Below are the four Core Values of “WHO WE ARE” at Faith Outreach:
Gospel Centered Teaching
We value the Bible, which is God’s reliable, authoritative, and sufficient revelation. We value a growing love for the Word, as well as a deepening understanding of it, in each person within the church, whether old or young.
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. -2 Timothy 3.16
Spirit Formed Lives
Jesus promised His followers they would receive power – power to move in new dimensions of worship, praise, prayer, service, and witness. (See Acts 1:5-8; 2:1-4) We value the timeless practices and principles set forth in Scripture that lead to a Christian life filled with power and maturity under Jesus’ lordship and the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
Family and Community
We value building up strong marriages and families, where God’s Word is taught and lived out, where husbands love their wives as Christ loves the church, where wives respect their husbands, where hearts of the parents are turned toward their children, and the hearts of the children toward their parents. We also value living, and serving together with ALL members of the body of Christ, as a healthy and active community.
God has called us to be more and more like Jesus and to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19). Jesus lived a life of making disciples through personal investment in others. Jesus gave of Himself in order to help His disciples grow and mature. We desire to follow His example by giving to others what God has given us so that we all may be “built up…attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” (Ephesians 4.13)
In association with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, Faith Outreach is an interdenominational fellowship, dedicated to glorifying God, equipping and edifying His people, and reaching out to make disciples of all nations.
We exist to love God and love people. We present the gospel of Jesus Christ to inspire individuals to progress from seekers into believers. We provide an atmosphere to help nuture discipleship and build a relationship with Jesus Christ. We encourage people to discover their gifts and talents through serving. We strive to train and equip individuals to reach their world for Christ.
