Intervarsity's Purpose Statement

In response to God's love, grace, and truth...

The purpose of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA is to establish and advance at colleges and universities witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as savior and Lord, growing in love:

for God, God's word, God's people of every ethnicity and culture, and God's purposes in the world.

Our Mission Statement

Students and Faculty transformed, Campuses renewed, and World Changers developed.

What do we believe?

We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell.

The third day he rose again from the dead.

He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.

From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.

Intervarsity Doctrinal Basis

We believe in:

The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things,

existing eternally in three persons

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit full of love and glory.

The unique divine inspiration,

entire trustworthiness

and authority of the Bible.

The value and dignity of all people:

created in God's image to live in love and holiness,

but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt,

and justly subject to God's wrath.

Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine,

who lived as a perfect example,

who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place,

and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.

Justification by God's grace to all who repent

and put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.

The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit,

who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to obedient service.

The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ,

manifest in worshiping and witnessing churches

making disciples throughout the world.

The victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ,

who will judge all people with justice and mercy,

giving over the unrepentant to eternal condemnation

but receiving the redeemed into eternal life.

To God be glory forever.
