Mission statement

To join God in raising up lifelong laborers for Christ from the college campuses of the world.


Statement of faith

Student Mobilization subscribes to the following statement of faith:

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and that the Old and New Testaments are supernaturally inspired, inerrant in the original writing, infallible, and the final authority for all Christian faith, life, and conduct for every age.

We believe in one God, the creator of all things, who is infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, without any change in His eternal Deity, became man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men.

We believe that Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a perfect and complete sacrifice, and that our justification is made sure by His shed blood and His literal physical resurrection from the dead.

We believe that Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where as our High Priest and Head of the Church, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person whose ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.

We believe that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, at conversion baptizing all believers into the Body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them until the Day of Redemption.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Teacher who guides believers in all truth, and that He fills and empowers the believer for Godly living and service.

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam's sin, the entire race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God. We believe that man is totally depraved, lost, and of himself completely unable to remedy his lost condition.

We believe that salvation, with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptism or man's effort.

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to men by grace and is received by a personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose atoning death and resurrection provide the ONLY ground of justification and salvation.

We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept in God's power and thus secure in Christ forever.

We also believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation as stated in God's Word, but to realize that sin may interrupt the joy of the believer's fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of their Heavenly Father.

We believe in the "Blessed Hope", the personal, imminent and premillenial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones, and in His subsequent return to earth, with His Saints, to establish His Millennial Kingdom.

We believe that the Church, which is the body and espoused Bride of Christ, is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy spirit.

We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures.

We believe that Satan is a fallen angel, the author of sin, and cause of the fall; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and that he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to eternal judgment and everlasting punishment. We believe that the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss they await their resurrection, when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord in the new heavens and the new earth.

We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscience misery until their resurrection, when with soul and body reunited they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment, and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated, but to suffer everlasting conscious punishment.

We believe that it is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling Spirit. Therefore we believe that it is the obligation of the saved to witness by life and word to the truths of the Scriptures and to seek to proclaim the gospel, and in turn make disciples, of all "nations."
