Statement of faith

The Bible
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, inerrant, authoritative Word of God.
Psalm 119:105 & 160; Proverbs 30:5; II Timothy 1:13, 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; II Peter 1:20-21

God
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. He is intelligent, spiritual, and a personal Being, the Creator, the Sole Redeemer of man, the Preserver, and the Ruler of the universe. God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, according to the purposes of His grace. He is all-powerful, all-loving, and all wise.
Genesis 1:1, 26-27; Psalm 90:2; Isaiah 26:8; Acts 17:2-34; II Corinthians 13:14; I Peter 1:2

Jesus Christ
We believe in the complete deity and humanity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church, and in His personal return in power and glory.
Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-14; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-4; I Corinthians 15:3-4; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 4:14-15

Salvation
We believe salvation involves the redemption of the whole man and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior by faith, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense, salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and glorification.
John 1:12, 14:6; Romans 5:1, 6:23; Galatians 3:36; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:

Holy Spirit
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. The Holy Spirit acts in complete unity with the Trinity, without division from the Father and the Son.
John 16:7-14, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; II Corinthians 3:17; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18; 1 Corinthians 12:4,11-14,18

Resurrection
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
Matthew 24:27, 30, 36, &44, 25:31-46; I Thessalonians 4:14-18, 5:1; II Peter 3:7; Revelation 1:18, 3:11, 20:1-22:13

Unity of Believers
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 2:11-22

History

Orphan Outreach was founded in 2007 to glorify Jesus Christ by having a significant, long-term impact on orphaned and vulnerable children by equipping each child for a fulfilling, independent Christian life in their community.

Orphan Outreach co-founders Mike Douris, Paula Hayes, Eraina Larson, Amy Norton, Amy Seale and Tiffany Taylor Wines, along with the Board of Directors, including Jean Halleen, Blair Pogue, Esther Rogers, Dr. Robert Sloan, Stephen Spencer, and Wilson Williams, found inspiration in the Bible verse, James 1:27:

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

Religion at its essence, is taking care of those who can not take of themselves. This is the heart of Orphan Outreach.

Together with our supporters, Orphan Outreach provides education, food, medical care and emotional healing to more than 10,000 children and their families each year. Coming alongside local churches, ministries and organizations in countries around the world, we offer professional expertise, help fund their efforts, and supply much needed additional volunteers. Through our ministry programs, we empower local leaders - those who understand their communities best and know what their people truly need - to do even more to restore hope to orphaned and vulnerable children.
