The Only Thing that Counts is Faith
Expressing Itself through Love
— Gal 5:6
Encounter a God
Who brings Hope & Reconciliation
We believe that Jesus is living and relational, therefore we believe that learning should be experiential and interactive. You have sat through lectures all week. Our workshops involve scripture, discussion, prayer, worship, and short presentations to create times of guided discovery and personal encounters with God leading to life transforming growth. Our spiritual workshops are open to everyone on campus, and we have a lot to offer whether you've been a believer for years, are a new seeker, or just curious.
What is a Spiritual Workshop?
Discipleship Bible Studies
Jesus called us to be disciples, people who learn and apply his teachings while serving and encouraging other believers as well those we come into contact with on a daily basis. Jesus modeled committing ourself to a small group of men or women to learn together, encourage each other, and serve together as a primary path to transformation. These groups are more than just a Bible study. Together we support and encourage each other as we seek Jesus' guidance for a best, more health life.
Our Mission: To bring the gospel to those outside the church while developing effective, servant leaders.
Reach, Root, Equip, Send
Our Goal: To develop ministering leaders that represent the priesthood of all believers.
Our Method: The Five-Fold Ministry Philosophy
Our Scope: Soul Care, Culture Care, Creation Care
Parties and Activities
ABOVE THE HAZE IS...
Above The Haze is a Boston University Christian student organization focused on growth, community, service, and leadership development. We are part of Chi Alpha Campus Ministry, an international student movement.
We believe personal engagement is an important part of campus life and an essential part of the Christian life. We have a chance to live our lives with Jesus rather than just learn about him. Our lives are transformed, love is expressed, and justice grows when we actively engage with Jesus, Scripture, people, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus' mission.
For millennia lives, cultures, and civilizations have been transformed through God's communication in the form of the Bible. Together, we learn to understand and apply the teaching it holds.
The Holy Spirit
We worship and follow a God who is always close. The Bible describes one God who is also three persons. Jesus did not leave us alone when he physically left the earth. He gave us a new and dynamic relationship by giving us his Holy Spirit as a guide, healer, teacher, and equipper. Jesus brings us comfort and strength through him while allowing us to aid him in bringing healing to those around us. The work of the Holy Spirit is necessary for what Jesus described as a normal Christian life.
God did not intend us to follow him alone. God binds us together as a source of encouragement and strength. Jesus taught about love more than any other topic, and love is not a solo act. It is through community that we learn and grow in our love, acceptance, and forgiveness, reflecting the character of Jesus.
Jesus calls us to believe in him, put our trust in him, and appy his teaching. The Bible calls this being a disciple. Jesus challenges all of us to become his disciples. Our response is to follow Jesus together just as he modeled with his first disciples. Together we aim to be transformed by Jesus as we learn about the new life he offers us.
