Purdue Christian Campus House is a non-denominational church community in the heart of Purdue’s campus comprised of undergrad and graduate students, young professionals, and families who desire to follow Jesus and grow in their faith. We invite people to pursue an intimate and dynamic relationship with Christ in the context of authentic community and allow the Gospel to transform every part of their life.
This happens through Sunday services, a mid-week gathering called Align, weekly Community Groups, events, retreats, and missions and service (both locally and globally).
We opened Greyhouse Coffee & Supply Co. in 2008 to serve the community through a hospitable atmosphere and a really good cup of coffee. Learn more about Greyhouse.
Starry Night Music & Arts Festival is our annual street festival that gathers thousands of people from around the city and features musicians, local artisans, food trucks, and ways to serve the community - all under a canopy of lights. Learn more about Starry Night.
We seek to teach, live, & share the WHOLE GOSPEL to radically transform and equip the WHOLE LIFE of emerging adults at Purdue and then mobilize them to influence, love, and change the WHOLE WORLD for Christ & His Kingdom.
We desire to see thousands of students sent out from Purdue aware of their identity in Jesus, rooted in the Father’s heart, and filled with the Spirit. We long to see churches, homes, workplaces, and prayer rooms around the world filled with Boilermakers for whom God’s grace and truth is the impetus, motivation, and eternal reality of their lives.
We desire to make God’s presence known on Purdue’s campus as a vital part of the Body of Christ throughout Greater Lafayette. We purpose to connect students intimately with the Father’s heart and other Christians, come alongside them in the Spirit’s process of transformation, and mobilize them for Kingdom living.
You can find us in the center of campus, close enough to walk to church from most residence halls and apartments. We have one worship service in the summer at 10am. Every Sunday experience includes worshipping with music and prayer, engaging with Scripture through preaching and teaching, taking communion as a Body of believers, and collecting an offering to be used for various missions and needs both in our community and around the world. We desire to create an atmosphere of worship that is accessible for everyone in the Campus House community to meet with the Lord together. Our heart is that Sundays would be a weekly re-connection to each other, to the gospel at work in our individual stories, and to the grace and truth of Jesus.
God wants to give us life, but we can only receive this life if we spend time with Him and receive from Him; reading and meditating on Scripture, confessing our sins and sharing our struggles with each other, and praying for and with people to experience His restoration.
We believe Scripture to be the inspired, accurate, timeless, powerful, epic storyline of God's creation, pursuit, and restoration. Ultimately God has revealed Himself to us through His Son, Jesus, and as we respond to Him, He makes His presence known to us in the intimacy and power of the Holy Spirit.
The Father and Son and Spirit are all loving and giving and sharing with one another. Community is an invitation to participate in this Triune relationship, and to continually invite others into it. We acknowledge that we need each other, and that the life Jesus offers works only in connection with others. The most defining thing about us as a church should be the way we love one another.
We believe everyone has a unique story and we desire to help each person pursue an intimate and dynamic relationship with God that invites the Gospel (the Big Story of God’s love, pursuit, and restoration) to transform and redirect the trajectory of one’s life. The process inevitably leads to a new chapter in one’s story—in Frederick Buechner’s words, a defining of one’s calling where “your greatest passion meets the world’s greatest need.”
The gospel invites us into a process of salvation, transformation, and growth that comes only through the Cross. As the Spirit works within us, renovating our hearts, we will seek to become like Jesus in all areas of life, including our finances, attitudes, speech, actions and relationships.
God alone is worthy of our worship and we desire to worship with our whole lives. When we do gather for corporate worship, we have the opportunity to reframe our hearts and minds, to assume our appropriate “smallness”, and live for His glory.
God has called us to come alongside those around us with the truth and grace of Jesus. This involves the way we live and share the Gospel, but also our responsibility to and advocacy for the poor, the oppressed, and the broken.
The kingdom of God is here and now. We want to be able to recognize the kingdom as it breaks through and into this broken world. We want to participate with God in bringing his kingdom into all aspects of life and culture by naming and dispensing His grace, truth, and beauty as we love and serve those around us.
