Christian and Missionary Alliance Church
Dover, Morris County

The Christian and Missionary Alliance, a small sect with another church in North Plainfield, built this frame church in 1873, then rebuilt it about 1890. They organized perhaps as early as 1811, although there is little in the published sources about them.
      It now serves the Iglesia Adventista del Septmodia Christo Viene, but in the 1970s it was used as a hall for a labor union. There is virtually nothing about the exterior that is church-like, but that is essentially true of the other churches in the state built by this small denomination.
