Mission & Beliefs

The Outlaw Bible Student project is non-denominational in nature and began as an educational outreach project started by New World Christian Ministries. Our mission is devoted to expounding the truths concerning God’s divine plan for humankind as written in the Holy Bible, both Old Testament and New Testament, and helping people to understand how God’s plan is relevant to their own lives.

We are evangelical because we believe in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and have a commitment to the demands of the New Testament. We believe in the confessing of sins and in Christ’s forgiveness.

We are fundamental in that we believe in the virgin birth of Jesus, the atoning character of his death, his resurrection from the dead, and his second coming to establish an earthly reign.

Although not Pentecostal, because we do not believe in speaking in tongues, we do believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s participating force which can empower someone in his service.

We are progressive, believing in human sexual equality and that both men and women should have equal opportunities in Christian leadership. And we do not believe that science is the enemy of faith, but that science and Christian doctrine can be accommodated together.
