WHO WE ARE
Southwestern Christian Fellowship (SCF) is a CHRIST-CENTERED registered student organization at UT Southwestern Medical Center and has existed on the UT Southwestern campus for 25+ years.
We are a partnership between Baptist Student Ministries (BSM) and the Christian Medical and Dental Association (CMDA). Although affiliated with Baptist Student Ministries, you do not have to be Baptist to participate in our activities. All are welcome regardless of denomination or religious beliefs. We as an organization believe that partnership is more effective than having two groups with the same mission and vision. Together the BSM and CMDA sponsor weekly lunches, provide a local campus director, and organize community outreach including mission trips for all participating members.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, as stated in Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
We believe in one God who created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). He designed men and women to be in perfect relationship with Him. However, this relationship was fractured when sin entered the world through humankind's rebellion against God (Genesis 3). Now, all of us experience the world's brokenness in our relationships with God and with one another (Romans 3:23). But God demonstrates His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
Jesus, the Son of God, lived the perfect life and took the punishment for humanity's sins when He died on the cross. He was resurrected and sits at the right hand of God, and by believing He is Lord and that God raised Him from the dead we can have eternal life (Romans 10:9).
We are Christians not because of what we have done, but because of our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. We have hope in knowing He will return to reconcile all things to Himself (Colossians 1:20) and creation will finally be made right as God will dwell with His people (Revelation 21).
