Everything we say and do is centered on the good news of Jesus.

What is the Gospel?

Get to Know Outward Church

We've been loving Jesus and living outward in Salem since 2007.

LOVE JESUS

This is who we are. Disciples who love Jesus are marked by...

...HIS STORY

Gospel identity is established through regularly affirming and celebrating what Jesus has done. The good news of His finished work on the cross is the foundation of our worldview and the hope of our salvation.

2 Corinthians 5:17, Philippians 3:7-11, Romans 6:5-11, Galatians 2:20, Colossians 3:3

...HIS PEOPLE

Gospel community is an essential aspect of discipleship. Affection for the family of God is forged through regular rhythms of celebration, confession, mission, and growth.

Hebrews 10:24-25, Acts 2:42-47, 1 Peter 2:4-10, Ephesians 4:11-16, Colossians 3:15-17

...HIS RULE

Gospel submission leads to passionate faithfulness.⁣ When we devote our lives to Jesus' lordship through a lifestyle of worship, He becomes increasingly glorious to us and our desires begin to align with His.

John 14:15, Romans 8:5-8, Romans 12:1-2, Romans 6:17-18, 1 John 2:3, 1 John 5:3, John 14:23


When we devote our lives to Jesus' lordship through a lifestyle of worship, He becomes increasingly glorious to us and our desires begin to align with His.

Live outward

This is what we do. As disciples of Jesus...

…WE GIVE

We are committed to radical generosity. Joyfully sharing our time, energy, and resources displays an understanding that all we own belongs to God, and reflects how Jesus has been generous with us.⁣

2 Corinthians 9:7-8, 2 Corinthians 8:8-9, Romans 12:9-13

...WE SERVE

We are committed to seeking the good of those around us. Sacrificial service in the home, the church, and the city demonstrates God's heart for human flourishing through the establishment of a gospel culture.

1 John 3:16-18, 1 Peter 4:8-11, Galatians 5:13-15, Matthew 5:16

...WE SPEAK

We look for opportunities to articulate the story of Jesus in a way that boldly testifies to the grace and love of Christ. This begins in our homes and continues in friendships made inside and outside of the church.

1 Peter 3:15, Romans 1:16, Romans 10:14-15, 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, Matthew 28:18-20

Sacrificial service in the home, the church, and the city demonstrates God's heart for human flourishing through the establishment of a gospel culture.

Our Voice

DISRUPTIVE.

We aim to radically shift misconceptions of the local church toward a real understanding of the gospel of grace.

Ultimately, the message of Jesus is unsettling to believers and unbelievers alike, calling us all from self-reliant complacency to selfless dependence in following Him.

PASSIONATE.

Jesus' intent was never for us to simply have some religion in our lives. He calls us to love Him with head, heart, and hands.

We will not be satisfied until we are a church known for our radical devotion to Christ, tireless dedication to service, and an eagerness to see every person transformed by Him.

CRAFTED.

We are intentionally and uniquely made in the image of God. Each of us has a story and a set of gifts and passions that make an undeniable impact on those around us.

We craft environments and opportunities that are timeless, yet relevant; excellent, yet infused with vulnerability and authenticity.

We aim to radically shift misconceptions of the local church toward a real understanding of the gospel of grace.

Our Network

We are a part of the Acts 29 Network. Acts 29 is a diverse, global family of church-planting churches.

Love Jesus. Live outward.
