McGill Christian Students Association
We are believers in Christ. Thus, we love the Lord Jesus Christ and endeavour to give Him "the first place in all things" (Col. 1:18). Our desire is to cooperate with Him for the accomplishment of God's eternal purpose (Eph. 3:11) by ministering the unsearchable riches of Christ (Eph. 3:8) for the building up of the Body of Christ (Eph. 4:12). We warmly receive all believers in Christ and seek to maintain the oneness of the Spirit by keeping our focus on Christ. He is so rich! He is so full! He is everything to us, and He is the center of our enjoyment.
