It’s time we realize that the unity of the church is a top-tier theological matter.
It is not a secondary, optional, or an idealistic suggestion. It is, itself, an expression of the trinity—of the God who holds difference and unity together in perfect harmony. The church scattered is a witness to the diversity of the God who is trinity. But the church gathered—a rugged commitment of the scattered to one another in love—points to a unity that runs every bit as deep as diversity. The fullness of the gospel is always seen when the people of God are able to recognize the difference between essential and non-essential theological doctrines and then risk overcoming divisive tribalism through strong expressions of unity in worship and service.
- To create an environment where students from different churches, denominations, and ministries feel welcomed to worship together and are challenged to pursue Christ more fully
- To please the One who made us and called us
- To create an environment where the unchurched and the disenfranchised find the “people of God” to be a compelling aroma of grace, truth, and power
- To present both the hope and the offense of the Gospel of Christ to this culture through compelling forms and language
- To commit more fully to the essentials of the faith and foster healthy discussion concerning nonessentials in a way that leads students into deeper fellowship with one another and their God
One is an attempt to act out in truth of trinity and gospel, of a unity in diversity at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.
It is a worship gathering where in we act out the unity of the gospel, of "one body and one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all." (Ephesians 4:4-6)
We'd love to have you join us for ONE.
