Campus Christians’ Mission Statement.
The Christian’s purpose in life (and the focus of Campus Christians) is both commanded in Scripture (Phil. 2:2) and exemplified in the lives of Jesus, Paul, and other New Testament believers, and that is to grow in Christ-likeness/God-likeness in character (1 Pet. 1:15; Phil. 1:21, 27; Eph. 4:13; Rom. 13:14) while doing the mission of evangelism (seeking and saving the lost – Lk. 19:10; Mk. 1:38; Acts 26:16-18; Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 10:42; Phil. 1:27; Eph. 4:11-12; 2 Tim. 4:5) and building believers up spiritually into Christ-likeness (Gal. 4:19; Rom. 14:19; 1 Thes. 5:11; Eph. 4:11-13), and this is best achieved through teaching, training, and being a role-model to these believers by living with or being in close association with them over an extended period of time (Mk. 1:16-20; 3:14; Lk. 6:40; Acts 16:1-4; 19:9-10; 20:18, 31; 2 Tim. 3:10; Eph. 4:11-13; 1 Cor. 4:16-17; 11:1; 1 Thes. 1:6; Phil. 3:17; 4:9) and, thereby, glorify God.
What is the Meaning of Life?
The meaning of life is to be used of God, because we are His creations, in whatever way God chooses in order to declare His glory (His awesome nature, excellencies, attributes, and deeds, 1 Pet. 2:9; Psa. 96:3, 7-8; 105:1-2) and/or to bring glory (honor and praise, 1 Cor. 10:31; Isa. 43:7; Eph. 1:4-6, 11-12; Rom. 9:22-23; Psa. 86:9-10) to Him for who He is (His nature) and what He’s done due to His awesome nature.
My Commitment As A Christian
I’m a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit Power. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of His. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals. I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded or rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power. My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity. I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes for His own, He will have no problems recognizing me. MY BANNER WILL BE CLEAR!! – This was written by a young African pastor and tacked on the wall of his house.
