CRU previously known as Campus Crusade for Christ , Since its inception in 1951, CRU has existed for one purpose: to train and inspire college students to change the world by reaching their friends on their own campuses with the life changing message of the gospel. We want to help you grow in your relationship with Christ and to equip you with the tools to share with other students on your campus. Our mission and goals are to see a growing, dynamic organization led by students like yourself, driven by the desire the Lord has given you to serve Him and to share His gospel.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God’s infallible written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, and that it was written without error (inerrant) in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks. We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. Because of the specialized calling of our movement, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us.
