Our Story

Outside The Walls began as a music ministry with a heart to reach people outside the walls of the church.  Outside The Walls debuted their music for the first time at a Newton coffee house and then expanded to music on the sidewalk, and other various venues. In 2016 Outside The Walls launched a deeper discipleship group for people who did not feel comfortable attending a church.  It was from there that Outside The Walls made the decision to launch a church in Newton Kansas. In March of 2017 Outside The Walls had their first Sunday night service. You can connect with their music at various venues by checking out the events on the Outside The Walls Facebook page or join Outside The Walls on Sunday nights at 6pm at 225 W. 7th St. in Newton.

Our Vision

Building a Kingdom Community where the Poor, Captive, Broken, & Oppressed find a Future and a Hope in Jesus Christ our Victor

Our mission


Outside The Walls is focused on creating an atmosphere of worship wherever we go. It is in worship that we come boldly before the throne room of God, knowing Him and being known by Him, and letting that encounter bubble up in us so that we are making Him known wherever we go!

our core values

Outside The Walls is building Kingdom Community through the following Values:

Atmosphere ChangersJesus changes the atmosphere of our lives when His Spirit resides in us and through Him we have the power to change the atmosphere of our communities.  We can change the atmosphere by making His Kingdom tangible to the world around us! 

(1 Pet. 2:9-15, Lk. 11:33-36, Mt. 5:14-16, 28:18-20, Phil. 2:1-4).

Breaking Down The Walls Between Me, We, & Thee Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, to demolish strongholds, and bring down all the walls that separate us from God. When we trust Jesus as our Lord and Savior we become new in Christ, and now belong to His Kingdom. We are also born into a family of believers. OTW desires to help facilitate these connections and we believe that through the mighty work of the Holy Spirit walls will come crashing down. (Gal. 3:26-29, Eph. 2:13-18, Mic. 2:13, Jn. 3:16-21, Jn. 4:39-42)

Thriving In Community - In community with other believers we not only come to know Christ more fully, but we come to know who we are in Him. In community we are emboldened, redirected, convicted, and encouraged to keep pressing into Christ. We believe the church plays an integral and active part in a believer’s spiritual walk. (Heb. 12:1-2, Acts 4:32-35, 1 Cor. 1:10, Col. 3:13-14, Jn. 17:23, Ps. 133:1)

Reminding Others Of Their Identity In Christ - In a Kingdom Community we set the standard for how to love well. Jesus said they will know you are My disciples by the way you love one another.  A Kingdom Community is a culture of honor. We honor one another by reminding each other who you are and Whose you are. (1 Pet. 2:9-10, 1 Cor. 12:12-19, Gal. 3:26-29, 1 John 1:1-3, Col. 3:1-13, 1 Thess. 5:11, Heb. 10:23-25, Eph. 4:29, Jn. 13:35)

Fighting The Good Fight Of Faith Together -  Outside The Walls is not here to build church attendance but to equip the saints to fight the good fight of faith with the strength and courage of the Holy Spirit. But this fight was never meant to be fought alone, we were meant to follow Jesus (our Captain) as we march in victory together. (1 Cor. 15:58, Deut. 31:6-8, Jn. 14:27, Isa. 41:10-13, 1 Cor. 16:13) 

This Is Happening Now - We are not waiting for our circumstances to improve, to become more educated, less awkward, or for our performance to improve. We are building a Kingdom Community NOW.  (Lk. 17:20-21, Jn. 3:3-9, Eph. 1:3-14, 2:19-21, Mt. 6:33, 16:19, Rom. 14:17)

OUR Pastors

Tim and Hope Flask have been married since 2002 and have four children altogether. They co-pastor the church and ministries together with a heart for the poor, broken, and oppressed. Both  have experienced being thrown away and thought they were forever lost until Jesus came and turned what the world called trash into a treasure. They now want to share this life-giving hope with all those who feel "Outside The Walls".
