Our Mission

To restore hope and provide opportunities for people to become all that God intends them to be; partner with the local church to put Christian faith into action through service to the community.

Our mission focus is serving the most vulnerable children, teens and families in DuPage County. We serve people of all races, ethnicities, creeds, gender and orientation regardless of their ability to pay.

Our Vision

Outreach and its partner churches are dedicated to putting this mission into action by providing a full range of charitable, human service, educational, religious and community development activities. These activities help people realize their God-given potential as uniquely gifted individuals in their family, community and relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.

Our Faith Statement

Outreach Community Ministries is a Christian organization. As an organization and as the individuals who are associated with it, we affirm and place our trust in the central Christian belief that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord.

We affirm the historic doctrines of the Christian faith as expressed in the Apostle’s Creed*:

We believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary.

Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended to the place of the dead. The third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he shall come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal church, the common bond of all believers, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

Furthermore, we recognize that we are called by God to be His representatives and His presence in the world. In our organizational practices and community services we incorporate Christian principles and biblical standards. In both our professional and personal lives, we seek to honor God by living according to biblical standards for Christian character and moral conduct.
