The Winshape College Program exists to
Cultivate college students who will develop disciples, create community, and launch leaders to impact every generation.
I Corinthians 11:1 – "Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ."
We believe that our most important goal is following Jesus Christ and demonstrating His supremacy in all things (Col. 1:15-18). Only by following Him do we have the God-ordained authority to lead others into His purposes.
Proverbs 11:3 – "The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity."
We believe that integrity, at its core, means a person is fully integrated and without duplicity, so that his or her thoughts, words and actions all agree with one another. For a Christian, this means we’re guided by the Holy Spirit and therefore under-girded by integrity in all our decisions.
I Peter 4:10 – "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms."
Based on the example of Christ (John 13:15-16), who served us to the point of death (Phil. 2:5-11), we believe God calls each person to a life of service. For this reason, God has given each person natural and spiritual gifts that are to be used to serve others and subsequently give God’s grace to them. We must faithfully and diligently discover and use our gifts in order to serve others.
John 17:22-23 – "[Jesus prayed to the Father,] I have given [my followers] the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me."
We believe that the greatest method for displaying Christ’s supremacy is showing love for one another through unity. This is perfectly displayed by God the Father’s love for His Son and adopted children. Though we will not agree on everything, we strive to be united in a common love for Jesus and a continual desire to please Him.
