Who Are Warwick CU?
Warwick Christian Union exists to give every student on campus the opportunity to hear and respond to the good news of Jesus Christ. We are a mission-focused community of students from a whole host of different cultures and church backgrounds who are united in the core truths of Christianity. We seek to encourage and equip each other in living and speaking for Jesus at university. We put on events throughout the year seeking to share the good news, and see on a weekly basis how we can encourage each other and share Christ with our friends personally. We are not a Church, and we recognise how important it is to get plugged into a Church whilst you’re at uni – so check out about the nearby churches on our churches page!
What Do We Believe?
We hold to the following Doctrinal Basis:
There is one God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
God is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
The Bible, as originally given, is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is the supreme authority in all matters of belief and behaviour.
Since the fall, the whole of humankind is sinful and guilty, so that everyone is subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
The Lord Jesus Christ, God’s incarnate Son, is fully God; he was born of a virgin; his humanity is real and sinless; he died on the cross, was raised bodily from death and is now reigning over heaven and earth.
Sinful human beings are redeemed from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death once and for all time of their representative and substitute, Jesus Christ, the only mediator between them and God.
Those who believe in Christ are pardoned all their sins and accepted in God’s sight only because of the righteousness of Christ credited to them; this justification is God’s act of undeserved mercy, received solely by trust in him and not by their own efforts.
The Holy Spirit alone makes the work of Christ effective to individual sinners, enabling them to turn to God from their sin and to trust in Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit lives in all those he has regenerated. He makes them increasingly Christlike in character and behaviour and gives them power for their witness in the world.
The one holy universal church is the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong.
The Lord Jesus Christ will return in person, to judge everyone, to execute God’s just condemnation on those who have not repented and to receive the redeemed to eternal glory.
We are your Exec! The Executive Committee exists to facilitate everything we do together as a CU. To help co-ordinate the week to week running of things and keep us all on track with our vision of sharing the good news. We’re just ordinary people and we’re here to serve!
