Who is God?

We are disciples, but who are we disciples of? If we’re honest with ourselves, do we know why we are disciples of Jesus Christ? It’s scary to think that so often we are way more familiar with what Christians are supposed to do, instead of knowing who made us to do those things in the first place.

– Exodus 3, Isaiah 61

It’s Not About Us

Who is the Great I AM? Who is this holy God who has called us into this great adventure? As Christians, we cannot know our calling until we understand and personally know the One who created us. Our lives are meant to be spent in fellowship with our Father and living out His adventure for us. Who do we think we are? This life is not about us.

– 2 Corinthians 5:11-6:10, Exodus 19

Walking in Freedom

If we are meant to walk in freedom, then why are we still afraid? Why do we not go out with the authority of our God who has raised His Son from the grave? The fullness of God is upon us. This is our time to go and complete the task laid out before us by Jesus Christ. Our lives are but a second compared to eternity, so how do we navigate life even in the mundane with heaven as our goal?

– John 14:8-14, John 15:1-17

The Great Adventure

Ultimately, we want students to walk away loving Jesus more. We want each and every student to experience the Great I AM and from that knowledge be compelled to be apart of completing the Great Commission wherever they are at. This means understanding that missions is a lifestyle not an event. We want Biola as a community to walk in the freedom and authority of Jesus Christ now and for the rest of their lives until every ear has heard and every tongue has confessed. We have been called by the Great I AM to do great things.

– Matthew 28:17-20, Philippians 2:9-11

For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh.

2 Corinthians 5:14-16

FAQ's

What if I come in late or leave early from a session or seminar?
In order to receive a credit, you must be present at the session or seminar for the entire duration. If you come in late, you may not get scanned and also if you leave early, you will be scanned out so that you will not be able to receive the credit.
What if my credit didn’t show up online?
Don’t worry. Because there are so many credits being entered, sometimes it takes a while for them to be recorded. However, if your credit is not showing up after a couple days, you will want to email mc.credit@biola.edu.
