about us 


We are an evangelical church belonging to the Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA) denomination. With a membership of over 3,000 members, we hold two services; Hmong and English speaking. We believe in living out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40) ministering to people of all kinds.

sphac history

In the mid to late 1970s, Hmong immigrants arrived in the Twin Cities.  Those who were Christians looked for each other and started worshiping together from house to house.  As these meetings grew, St. Paul Hmong Alliance Church was formed in 1984. The congregation at that time was approximately 300 members. As the need was recognized to have a place of our own, the decision was made to buy land and build our own church building.
