What We Believe

What We Believe

RUF brings to the campus a heart for God, a love for the campus and convictions that are well formed, deeply held and which allow us to bring a fully-orbed ministry to students. As a ministry of the Presbyterian Church in America, we reflect the historic positions of the Church on what the Bible teaches.  All Campus Ministers receive and adopt it as explaining what the Bible teaches. 


AUTHORITY 
The full authority, inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible. The Scriptures being the only infallible rule of faith and practice. We also hold to the sufficiency of the Bible, that all we need to know for life and godliness is found in it. 


NECESSITY 
The necessity of new life in Jesus Christ. Only those belonging to Christ have any hope for this life and the next. 

TASK 
The task of the Church to be the "gathering and perfecting of the saints." That is to evangelize the nations, and to strengthen the faith and life of Christians through the means by which God has appointed.
