The staff of Sports and Music Camp seeks to be united in our submission to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We, therefore, unite ourselves on the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, each having personally repented of our sin and placed our trust in Jesus, and we seek to proclaim it boldly in both word and deed.
The good news of Jesus Christ is that the one and only triune and holy God made us in his image to know him (Gen. 1:26-28). But, we sinned and cut ourselves off from him (Gen. 3; Rom. 3:23). Yet in his great love, God became a man in Jesus, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross, thus fulfilling the law himself and taking on himself the punishment for the sins of all those who would ever turn from their sin and trust in him (John 1:14; Heb. 7:26; Rom. 3:21-26, 5:12-21). Jesus rose again from the dead, showing that God accepted Christ’s sacrifice and that God’s wrath against us had been exhausted (Acts 2:24, Rom. 4:25). He now calls us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ alone for our forgiveness (Acts 17:30, John 1:12). Those who repent of their sins and trust in Christ have been born again into a new life, an eternal life with God (John 3:16).
In light of this truth of what God has done for us through Jesus, we seek to “conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ,” (Phil. 1:27). Accordingly, we will strive for Christ-likeness in our speech, conduct, love, faith and purity. Further, we will make every effort to be above reproach, and to live lives of integrity, self-control, and brotherly love, in both public and private interactions, including all forms of social media. Though we are not perfect, we seek to model lives of faith and repentance before God and others, within the context of our commitment to a local church. We will give ourselves diligently to this pursuit of holiness so that our progress might be seen by all, not only during the week of camp but throughout the entire year. (1 Tim. 4:12-16; 2 Peter 1:5-8; 1 Tim. 3)
Your Ministry Reference Form is VERY important for several reasons:
This must be filled out by a person who can speak knowledgeably about your spiritual life and conduct specifically in the context of the past 12 months. Since most applicants are college students, if your pastor from home has not seen you enough to adequately comment, please find someone you have had regular contact with over the course of the year. While it is preferred that your reference come from a pastor, it may include: youth pastors, mentors, ministry partners (one who is in an oversight position over you), or college advisors/professors (if attending a Christian college), etc. Please do not ask family members or peers to complete your reference. Again, please try to find the person who is best suited to give a thorough evaluation of yourself over the past year.
