"Lone Ranger Christians?"
The Scriptures never call us to the “solitary” Christian life; rather, we are to be active, living members of the body of Christ—the Church (1 Cor 12:12-27). The visible church isn’t perfect, but she belongs to Christ. She is His beloved bride, His precious jewel (Eph 5:21-33). And if He loves her enough to wash her, sanctify her, and protect her, we should seek to love her too.
The University & the Church
For this reason, RUF encourages all students not to neglect the church during their college years. This is the place where Christians are equipped for service in God’s kingdom (Eph 4:11-12). Even skeptics can find the answers they seek as the church does its work (1 Cor 14:24-25). So how do you find a good church home while away from home?
RUF is not a replacement for the church, it is the arm of the church reaching out to the campus. There are a number of good and godly churches in Cookeville and the surrounding area. We encourage you to visit them and find a place where you can get involved regularly while you are in college. Since RUF is a ministry of the PCA, we especially recommend the local PCA church in Cookeville.
