World Outreach Ministries is an affiliation of interdenominational missionaries and humanitarian workers who need a dependable home office. It was established over 43 years ago by Jason Peebles in 1979 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We provide a professional home office for the mission workers we serve and perform a variety of services for them each month.
The mission workers we serve are from all types of church backgrounds and are involved in a variety of outreaches - evangelism, church planting, schools, leadership training, medical clinics, aviation, translation work, water systems, children's shelters, support roles, and so much more. God's kingdom needs all kinds of workers! Our heart is to serve missionaries who are on the "frontlines" and provide them with a dependable staff along with the tools they need to succeed.

Our focus is to help advance the Great Commission by serving missionaries and humanitarian workers with a dependable home office.
We assist these workers as their Home Office by providing many critical services that they need in order to succeed: processing donations that come in through our online system or by mail; depositing funds twice per month into the missionary's Bank account; sending tax deductible receipts to their supporters; providing donor login accounts where their supporters can manage their giving information; setting-up and managing automatic monthly gifts; list maintenance to keep the missionary's contact list updated with current info; Training Videos; and a web-based system that allows our missionaries to login 24/7. With our system, they can log-in to their account, track funds, update their list, generate reports, build Excel files as needed, print mailing labels, and much more! Providing a missionary office, missionary assistance, and missionary help is what we do.
Our vision is to help advance the Great Commission throughout the world by serving missionaries on the frontlines.
Our core value is that each person -- regardless of race, culture, nation, belief, or lifestyle -- is valuable to God and in need of Jesus Christ. According to Matthew 16:26, the value of a human soul is immeasurable -- "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his soul? Or, what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Every human being (regardless of how "good" they are or how miserable their current state) should be treated with respect and given the opportunity to know God's great love through Christ. In truth, all of us are "prodigal sons" in need of returning to the Father's House (Lk 15:11-32).
Our Missionary Agency provides the system and tools that mission workers need to fulfill their call and advance the Great Commission.
Statement of faith
Our Missionary Agency is truly an interdenominational affiliation of workers for Christ. We serve missionaries from all types of church backgrounds. Thus, our Statement of Faith is meant to serve as a general guideline for unity, and is not intended to be an all-inclusive statement of Theology.
We accept the Scriptures as the revealed will of God, the all sufficient rule of faith and practice, and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, declare these statements of faith:
The Scriptures Inspired.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. 2 Tim 3:15-17, 1 Pt 1:23-25, Heb 4:12
The One True Godhead.
The triune Godhead is comprised of three separate and distinct persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed, and function as one member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal. Jn 14:9-11, 23-26, 2 Cor 3:27,18
Man, His Fall and Redemption.
Man was created good and upright, for God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness." But, man, by voluntary transgression, fell and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. Gen 1:26-31, 3:1-7, Rom 5:12-21
The Salvation of Man.
Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood and work of Jesus Christ. On the cross Jesus Christ bore our sins, griefs, and infirmities -- providing salvation, deliverance, and healing for all mankind. Isa 53:4-6, Mat 8:16,17, Rom 10:4-13
Faith and Works
Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works; however, our labors for Him are important for the advancement of His Kingdom and expressions of His great love. Rom 10:9-10, Ep 2:8-9, Titus 2: 5-7, 2 Cor 5:9-10, Mt 25:14f.
The Evidences of Salvation
The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct inner witness of the Holy Spirit (Rom 8:16). The outward evidence is a changed life reflecting God's love and kindness toward all men, righteousness, and holiness. Eph 5:1f, Col 3:1f.
The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is the third member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit has been sent by Jesus Christ to indwell and to empower all believers, male and female. Every godly aspect of the believer's life and the Church's life is accomplished by the influence and work of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit indwells believers (Jn 14:7), seals them for the day of redemption (Eph 1:13,14), baptizes them with power (Acts 1:4-8), fills and controls them (Eph 5:17-19), and sanctifies them (1 Cor 6:11).
