Who We Are

About Us

"To know God and make Him known."

That is the heart, the drive, and the very purpose of Baptist Collegiate ministries. Join us every Thursday night at 7:00 pm for a time when Jesus is worshiped, connections are made, and genuine fellowship occurs.

Although our Thursday meetings are a big part of the ministry of BCM, we have various other activities we do around campus and in the community.

We also offer several small groups to aid in personal growth, discipleship, and accountability.

Although BCM is a Baptist affiliated ministry, we invite and welcome Christians from other denominations and also non-Christians to join us in our various activities.

What We Believe

Mission Statement - To Know God and Make Him Known
Core Values - Evangelism, Discipleship, Missions, Worship, Leadership Development, Social, and Churchmanship
