Founding Pastors Tommy and Rachel Burchfield have been veterans in ministry and highly respected among Christian leaders for over 35 years. They’ve been married thirty-six years, with three married children and two grandsons.

We are forever grateful for their 'Yes' to Jesus. Pastors Tommy and Rachel preach regularly at Believers World Outreach Church, imparting a spirit of faith and a heart of love.

Check out Burchfield Ministries International for a comprehensive list of their outreaches and leadership.

Backstory: Pastors Tommy and Rachel are gifted by God to build; and build, they certainly have. Since 1989, they have introduced half-a-million people to the love of Jesus Christ at Country Camp, their 1,088-acre retreat center in Columbus, Texas. Over the years, their vision grew to include Texas Bible Institute, Young Believer's Broadcast, and now a local church. Decade after decade, the Burchfields stand out as authentic, time-proven spiritual parents to thousands.

There's Something For Everyone

Believers On-Board

Believers On-Board is a repeating 4-week class that journeys through our church history, foundational beliefs, and helps each person discover their unique giftings and areas of strength.

This class takes place weekly right after service in the North Suite at 12:15 pm. Kids are welcome and light snacks are provided.

Serve Team

Serve Team is the life-blood of our church! Our volunteer teams serve twice a month and help bring our services and events to life. We have a high value on relationships, teamwork, and fun. After completing Believers On-Board, anyone is welcome and encouraged to apply for a role on the Serve Team.

Next Gen Track (infants through high school)

Equip Class

The Equip Class is an 8-week overview of servant leadership and empowerment. Together we journey through our vision and mission as a church. By the end of this training experience, we hope the DNA of servant leadership launches more potential leaders to represent Jesus and make a difference as a team.

what we

Believe

Bible

Inspiration of The Scriptures: We believe the Holy Bible, alone, in its entirety constitutes the written Word of God. The Bible, which is both the Old and New Testament, is inspired by God for the purpose of revealing God’s heart and equipping His believers for abundant living. We believe that this inspiration extends to all parts of the scriptures and that they are the supreme and final authority for faith and life. (II Timothy 3:15-17; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Peter 1:21)

God

God: We believe in a person God who has revealed Himself both in nature and in scripture. This God is sovereign, loving and living, and it is He who created the universe and upholds the same by His providence. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Exodus 3:14; Isaiah 43:10,11)

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ: We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ: in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His vicarious death and atonement through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and in His personal and visible return in power and glory. We believe that because Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8) the healings and miracles of the Bible days are available to believers today. (John 10:16; Matthew 8:16-17; Acts 5:16; James 5:14-16)

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit: We believe in the personal present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life, and by Whom the Church is empowered to carry out Christ’s great commission. The Person of the Holy Spirit is a gift to believers and functions as a Comforter, Helper, Intercessor, Strength, and Revealer of Truth. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues (a prayer language) is a secondary experience to salvation for the purpose of representing Jesus well. (Acts 2:4, 8:12-17, 10:44-46, 15:7-9)

Mankind

Man: We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he was tempted by Satan and fell, and that because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is necessary for salvation. (Genesis 1:26, 2:17, 3:6-24; Romans 5:12-21)

Salvation

Salvation: We believe that all men are lost in sin through the fall and disobedience of Adam and Eve, and that salvation is possible and real only through the shed blood atonement of Jesus Christ on Calvary; that it is appropriated through faith, which is the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 4:12; Romans 5:8-13, 10:9; James 1:21; Ephesians 2:8)

Second Advent

The Second Advent of Christ: We believe the second coming of Christ includes the catching away of the Church (I Thessalonians 4:16,17), followed by the actual, visible return of Christ with His saints to reign with him on earth for one thousand years (Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27, 30; Revelation 1:7, 20:1-6). This Millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace. (Ezekiel 39:28, 29; Zephaniah 3:19, 20; Isaiah 11:6-9; Psalm 72:3-8; Micah 4:3, 4)

The Final Judgment

The Final Judgment: We believe there will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and will be judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet will be consigned to everlasting punishment. (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20, 20:11-15, 21:8)

The Hope of Heaven

The Hope of Heaven: We believe that heaven is a real place where our Father God, His family, and angelic beings dwell forever. It is a place of joy unspeakable, where heavenly rewards are distributed for every believer’s earthly service. There is no sorrow and no sickness. Heaven belongs to those who, recognizing their sinful state without God, have trusted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Believing and accepting the good news that Jesus Christ became sin, so that we could become righteous is our assurance of eternal life. (Jn. 14:2, Eph. 2:8-9, I Jn. 5:13, Rev. 21:4, 10-27)
