The Four Pillars

Every church, denomination, or ministry family has certain hallmarks that distinguish it from others. Here are four key theological pillars about the Free



Wesleyan-Arminian theological heritage

As a Free Methodist church, Outpost upholds a distinctively Wesleyan-Arminian theology. On the continuum of Calvinism to Arminianism, ‘Wesleyan – Arminian’ is in the center, holding to the scriptural truths of both positions. In short, we see that the mystery and majesty of God’s sovereignty is so great that it includes man’s true free moral agency – the actual ability to choose.



Emphasis on Holiness

The pursuit of holiness has been a central focus since the Holiness Revival movements of the 1800’s that gave birth to the Free Methodist Church.



Concern for the Poor

One of the truest evidences of a healthy church is its concern and care for those who are in need.



Holistic Biblical Exegesis

The best theology is one that attempts to deal with the whole counsel of God’s Word rather than building a theology of personal preference around isolated portions of Scripture.

God’s Word is the standard and authority for all we do. We recognize, however, that there are a variety of interpretations of scripture even within the Body of Christ. At some point, we will encounter theological differences with Christians from other churches and our own. When this happens, we fully embrace the old axiom: In the essentials, unity (Ephesians 4:4-6); in the non-essentials, liberty (Romans 14); in all things, charity (1 Corinthians 13:2).
