InterVarsity is an active student movement committed to experiencing God and sending out empowered leaders who will change the world. Our longing is to see thriving communities of faith planted in every college sub-culture, believing that to follow Jesus means stepping into the fullness of who God made us to be.
We hope to see every corner of the campus become transformed by the love of Jesus. Whether it is your first time learning about God or you've grown up going to church, InterVarsity has a place for you!
Our vision at UCSD InterVarsity is to be a multiethnic community that discovers God’s healing, lives courageously in the Holy Spirit, and seeks Jesus.
We believe in...
The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things,
existing eternally in three persons
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit full of love and glory.
The unique divine inspiration,
and authority of the Bible.
The value and dignity of all people:
created in God’s image to live in love and holiness,
but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt,
and justly subject to God’s wrath.
Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine,
who lived as a perfect example,
who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place,
and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.
Justification by God’s grace to all who repent
and put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit,
who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to obedient service.
The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ,
manifest in worshiping and witnessing churches
making disciples throughout the world.
The victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ,
who will judge all people with justice and mercy,
giving over the unrepentant to eternal condemnation
but receiving the redeemed into eternal life.
To God be glory forever.
