Active Christians Today (ACT) is an officially recognized student organization at Bowling Green State University and at the University of Toledo. ACT has been around BG since 1973, back when we rode horses to work and actually clothed ourselves with long hair and bell bottoms! Here are a few things you might want to know about ACT:
ACT is made up of students seeking God!
We are a community of imperfect people who are trying to learn more about who God is and what that means for our daily life. Some have been believers all their life, some only recently have believed, some are still trying to figure it all out. All are welcome.
We are unashamed followers of Jesus!
We really do believe who Jesus said He was and that He invites us to a new life with Him. His plan involves us living like, loving like, acting like, and maybe even smelling like Him. When we give our lives to Jesus we begin a journey of becoming more like Him; a process we call becoming "Jesusy!"
We love college students! Yeah I know, it sounds a bit creepy these days. But it's so true! Love is a verb better dished out than merely talked about. At each ministry location (UT&BGSU) we offer weekly large group gatherings, Bible studies, retreats, mission trips, and late night taco runs! Don't miss one of our road trips each semester or any of our House Parties! Our alternative spring break trip will take you to places and people you don't normally hang with and will challenge both your thinking, loving, and living. We believe God works in and through His faith communities to bring about His Great Plan to heal the world and He want all of us to be up close and personal as He does it.
We want everyone everywhere to know the hope we have in Jesus. There is really good news today even though the news shares only bad news. Jesus is inviting men and women from every nation to become part of His family! You do not have to be "a good person" to be loved by God, you merely have to respond to His invitation to "COME FOLLOW ME!" Then He takes us all on a journey to be with Him as He brings hope, healing, and restoration to the world.
ACT is a community whose foundation is Christ. Our purpose is to help people establish and develop a relationship with Christ and become productive leaders in God's family.
