The insignia was designed in 1946 or 1947 by the late Dr. Ellen Alston,a former executive secretary treasurer, and in 1981 an explanation of it was adopted. It features an equilateral triangle, the convention's name, a cross, the year, motto, and a globe. The equilateral triangle suggests the Trinity: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each being equal in the Godhead, thus reminding us of the author and foundation of mission through missions and our power for helping to extend the Kingdom. At the apex of triangle, is the Cross with a sunburst effect suggesting the illuminating work of Christ and its far penetrating effects. It also points us toward being witnesses of and to that work through missions (preaching, teaching, healing, and serving). 1884 is the year of the Convention's official beginning. "Christ In Every Home" is our motto. We are interested in leading the home and family to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and be active in missions. For someone has said that the home can serve as a "miniature church." The globe or world symbol indicates that our field for missions is the world. The globe's being at the foot of the Cross reminds us also that all the world will kneel to the name of Jesus when He comes again.
