The Terra Firma experience is built upon four things we passionately believe God cares deeply about in Scripture, and these key ideas will serve as the major curriculum concepts you will learn about during your initial year:
- Christ - Jesus Christ is the most compelling figure in human history and longs for you to be a devoted follower of Him as a disciple and member of His church body.
- Community - You are designed by God to be in community where you experience deep and meaningful relationships with other followers of Jesus.
- Character - You are called to be a person of character who models integrity and godliness as you live out your faith for the world to see.
- Culture - You are desperately needed in our culture to be a force for good and be fully engaged rather than separated from lives and communities that need to experience the redemption and restoration Jesus longs to bring to them through people like you and me.
These four ideas are so compelling they are indeed worth basing and building your life upon! You'll grow and change as you examine these ideas in the academic and experiential realms and ultimately use them as a launching point into your college experience.
