University Bible Fellowship - Young Disciple Christian Fellowship

Mission Statement

University Bible Fellowship (UBF) is an international evangelical church (non-denominational) and network of house churches dedicated to Christ and his kingdom. Our main focus is to study the Bible, grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and live according to his teachings. We especially pray to reach college students and help them grow as his lifelong disciples. Our goal is to obey our Lord's commands to love one another and to go and make disciples of all nations (John 13:34; Matthew 28:18-20). We pray that God may continue to call and raise lay missionaries through us and send them to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8).
