of Auxiliary Bishop to the CAMACOP vice-president.
