Walker Baptist Student Ministries exists as a ministry of the church in her endeavor to make disciples (Matt. 28:19), providing opportunities for ministry and fellowship for the young people in our midst. Our over-arching objective is to help young Christians to think biblically—to build a Christian worldview—and encourage them to live out that knowledge in the world.
We are dedicated to prayer, Bible study, and fellowship with believers as the God-ordained means of spiritual formation. That does not mean we do not participate in fun activities together. We love to go on outings and spend time laughing and enjoying each others company. It simply means that our first priority is getting into the Word of God that we may be equipped to uplift the Name of Christ in every area of life.
We strive to be family friendly. We do not seek to supplant the role of parents in the spiritual formation of their children. We are here to come alongside parents as they raise their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord by providing them with resources and opportunities.
Our mission is to reach the students in our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that the gospel is the power of God to Salvation and the only true means God uses to save His people (Romans 1:16).
This is the gospel:
God: God is holy, perfect, Merciful, and Just. He condemns the guilty and justifies the innocent.
Man: Man was created for the glory of God to delight in Him for all eternity (Romans 11:36). The first man Adam sinned against God and therefore all of us are born with a sinful nature and all of us stand guilty before God and will be judged by Him (Ephesians 2:3). Left in this condition all of us will be condemned and separated from God in Hell for eternity.
Christ: While God is by nature Just and must not let sin go unpunished, He is also loving and is not desiring that any of us should perish in our sin (2 Peter 3:9). In order for God to show both justice and mercy to guilty sinners he must send a substitute. He sent His own son Jesus the second person of the trinity to take on human flesh, live a perfect sinless life earning our eternal life and die on the cross taking the punishment we deserve for our sin(1 John 2:2). He lived the life we could not live and died the death we deserved to die. He was punished for how we live so that we could be rewarded for how he lived.He was our perfect substitute and there is salvation in no one else (John 14:6).
Response: God commands all of us to repent (Acts 17:30). Repentance means to turn from sin and turning to Christ. Its a change of mind and heart. God also calls us to believe (John 3:16). Believing is not simply affirming what Christ did intellectually, but trusting in what Christ did with your whole life. It means to be completely sold out to Christ that you are willing to risk your life for Him.
