"And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28

What is the ACMA?

We are an Acts chapter 2 community moving in the power of the Holy Spirit. We are a set apart community within a community, a governing system within a governing system. We are what Christians should have been since the founding of the nation. We are the organic church. We are God's army.


The ACMA is the ecclesia that defends religious freedom no matter the cost and where the members provide for the needs of each other rather than sending each other to government programs. Nowhere in the Word did God command the government to take care of His people.

The ACMA was birthed out of Colorado Springs in December 2023. We encourage you to pray about joining the community and being obedient to the Lord's response. 

How does the ACMA work from a practical perspective?

If a member's car breaks down, she can search the member directory herself for members to diagnose it, tow it, repair it, and loan her a vehicle or take her to and from work while it's in the shop. She can even search the directory for a member to give her a small, no interest loan if she needs financial aid to keep moving forward. The members involved in each transaction are free to decide how they want to arrange the compensation - fee, trade, pro bono, or any combination - and free to decide what type of covenant to use - verbal or written. In every case, the ACMA will mediate, per the terms of the ACMA Membership Covenant, any civil disputes that arise between members.  

How much are membership dues and what is included in them?

Membership is free and you can sign up as an individual, family, or small business.


All memberships include:

  • A profile in the Member Directory allowing you to show up in search results for the services you provide. There is no limit to the number of services a member can offer, you simply have to be able to perform them with enthusiasm and excellence.  

  • Access to the community calendar filled with classes (free or fee-based), groups or clubs, and events hosted by members.

  • Ability to post classes (free or fee-based), groups, clubs and events for members and even non-members if you choose. 

  • Access to the member directory allowing you to search for skilled trades, licensed and unlicensed services and non-government options for housing, etc. provided by members.

  • Access to templated do-it-yourself covenants for agreements between members.

  • Biblically based and legally binding mediation for civil disputes between members.


Do I have to be a Christian to become a member?

Yes. but it doesn't matter if you're new to the faith or a lifer Christian, nor do you need to attend church. You may have been raised as a Christian but are now a prodigal or angry with God. Come home. The standard is that all members must agree to a Statement of Faith, acknowledge the Ten Point Credo, and commit to a Christian Lifestyle that limits bad habits and promotes self-control. Just as a soldier in the U.S. military commits to a code of ethics and allegiance to the flag, members of the ACMA strive to achieve a life of discipline and loyalty to the cross.

Can a person with a criminal record become a member?

Absolutely. In some ways, the ACMA can be thought of as criminal justice reform that requires no government funding or legislation. We encourage those who have experienced incarceration, probation or parole to join the ACMA. Many people who lost their freedom have a fire inside them to fight to stay out from under the control of the government. Those who found Jesus behind bars are allies of Christians who have never been incarcerated. With the help of the ACMA community, men and women coming out of incarceration can be fully emancipated from the government by walking out of prison with a clean slate and avoiding financial bondage to the government through welfare, government jobs, government contractor jobs, or jobs with any employer that receives funding from the government.. 

What is the process to become a member?

The first step in the process is to complete the ACMA Membership Covenant available on the Membership page that includes the terms of the agreement, the Statement of Faith, the Ten Point Credo, the Christian Lifestyle

After you submit the document you'll complete a new member registration profile. Your profile includes contact information and details about you or your business, and a photo or logo. Your information will be accessible in the Member Directory by other members, 


If you have a business membership, or you personally intend to provide services for other members you'll complete a form indicating the categories and subcategories of those services. Your profile will show up in the results for members who search for a service that matches what you selected. Additionally, your profile will indicate the compensation methods that are acceptable to you such as fee for service, trade for service, volunteer/pro bono or any combination of those. Members are able to search using those criteria as well. For example, a member without an ability to pay can search for members who selected the volunteer/pro bono option or trade for service option. 


Once you're a member, you'll also be able to submit events and classes (free or fee-based) to the community calendar for members and even non-members, if you choose. And of course, you'll be able to search for members to find the help that you or your family personally need, too!