The Holy Spirit desires to manifest Himself through two main avenues of expression: the fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit. God wants all believers to yield to the CHARACTER of God (Gal 5:22-25) and to the ABILITY of God (1 Cor 12:7-10).
It is the privilege and command that all believers should "follow after love and desire spiritual gifts" (1 Cor 14:1).
The Holy Spirit empowers both men and women for ministry - "And on my menservants and on my maidservants I will pour out my Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy" (Acts 2:18). "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28).
Baptism in Water.
The ordinance of baptism by burial with Christ should be observed as commanded in the Scriptures -- by all who truly repent and believe in Christ as Savior and Lord. In so doing, they declare to the world that they have died with Jesus and that they have also been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Mat 28:19, Rom 6-8).
The Lord's Supper.
The ordinance of the Lord's Supper should be observed by all believers as commanded in the Scriptures. "And when He gave thanks, He broke it, and said, 'Take, eat; this is my body which is broken for you. Do this in remembrance of Me.' In the same way also the cup, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this as often as you drink it in remembrance of Me.' For as often as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do show the Lord's death until He come." (1Cor 11:23-32)
The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of the Great Commission. Each true believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and Church of the first born, which are written in Heaven. Every believer should be in a supportive role of the local churches, which are visible expressions of the invisible Church. (Eph 1:22,23, Eph 2:19-22, Heb 12:22-24)
The Gospel Message.
The Church has been given the Great Commission, to take the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ to every tongue, tribe, people, and nation (Mt 28:18-20, Mk 16:15-20). The gospel message encompasses total salvation for the whole person:
Spiritual. Jn 3:3-8, 2 Cor 5:17-21, Rom 10:9-10.
Mental. 2 Tim 1:7, Rom 12:2, Isa 26:3, Jos 1:8.
Physical. Isa 53:4-5, Mat 8:16-17, 1 Pt 2:24, 1 Cor 15:53.
Financial. 3 Jn 2, Mal 3:10-11, 2 Cor 9:6-10, Deut 28:1-14.
Social. Prov 3:1-6, 1 Thes 4:9-12, 1 Jn 2:3-11, 5:1-5.
The Marriage Covenant.
We believe that "marriage" has only one meaning as delineated in Scripture - a covenant relationship between one man and one woman in an exclusive union that is formally recognized by law. God created human beings as male and female (Gen 1:27). The complementary, relational nature of the human race as "male and female" reflects the order given by God when He created human beings "in His image" and commanded them to "multiply" from their union (Gen 1:26-28; 2:21-25; 3:20; 4:1; 5:1-2; Rom 8:29; 1 Cor 7:2; 2 Cor 3:18; Eph 5:25-28; 6:1-3). - more -
The Blessed Hope.
The Scriptures declare that Jesus Christ is coming again to gather all His Saints unto Himself. The dead in Christ shall rise first -- then those believers who are alive will be gloriously transformed. Death will be swallowed up in victory. (1Cor 15:50-58, 1Thess 4:16-17, 2 Thess 2:1).
The New Heaven and The New Earth.
The Bible declares that there shall be a new heaven and a new earth where there shall be no more sorrow, death, curse, or disease. The Saints shall live forever with God to rule and reign with Jesus Christ. (Rev 21 & 22).

World Outreach Ministries was established in 1979 by Jason Peebles. As a result of his own outreach into many different nations, the Missionary Agency developed for the purpose of assisting mission workers. The missionaries that we serve are from all types of church backgrounds and are involved in a variety of outreaches - evangelism, church planting, schools, medical clinics, aviation, translation work, children's shelters, leadership training, support roles, and more. God's kingdom needs all kinds of workers. Our heart is to serve missionaries who are on the "frontlines" and provide them with a dependable home office.
Since 1979, World Outreach Ministries has reached thousands of people for Christ through missionaries, conferences, sponsored campaigns, broadcasts, and resource materials.
