UTK Class of 2025!

About Us

Christian Students at UTK is a student group composed of believers in Christ from various backgrounds. We stand absolutely for the faith common to all Christians. We love the Lord Jesus Christ, and endeavor to give Him "the first place in all things" (Col. 1:18). We have the utmost respect for His Word, and meet simply as Christians without any denominational affiliation because we treasure the testimony of the oneness of the Body of Christ. 

 

Our Faith

CRUCIFIXION, RESURRECTION, ASCENSION

These items broadly represent what we hold as "the faith once for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 3) that is common to all believers (Titus 1:4), and we diligently practice to receive all those whom the Lord has received (Rom. 14:3; 15:7). 

THE BIBLE

Christ died for our sins and was raised bodily from the dead (1 Cor. 15:3-4; Acts 4:10; Rom. 8:34), has been exalted to the right hand of God as Lord of all (Acts 5:3110:36), and will return as the Bridegroom for His bride, the church (John 3:29; Rev. 19:7), and as the King of kings to rule over the nations (Rev. 11:15; 19:16).

The Bible is the Word of God, written under His inspiration word by word (2 Tim. 3:16), and is the complete and only written divine revelation of God to man (Deut. 4:2, 12:32; Prov. 30:5-6; Rev. 22:18-19).

TRIUNE GOD

There is one God (Deut. 6:4; 1 Cor. 8:4b; Isa. 45:5a), who is triune–the Father, the Son, and the Spirit (Matt. 28:19)–coexisting (Matt. 3:16-17; 2 Cor. 13:14) and coinhering (John 14:10-11) in three persons, or hypostases, distinct but never seperate, from eternity to eternity. 

JESUS CHRIST

REGENERATION

Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone (Eph. 2:5, 8) and in His completed work, resulting in our justification before God (Rom. 3:24, 28; Gal. 2:16) and in our being born of God to be His children (John 1:12-13).

CHRIST'S RETURN

Christ is coming again to receive all the believers to Himself (1 Thes. 4:16-17), and all the believers in Christ will participate in the divine blessings in the New Jerusalem in the new heaven and new earth for eternity (Rev. 21:1-22:5).

Christ, the only begotten Son of God (John 1:18; 3:16), even God Himself (John 1:1), became a genuine man through incarnation (John 1:14), having both the divine and human natures (Rom. 9:5; 1 Tim. 2:5), the two natures being combined in one person and being preserved distinctly without confusion or change and without forming a third nature.

Find a home away from home with Christian students at UTK. We want all our students to have authentic friendships in a Biblical community.

"God wants to use this time right now in our lives to fill us, love us, and help us find a part of our purpose. Not just to find out what His plan is for us, but more importantly for us to find out how we can fulfill His plan and live in His image."

Matthew S.

"Coming to UTK as an out of state student and not knowing anyone, I was confused as to why God has led me to this campus but quickly found out. Through CSUTK and the friends I have made, I have grown in my relationship with the Lord and have learned to make my faith my own."
