We had our first meeting of the school year, and it was great meeting all the new freshmen, sophomores, and transfer students. We got to know one another a little bit, to hear some of our experiences growing up as Christians, and some of our experiences being born-again. We also heard about the importance of digging deep as college students, discovering why we believe what we believe. This is not your parent's faith; it is yours!
We will be digging into the Gospel of John throughout the semester. John's purpose in writing is this:

John 20:31

31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

It is our hope that first, College students would believe that Jesus is who the Bible and God says Jesus is.  There are a lot of false Jesus Christs' being taught out there. We desire that you study for yourself and discover who Jesus is in truth! And second, that by believing, that is by placing your trust in Jesus, you would have life in his name. After all, the Bible promises:

16"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

For those who cannot come on Monday Nights, or who would like a more in depth, intense, give and take, question and answer study of the Bible, we will be meeting for a Bible Study on Wednesdays over the lunch hour (11:30 AM-12:30 PM) in the main lunch area for this in depth look at John's Gospel. If you have been a Christian for years, or are just investigating Jesus' exclusive claims, this Bible Study is for you. We invite you to come and be a part!
