Auto Racing Outreach was founded in 2001 in while we served as Baptist missionaries in Nova Scotia, Canada. ARO first ministered in the Maritime Pro Stock Tour of eastern Canada where Greg served as chaplian for five years. In 2007 Auto Racing Outreach was moved to Hickory, North Carolina to serve with the Pro All Stars Series (PASS South series) and to begin race fan ministry at various NASCAR tracks, local tracks, churches, and charitable events.
The primary focus of ARO is to lift up the Lord Jesus Christ and to proclaim the gospel message of salvation through Christ alone to the millions in motorsports.
In just the past few years the Lord has blessed with hundreds accepting Christ as their Savior, and others being reclaimed for Christ and placed in good, Bible-believing churches.
Thousands of gospel tracts, New Testaments, and pieces of gospel literature have been sown.
Will you prayerfully consider supporting ARO in its mission to proclaim the gospel message across the country and around the world?
Statement of Faith and Beliefs
We believe in the inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments. We believe it is the inerrant Word of God. It is both preserved and practical for all doctrine and manner of living today (II Tim. 3:16-17, II Pet. 1:21).
We believe that God exists in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. All three are equally God and eternal (Gen. 1:1, Ps. 104:24-30).
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe that He is both completely God and completely man in His incarnation. We believe that He is eternal in that he has always existed as God and with God. He took upon Himself the form of a man in His incarnation when He came to earth. We believe in the virgin birth (Isa. 7:14). By His shed blood on the cross he died to purge the sins of all who by faith accept Him as Savior (Acts 26:18, Heb. 9:22). We believe that He resurrected from the tomb in power and is now seated at the right hand of the Father as our Advocate (I John 2:10). He is coming again to establish His reign for all eternity (Rev. 22:20, I Tim. 6:15-16).
We believe the Biblical account of creation took place in six literal 24 hour days. We do not hold to any form of the theory of evolution (Gen. 1-2, Ps. 148:3-5, Acts. 17:24).
We believe that all men, women, and children are born sinners and are sinners by choice (Rom. 3:23). There is a penalty for sin which is death and eternal damnation (Rom. 6:23). There is only one way of salvation, and that is through Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. Christ died for our sins to pay sin’s penalty. All those that will call upon Him, turn from their sins, and trust Him as Savior are saved and forgiven. Salvation is by faith through grace, and not of any works of our own ( John 3:16, Eph. 2:8-9).
We believe that those that are saved are saved eternally because salvation is not man’s work, but God’s work. When a person repents of their sin and accepts Christ as Savior the Holy Spirit dwells in them and is the seal of God’s redemption (John 1:12-13, Rom. 8:16, Eph. 1:13).
