Welcome to our sight!
We would like to encourage you to look around but first let us start by telling you who we are. World Outreach West is a Pioneer church located in Peoria. We are a fellowship of believers that love the Lord and gather together to hear His word as it is written in the scriptures because it is "is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness". WE JUST WANT TO KNOW JESUS and through Him love one another. We would love to fellowship with all those who want the same. In addition we use our gift talents and abilities to edify, encourage, correct and help one another grow in maturity and in the knowledge of our Lord. We are not about entertainment, programs, extra cirriculars or cultural conformity. It doesn't matter where you're from, what you do. We do not judge based on race, ethnicity, cultural background, income or any other temporal nonsense, we just want to love the Lord and love others. If you would like, look around, check us out, contact us, join us for service or attend one of our outreaches. God Bless.
"The lost world is not so much gospel hardened as it is gospel ignorant because many of those who proclaim the gospel are also ignorant of its most basic truths." - Paul Washer
I heard a story one time that went like this. Ever see a fly in your house buzzing at the window? What is that fly trying to do? You see the fly can see freedom on the other side of the glass and wants that freedom so badly that it is willing to bang his head on the glass, trying harder and harder, until it dies never being free. Ever try to get a fly to turn away from the window and go out the door? Without forcing the fly, it's impossible. It just won't. You see the fly cannot think differently and just like most people if it could only learn to think differently it could effortlessly fly to freedom.
Most people want the fullness and freedom offered in Christ Jesus but don't learn how to think differently; therefor, they never discover, like the fly, how to obtain freedom offered by the Lord in what He does and has done.
