The vision statement here at (re)Life Student Ministries is “Know Truth, Be Different, Love Fiercely.” My passion is to raise up and equip a generation of Gospel disciples who will not just say they are Christians with their mouths, but live as Christ Followers. I believe that starts with KNOWING TRUTH. Not just any truth, but THE truth. Jesus says, “You shall know the TRUTH, and the truth will set you free.” I want our student to search after truth in God’s Word, in theology, and through apologetics. This means not living a blind faith but rather an informed faith that can stand up to this world. If you can grasp truth and it gets into your heart, this causes you to BE DIFFERENT. Now, more than ever, we need a generation that will live counter culturally. My heart is to see students that will walk out their Christianity doing what Jesus did, which was to live in the world, but not be of this world. I am praying that students would live a life that is marked and set apart as one of Jesus’ disciples. As one of His disciples, this means we must LOVE the world FIERCELY. This more than anything sets you apart as a follower of Christ. Unfortunately, these days, when the world hears the word “Christian,” they have an extremely bad taste in their mouth. This word has come to mean for some, a people group who are gay hating, intolerant, and prideful. Jesus loved fiercely when He walked on the earth. Jesus ate with sinners and tax collectors, and let a prostitute anoint Him with oil. We want to love the world in such a way, that the very heart of Jesus is communicated to them.
Luke 10:30 “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind. And, love your neighbor as yourself.” We will love the Lord with all our mind (Know Truth), our hearts, soul, and strength (Be Different). And we will love our neighbor as ourselves (Love Fiercely). I believe our vision statement will challenge students to live out the first and second greatest commandment and live a gospel centered life.
