Statement of Faith
This organization is committed to the following beliefs and tenents of the Christian faith, around which all meetings and activities shall be centered:
  1. One true God, Creator of the Universe, Who always was and will be (John 1:1-3; Hebrews 13:8)
  2. The Trinity: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:13-17)
  3. The virgin birth of Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:16-25), his death on the cross (Matthew 27:57-66), resurrection (Matthew 28:1-20), and ascension back to heaven (Mark 16:19-20)
  4. God's having sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross in order to make a way of salvation from sin for all people (John 3:16)
  5. Accepting Jesus Christ as Savior as the only way to eternal life in heaven after this earthly life (John 1:12; John 14:16; Acts 4:12).
  6. The second coming of Christ to establish His new kingdom (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Corinthians 15:51-57; John 14:1-3)
  7. The Holy Bible as the only inspired and infallible Word of God (II Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12-13; Revelation 22:18-19).

Purpose:
The purposes of the CSWF shall be:
  1. To promote the spiritual growth of members through prayer and Bible study during meetings.
  2. To provide support, fellowship, and encouragement to social work students and any other interested persons or groups.
  3. To help meet human and spiritual needs at the School of Social Work and the local community through volunteer outreach programs.
  4. To help balance the spiritual needs and concerns of students with the demands of the social work profession.
  5. To serve as a voice by which the issues and concerns of Christians in social work shall be addressed.
  6. To follow Christ's example in showing compassion without judgement, and in seeking social justice for those who do not have a voice.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of lights (James 1:17).
