Pastor Keith became a Christian in 1982. One of the first things he was involved in after being saved was going out into different communities sharing the gospel of Christ. He also used to ride his horse up the dry riverbed of Leichardt River in Mount Isa and read the gospel to them. During this time he saw many souls saved and many miracles. At this time he was working on staff in the mines and was able to lead many souls to Christ in his work area.
In 1989 to 1991 he left the mining industry for two years. God put on his heart to go to Brisbane and start up a landscaping business from nothing. During those two years he employed many backslidden young Christian men and got them reconnected to churches and again many miracles happened during that time. In 1991 God called him back to Mount Isa. He gave his business away to a young couple that worked for him at that time. The business at that time was a very thriving, prosperous business.
In 1999 he felt to leave the mining industry for good and serve the Lord full time. That’s when God had him start as Senior Pastor of Christian Outreach Centre Mount Isa that had formerly closed down. For the past 14 years the church has grown tremendously and the church has been extended to seat 400 people. There have been great moves of the Holy Spirit over these years and many, many miracles.
Currently Pastor Keith Christie serves the International Network of Churches (INC) as:

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is our Lord and Saviour and we worship him in spirit and truth. He’s alive and He’s awesome! It is our desire to serve him with all our might. We are not special people, only people who love a special God. The God we serve has an incredible love for every person on planet earth and it is His sacrificial love for every person that is our inspiration and pattern for living.
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT
With our desire to give God our best, comes excitement and exuberance. In our church meetings we are eager to let the Holy Spirit meet people wherever they may be in life. Some may call us radical. However, we believe that the Mighty Holy Spirit is present in the world and in the hearts of born-again believers, having been sent by Jesus Christ himself. Because of this, Christian Outreach Centre Mount Isa is the most exciting place in town!
The Holy Spirit, is a person, and is here to heal the sick, free those who are oppressed, and bring salvation to the lost. It is through His power, and a continuing personal relationship with God the Father and other believers, that people reach their true and greatest potential in life.
Christian Outreach Centre Mount Isa holds the Bible, and the Bible alone, to be the literal inspired Word of God. It is our textbook to life itself, and inspires and unshakeable faith in a God who never leaves us or forsakes us.
Until Jesus returns, the vision of Christian Outreach Centre Mount Isa is to play an active part in reaching our world for Christ. As our name suggests, we are committed to taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the four corners of the earth, starting in our own neighbourhoods, towns and cities.
The Denomination International Network of Churches (formally called Christian Outreach Centre) is one body of people, meeting in many different locations. We do not believe we are the only true Church, but part of the body of Christians from so many different denominations who belong to Jesus Christ.
Our only enemy is the devil, sin and hypocrisy. We hate sin because it separates people from God. It is only through the blood of Jesus Christ and the power of God that this can be dealt with in an individuals life. Hypocrisy is the act of professing beliefs contrary to one’s character. God has called us to be people of integrity and we believe that by the grace of God, we can live a blameless life. Sin and Hypocrisy originated from the devil. The bible says He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.1 John 3:8. This is good news!
Christian Outreach Centre Mount Isa is an exciting place where you will find people who have been genuinely touched and changed by God. We are a pentecostal church that operates under the International Network of Churches.
