Jesus Outreach Center Christian Community Ministries

University Ministry,  College Ministry,   Varsity Ministry

Gospel-centered, Bible-based content aimed at honoring our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and serving his Church. We want to help people understand the implications of the gospel and the truth of God’s Word, for all of life, for all eternity, and for the glory of God.



Statement of Faith 


The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God’s infallible written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it was written without error (inerrant) in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks. We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. Because of the specialized calling of our movement, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us.

  1. There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
  2. Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one person forever.
  3. He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for human sins by dying on the cross as a substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone.
  4. He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died.
  5. He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and humanity, continually makes intercession for His own.
  6. Adam and Eve were originally created in the image of God. They sinned by disobeying God; thus, they were alienated from their Creator. That historic fall brought all people under divine condemnation.
  7. Human nature is corrupted. As a result, all people are totally unable to please God. Everyone is in need of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
  8. Salvation is wholly a work of God's free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justified them in His sight.
  9. It is the privilege of all who are born again of the Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment in which they trust Christ as their Savior. This assurance is not based upon any kind of human merit, but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who confirms in the believer the testimony of God in His written word.
  10. The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to individuals. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth and seals them until the day of redemption. His fullness, power and control are appropriated in the believer's life by faith.
  11. Believers are called to live so in the power of the indwelling Spirit that they will not fulfill the lust of the flesh but will bear fruit to the glory of God.
  12. Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body, which is composed of all people, living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith.
  13. God admonishes His people to assemble together regularly for worship, for participation in ordinances, for edification through the Scriptures and for mutual encouragement.
  14. At physical death the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord and awaits the resurrection of the body to everlasting glory and blessing.
  15. At physical death the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal, conscious separation from the Lord and awaits the resurrection of the body to everlasting judgment and condemnation.
  16. Jesus Christ will come again to the earth – personally, visibly and bodily – to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
  17. The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to disciple people from every nation. The fulfillment of that Great Commission requires that all worldly and personal ambitions be subordinated to a total commitment to “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.”


-  BELIEFS &  VALUES  - 

1. We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God, God in human form. We believe that the virgin-born Son of God died for our sins, was buried, rose from the dead after 3 days and is coming again. We believe He is both fully God and fully man. (Philippians. 2:5-7; John. 14:9; John. 8:58; John. 1:1, 14; Colossians. 2:9)


2. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, the written record of His supernatural revelation of Himself to man, absolute in its authority and complete in its revelation. (2 Timothy. 3:16- 17; 2 Peter. 1:20-21


3. We believe that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and are in need of salvation found only in Jesus Christ (Romans. 3:23; 1 Colossians. 3:11


4. We believe that  Jesus Christ died on the cross in our place to atone for the sins of mankind, including our sins as well. We believe in Jesus Christ on the cross as ransom, as the expression of divine love (and therefore an example of the Way), and especially as God’s victory over the enemy. (Isaiah. 53:3-6; 2 Colossians. 5:21; Romans. 5:8


5. We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead as prophesied. (1 Corinthians. 15:1-4), and that he is coming again. (John. 14:1-6; 1 Thessalonians. 4:16-18; 2 Peter. 3:3-4, 10, 13


6. As scripture says, we believe in heaven and hell, and in his just and merciful judgment to come. (Hebrews. 9:27; 2 Thessalonians. 1:8-9; Revelations. 20:15; 2 Co. 5:6-10


7. We believe that the forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life are promised to those who trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. (John. 3:16-17; Ephesians. 2:8-9); and that those putting their trust in Jesus Christ should turn away from their sins, confess their faith and be baptized into Him. (Romans. 10:9, Acts. 2:38-39; Romans. 6:3-4)  We reserve baptism for adults and children mature enough to repent of (turn away from) sin and confess faith in Jesus Christ. We ask believers who have not been baptized by immersion to submit to that New Testament practice. (Romans. 10:9; Acts. 2:38-39; Romans. 6:3-4


8. We believe that those who receive Jesus Christ also receive the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit: He marks them as the possession of God, manifests the fruit of righteousness in their character and endows them with spiritual gifts for ministry. (2 Corinthians. 1:21-22; Galatians. 5:22-23; 1 Corinthians. 12:4-6


9. We believe the church’s worship of God together on the first day of the week (Sunday) is a joy-filled Biblical practice that honors the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit and blesses believers today as well. Because the New Testament tells of the gathering of the church to share the Lord’s Supper each week (Acts. 20:7), University-Ministry Campus Church is blessed to share in communion with Jesus Christ and one another every week. Our worship includes music that is contemporary and ancient, hymns of the past and present day. There is worship time each Sunday that honors God with the human voice. Everyone present is invited to join in with their voices to glorify God. We believe that all believers should give a generous, intentional, regular, proportional gift of their income to God, through the local church, as a spiritual discipline. (Malachi. 3:10; 1 Corinthians. 16:2; 2 Corinthians. 9:6-7


10. We believe that God answers prayer, in ways seen and unseen, through natural and supernatural ways. We believe prayer is a spiritual discipline that should be taught, learned and practiced within the Body of Jesus Christ. (Acts. 1:14; Colossians. 4:2; 1 John. 5:14-15


11. We believe the Church is a body of Jesus Christ-followers who should live in the community and need the connection found in the fellowship of small group gatherings. (Acts. 2:44-47)
