We’re Renew World Outreach and we’re here to help.
Our Statement of Faith
Renew World Outreach is an ecumenical organization, and as such, we adhere to the following doctrinal beliefs to which there has historically been general agreement among all true Christians. Within these bounds, we desire to allow freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us (Romans 14:1-23; 1 Corinthians 8:9-13 and 9:22-23).
The Word of God
We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are the inspired and inerrant Word of God. The Bible is the final authority for all we believe and how we are to live (Matthew 5:17-18; John 10:35 and 17:17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21).
We believe that the one true God exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; John 1:1-32, 10:30 and 14:7-26; 1 Corinthians 8:5-6; Ephesians 4:4-7; Colossians 1:11-20; Revelation 1:4-6).
We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ (Messiah), God’s Son, that He is fully God and fully man, the living Word who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. We believe Jesus lived a sinless life performing miracles as evidence of His deity, that He suffered and died, providing atonement to us through His shed blood, that He rose bodily from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the Father, and that He will personally return to earth in power and glory and will judge the living and the dead (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 24:1-7 and 24:36-53; John 1:1-4, 1:14, and 1:29; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; Romans 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; 2 Corinthians 5:10 and 5:21; Ephesians 1:7; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:19-22; Hebrews 1:1-4, 4:15, and 9:13-15; 1 John 2:1-2; Revelation 1:5-7 and 1:17-18).
We believe that all mankind have sinned against God and are subject to His righteous judgment. The only way to obtain salvation from our sins and God’s judgment is through faith in Jesus Christ by the grace of God (John 3:16-18 and 14:6; Acts 4:10-12 and 16:30-31; Romans 3:19-28, 4:1-8, and 10:8-13; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7).
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who indwells, regenerates, and equips the Christian for godly living and service (Matthew 3:11; John 3:5-8 and 14:15-17; Acts 1:4-8, 2:1-18, 2:43, and 4:31; Romans 8:5-17; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 and 14:1; Galatians 5:16-26; Ephesians 1:13-14).
We believe in the resurrection of all mankind. Those who have received salvation shall be resurrected unto eternal life in paradise with God, and those who have not received salvation shall be resurrected unto damnation and eternal punishment, forever separated from God (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:31-46; Mark 9:42-48; John 5:25-29; 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; 2 Corinthians 5:1-10; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:11-15, and 21:3-8).
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of His body, the Church (Matthew 16:17-19; Acts 2:37-47; 1 Corinthians 1:10, 3:5-17, 12:12 and 12:27; Ephesians 1:22-23, 4:1-6; and 4:11-16; 1 Peter 2:4-5 and 2:9-10; Revelation 7:9-10).
Evangelism and Discipleship
We believe that the ministry of evangelism and discipleship is a responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:13-20, 9:35-38, 10:27, 22:37-39, and 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-18; John 13:15; Acts 1:8 and 2:42; Romans 10:9-17; 1 Corinthians 1:11; Ephesians 2:10 and 4:11-17; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12; 1 Timothy 4:6-16; 2 Timothy 2:2; 1 Peter 3:15).
Marriage and Human Sexuality
We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore sin. We believe that God created the human race male and female in His image and that all conduct with the intent to adopt a gender other than one’s birth gender is immoral and therefore sin (Genesis 1:27 and 2:24-25; Exodus 20:14-17 and 22:19; Leviticus 18:22-23 and 20:13-16; Deuteronomy 22:5; Psalm 139:13-17; Matthew 5:27-28 and 19:4-9; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 and 6:15-20; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; Jude 1:7).
The Sanctity of Life
We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end and that we must have concern for both the spiritual and physical needs of our fellow man (Deuteronomy 30:19-20; Psalm 139:13-17; Proverbs 24:11; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Luke 10:25-37; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10; James 2:14-26).
In 1998 David Palusky was faced with this question: “How can we present the Gospel to remote people and empower their native leaders to disciple their own tribes?” Drawing on his electrical engineering background, David created solar-powered audio/video systems for teaching groups both small and large without electricity or a cumbersome generator. The impact of these tools inspired David with his brother to begin Renew World Outreach, with the goal to equip God’s world-changers with continual advances in creative technology – helping to bring the Gospel to the “ends of the earth!
