Christian Campus Outreach Mission
The Dickinson State University campus is a global community of students that will be leading tomorrow’s world. Through the truth that is found in God’s Word, it is the mission of the Christian Campus Outreach to guide these students to a place of “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Acts 20: 21) Once they have come to know Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, this ministry will strive to disciple them in the ways of the Lord, and to encourage them to faithfully serve Him where ever He leads them. “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:” (Matt. 28:20)
The Christian Campus Outreach understands that a vibrant personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, and a thorough understanding and application of His word, will lead students around many of the pitfalls and obstacles that they will encounter in life. We believe that God’s Word is the truth, (…thy word is truth. John 17:17) and that it holds the answers for life and for eternity. With this in mind, we will endeavor to introduce students to Christ and to His Word, “…that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)
Because the careful application of God’s Word has the power to change the life, a student who comes to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ can achieve both peace and direction. It is the goal of the Christian Campus Outreach to reach students with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to disciple them in the principles of God’s Word. This discipleship will offer transformation and stability both for the students, and for the communities that they will influence and lead. Through the principles of discipleship, (Go ye therefore, and teach all nations … Matt. 28:19) these students will in turn reach others, offering hope and answers for life, one student at a time.
