WHo WE Are

Campus Bible Ministries (CBM) is a student club at Western Sydney University.

 

In CBM we’re all about helping Western Sydney University students come to know Jesus, to be followers of Him, and to see change in their lives in order to glorify God in all that they do. We welcome everyone to come and be part of our activities, and encourage all Christians studying at Western Sydney University to join us.

 

We offer opportunities for students to gather together on campus for Covid-safe activities that enable us to:

  • Engage in bible study in smaller groups

  • Gather together for public Bible talks

  • Socialise with others

  • Be trained for Christian service

 

We believe that the good news about forgiveness in Jesus is offered to all people, so we invite all students to come and visit our gatherings to hear what the Bible says about the claims of Jesus. We’re convinced that a life spent following Jesus brings meaning, purpose, joy, satisfaction and hope to our lives, but most importantly everlasting life in heaven with God.

What WE Believe

CBM upholds the fundamental truths of the Christian faith, including:

 

  • The divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture as originally given and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

  • The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.

  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of humanity since the fall, rendering men and women subject to God's wrath and condemnation.

  • The conception of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit and his birth by the virgin Mary.

  • Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death, as our representative and substitute, of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.

  • The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

  • The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective in the individual sinner, granting him or her repentance towards God, and faith in Jesus Christ.

  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.

  • The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Affiliations

We’re affiliated with the Western Life at WSU and also with the AFES.
