Clearnote Campus Fellowship is an evangelical campus ministry rooted in the local church. We strive to see IU students come to know, love, and obey Jesus Christ.
What does it mean that we're "evangelical"? Does it mean we seek to represent a particular conservative political subgroup? Not at all. "Evangelical" means…
…we believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God, the source of all wisdom. It also means that we believe that God is reconciling the world to Himself through the preaching of the Gospel. What's the Gospel? The Gospel is good news that informs us that we are sinners. By nature, we are rebels against God our Maker and rightly sit under His terrible judgment. The only way to be reconciled to God is by turning away from sin and trusting in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
We have preaching, worship, fellowship, Bible studies, and social events on campus. It's our mission to reach the University community with the message of the Gospel.
We believe that a student's involvement in the local church is vital to his or her spiritual health. Students should tie themselves to the body of Christ. And by the body of Christ, we don't just mean other Christian college students. The body of Christ includes families, children, old, young, ordained pastors and elders, faithful older women, the poor, the rich—you get the idea. Students' participation in the worship and fellowship of a local church is part of our mission to prepare students for life after college. CNCF benefits from the loving authority and support of Clearnote Church.
CNCF is a registered IU Self-Governed Student Organization. We're made up of underclassmen, upperclassmen, grad students, law students, med students, international students, and more. We're an organization for any student who wants to draw closer to the Lord.
Most students know things about Jesus. But our desire is to see students come to know Him personally through the ministry of His Holy Spirit in their hearts, through the testimony of Jesus found in the Bible, and through fellowship with God's people.
We want to see students love Jesus more than anything else. More than money, more than good grades, more than sex, more than power, more than fame, more than a degree—more than the whole world.
Jesus said, "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments" (John 14:15). A true love for Jesus always results in obedience to His commandments. Our work is not complete until we teach students to joyfully obey Jesus Christ.
