Purpose

Our vision is to see a generation of college students transformed by the power of Jesus Christ and His Gospel, in partnership with the local church, reaching the world for the glory of God. Students in CCO ministries reflect the greatness of God's Kingdom people from every tribe, nation, and tongue, saved out of sin and death, empowered by the Holy Spirit to live out the public implications of their personal transformation in every sphere of life. They love Jesus intimately, view the world Biblically, live obediently, join in Christ's restoration of all things, and invite others to do the same.

They become the next generation of leaders in the Church for the life of the world. Our communities are deeply changed because, in and through this generation of college students, the world meets the living Christ.


Mission statement

We believe that every student needs to hear the Gospel, to be connected to a local church, and to gain a vision for serving Jesus Christ in the world.


Statement of faith

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe in one God-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

People are created in the image of the Triune God and are called to manifest and reflect holiness through obedience to the commandments which are set forth in Holy Scripture. Because human beings have woefully fallen in this responsibility and entered into a state of moral corruption, they have subsequently become estranged from their Creator.

Because of a profound love for creation, God has initiated a plan of redemption and accomplished it on behalf of the people of God in the realm of temporal history. The zenith of this redemption is located in the historical incarnation of God in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. We confess Jesus to be the Christ of the Old Testament prophecy, being at the same time fully God and fully human. Jesus, through His atoning death and bodily resurrection, has provided the meritorious basis of our justification, which we receive by faith alone.

The risen and ascended Christ has sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in the hearts of believers, affecting their regeneration and operating in their sanctification. The same Holy Spirit has been given to the people of God to empower them for the service of bearing witness to the Kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit brings God's people together to form a corporate community of believers. We believe that Christ has established a visible church which is called to live in the power of the Holy Spirit under the regulation of the authority of the Holy Scripture, exercising discipline, administering the sacraments, and preaching the Gospel of Christ.

We support the work of Christian organizations and institutions that confess the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible in its entirety is divine revelation, and we submit to the authority of Holy Scripture, acknowledging it to be inspired by and to carry the full weight of God's authority.

We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord of all things and thus we are committed to the implementation of the social and cultural implications of God's commandments and grace for the transformation of society and the well-being of people. We believe our faith should be visible in concrete forms and models of personal and social behavior. We seek to be faithful disciples of Christ, enduring in love and obedience until He comes again to consummate His kingdom.

CULTURAL DIVERSITY

Believing that God's character shows no partiality, that God's coming Kingdom is multiethnic, that God's great commission is to disciple all nations, that Jesus broke down the dividing walls of hostility and called His disciples to unity, we have committed to following the truth of the Gospel by equipping our partners, staff, and students concerning issues of racial justice, reconciliation, and reaching the growing cultural diversity among our students while seeking that diversity in our staff.

In 2017, the CCO signed the Charlottesville Statement with other national campus ministries condemning racism, anti-semitism, and white supremacy.
