IBF is a:
• Bible-believing & Jesus-centred
• Fellowship of Christians at Curtin University who understand that Jesus, in his death, resurrection and outpouring of his Spirit are at the centre of the Bible and God’s purposes.
Jesus said that the Law, the Prophets, the Psalms are about him. He said that God's plan was for the 'Christ to suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem’ (Luke 24:46-47).
So we seek to declare that Jesus to Curtin University community so that all nations would repent, be forgiven, encouraged and equipped in the gospel of Jesus.
•To let the God’s word (the Bible, the gospel of the Lord Jesus) speak on God’s own terms, in God’s own way to Curtin students, helping and equipping students to read and comprehend the Bible for themselves, in context, chapter by chapter, section by section, from the Bible.
•We do so prayerfully, praying that students may come to:
a) trust in the Lord and Saviour, Jesus: “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ’
b) be disciples-making-other-disciples of the Lord Jesus, themselves
“having gone, then, disciple all the nations, (baptizing them — to the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all, whatever I did command you,) and lo, I am with you all the days — till the full end of the age”. Matthew 28:19-20
•We do so believing Jesus is the centre and fulfilment of the whole Bible.
We do so trusting what Jesus himself taught: that his death, resurrection to God’s right hand, and God’s message of his Lordship and salvation must go to the ends of the world, even Curtin University
“Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem”. Luke 24:46-47
