PURPOSE STATEMENT AND DOCTRINAL BASIS

An application for association from a Christian student group is an expression of the group's affirmation of InterVarsity's Purpose Statement and Doctrinal Basis:



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.
Doctrinal Basis

Each officer of a chapter of the Fellowship shall subscribe, at the time of election or before taking office and yearly thereafter, to their belief in the Doctrinal Basis of the Fellowship. Each speaker and Bible study leader shall be in agreement with the Doctrinal Basis of the Fellowship, which shall be:


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 worshipping 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.
