Statement of Faith and Christian Calling
Outreach Community Ministries as an organization and
as the individuals who are associated with it, affirm
and place our trust in the central Christian belief that
Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord.
Furthermore, we affirm and place our trust in the
historic doctrines of the Christian faith as expressed
in the Apostle’s Creed*:
We believe in God the Father almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth,
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended to the place of the dead.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
And sits at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy universal church,
The common bond of all believers,
The forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting.
We recognize that we are called by God to be His
representatives and His presence in the world we
live in and communities that we serve. As such,
we integrate our community services and corporate
practices around biblical standards and Christian
principles. Furthermore, in both our professional
and personal lives we choose to live according
to biblical standards for Christian character and
moral conduct. In doing so we seek to honor
God and obey His teachings.
