IVCF Vision Statement
The vision of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is to
build collegiate fellowships, develop disciples who embody Biblical values,
and engage the campus in all its ethnic diversity with the gospel of Jesus
Christ. InterVarsity pursues its vision committed to these Biblical values:
We believe that every person ought to have an opportunity
to respond to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and to accept His invitation
to follow Him into a life of Christian discipleship.
We will teach and practice spritual discipline so that men
and women can learn to grow in Christian obedience and Christ like maturity.
We will serve the church by helping each person to appreciate
its purpose and by encouraging their activity as lifelong worshippers and
We will teach and demonstrate by example the command of Christ
that we love one another, and that healthy human relationships are a mark
of true discipleship and eventuate in fruitful friendships, marriages,
and working partnerships.
Aware of the reality of evil as it exists in the human heart
and in the social structures and systems of the global community, we will
teach and demonstrate repentance and humility and the importance of personal
integrity, compassion, and prophetic renunciation and confrontation.
We will challenge Christians to acknowledge the stewardship
of personal skills and vocational opportunity so as to bring honor to God
through our work in the college community, in the home, or in the marketplace.
Believing that God has called all Christians to involvement
in world evangelization, we seek to help each person know how to hear that
call and discover their place of maximum participation.
InterVarsity is an evangelical Christian fellowship with
the following theological distinctives:
The unique Divine inspiration, entire trustworthiness and
authority of the Bible.
The Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The necessity and efficacy of the substitutionary death of
Jesus Christ for the redemption of the world, and the historic fact of
His bodily resurrection.
The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of
The expectation of the personal return of our Lord Jesus
