About BCM Christian Community
What is BCM?
BCM is a student organization whose purpose is to reach unChristian students with the Gospel of Christ, connect students to local churches, and to strengthen the walk of those who are passionately following Christ. We accomplish these things through worshiping together, building community in Journey Groups, and serving together on campus, in the community, and around the world.
Do I have to be apart of a specific denomination?
NO! BCM Christian Community is graciously funded by local Baptist churches but you don’t have to be Baptist or any denomination. Our students come from various denomination or non-denominational backgrounds. We are a community to loves Jesus and is called to make disciples who make disciples on college and university campuses in New Orleans.
Where do you meet?
Tulane & Loyola Students can join us at the BCM House located at 7111 Freret St.
Our ministries at all other NOLA campuses meet on campus in various rooms and buildings. Please refer to your campus’ page on our website to find out where our events are held.
I am really into missions, can BCM help me?
YES! Each year BCMs across the state hundreds of student missionaries out to different countries for short-term mission projects. You can click on the missions link at the top of the page to learn more.
Our Mission: BCM exists to empower and equip college students to make disciples who make disciples through the study of scripture, prayer, accountable relationships, and missional living.
Our Core Values:
The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to humanity. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. We believe that its message is relevant today and by pursuing a relationship with the Author and others as laid out in it, you can experience a fulfilling and purposeful life.
No one should live life alone. At the BCM we value people and we want to journey with you through life. Here you will find people who will celebrate with you in the good times and encourage you through the hard times. We believe that growth happens in community, and therefore, we believe in encouraging one another to live with purpose and intentionality- to each day strive to love God and love others more.
Each person has been created with a purpose and thus, significance. We desire to be people who enjoy living purposefully in our everyday lives. After all, “faith without works is dead” (James 2:26b), and so we desire to be people who live out our Christianity and not just talk about it.
