Outrider Ministries proclaims one all-sufficient God, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. We worship the one living God, eternally existent as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – one in being and nature.
We were created in God’s image for fellowship with Him, but we also profess that all people have sinned – missed God’s perfect mark – and fallen short of the glory of our flawless Creator. The consequence of that sin is death and, without intervention, God’s eternal judgment in the lake of fire.
Salvation in Christ
However we trumpet the Good News – God the Father sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, who lived a sinless life and was crucified dead and buried. On the third day, He arose from the grave and ascended into heaven. We verify whoever believes in Him shall not die but have eternal life in the kingdom of God. That requires an individual to repent of their sins and be converted so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Holy Spirit.
We attest Scripture was given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the child of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
People of Action
By the grace of the Father and through the acceptance of Christ, the indwelling presence of the Spirit, and His perfect Scripture, we must become doers of the word, and not hearers only. We are instructed to love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind, as this is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it, that we love our neighbors as ourself. We must embody His Word, putting it into action and letting it light our paths and direct our ways.
As adherents to the resurrected Christ, we are part of the fellowship of unified believers – the one true church. God has given us a commission to fulfill His work. Declaring His holy name and the forgiveness available through Christ, we are to go into all the world, making disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all things that He has commanded us. We also are called to be on watch for Christ’s triumphant return.
In this God-given pursuit, we must individually live in such a way that our light so shines before others that they may see our good works and glorify our almighty and loving Father in heaven.
As Christ-followers, we must also petition God, giving ourselves continually to prayer for others and to the ministry of the word, knowing that the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous person avails much.
Encouragement and Service
Finally, God’s word instructs us to comfort, encourage, and edify those around us while humbly serving one another in love.
With that in mind, Outrider is a going ministry for a coming Savior, and our mission is to encourage the disheartened, proclaim the message of Christ, serve those in need, and pray for you.
