Christian International Network, is a network of churches under the covering of Dr. Bill Hamon, Bishop of Christian International Ministries Network headquartered in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Together we possess global vision to build the church on the foundations of the Apostles and Prophets. We believe God is restoring all the gifts of the Spirit which were active in the early Church. As the 1st century believers turned their world upside down through the power of the Holy Spirit, God wants to move in and through His people today. The foundational ministry statement of CIAN is “To Bring Church Reformation for Territorial Transformation”.

Today, we’re preparing for generations of synergy demonstrating the spoken voice of the Lord advancing His kingdom.
