Our purpose is to declare the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the college and university students of America and the world. The skeptics on the campuses are constantly condemning God and justifying their unbelief. Our goal is to defend and glorify God and his government so that every mouth may be stopped and all the world become guilty before the Judge of mankind. Our desire is to see students reconciled to God through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
The essence of Christianity is a right relationship with God. To have that relationship you must repent of all your sins and selfishness and put your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ who died and rose again for all men. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) The choice is yours!
The center of influence in Jesus' day was the synagogue. That is where you found our Lord much of the time. I
am convinced that if the Son of God had come to the United States in the twenty-first century, rather than Israel in the first century, he would have gone to the campuses. The universities control the mind of America.
As go the campuses so goes the nation. The college students are tomorrow's politicians, lawyers, doctors. educators, bureaucrats, journalists, businessmen and corporation leaders. If there is going to be a national awakening, this is the stratum of society that must be reached. The hippie radical movement of the 60's started at Berkeley and spread like wildfire to the other campuses. The same could happen today with a movement of the Spirit of God among the students.
Collegians are at a crucial age. During these years they are making choices that will determine the direction of their lives. They are away from home for the first time. They are idealistic--still questioning and looking for answers to the issues of life. Their hearts are relatively tender.
The universities are communities within themselves. some have over 50,000 students, and also the professors, administrators and staff. Yet, local churches and campus ministries have failed miserably to reach them. It will be a terrible day at judgment when believers realize that the blood of multitudes of college students will be on their hands because they did not "rise up for God against the evildoers, and stand with him against the workers of iniquity." They have refused to warn the wicked to turn from their wickedness and live.
This is the day of Salvation! Seek ye the Lord while he may be found. Most people spend more time planning where they are going to spend a week's vacation than planning where they are going to spend eternity.
