What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

We Believe

The following are the core beliefs of Redemption Outreach Center based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these Biblical doctrines.

Holy Bible

The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God.
It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths.
In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible and inerrant
(II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26).


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory. (John 1:1,14, 20:28; I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6; I Timothy 2:5)


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.


Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word
and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us.
It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit
and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life

The Church

The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus' Great Commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Holy Spirit

All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect
and seek  the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
With it comes the power for life and service,
along with the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit is an experience distinct from
and subsequent to the experience of salvation.
The baptism of believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed
by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the
Spirit of God gives them utterance.


Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal damnation.


Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all who believe in Jesus Christ.


After living a life on earth,
the unbelievers will be judged by God
and sent to Hell where they will be eternally tormented by the Devil and the Fallen Angels.

Second Coming

Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed  by the Scriptures.


Water Baptism

Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the
Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.


A unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and grape juice
(symbolizing the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ)
are taken in remembrance of Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross.

Healing of the Sick

Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the commission of
Jesus to His disciples.  It is given as a sign,  which is to follow believers in their lives. It is also a part of Jesus' work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Sprit.
