We promote authentic relationships and redemptive communities marked by God’s grace and truth. Learn more about how to live out the gospel of Jesus in relationships with others.

Missional communities are incarnational, evangelistic, and apostolic. These three characteristics, and their implications, are defined for InterVarsity leaders and chapters.

Incarnational ministry describes how we follow Jesus by living out the gospel in the physical, social, and cultural realities the world around us to reveal God's power and love.

We use the term "evangelistic" to describe an awareness that the missional community does not merely exist for those who already believe, but invites skeptics and seekers to investigate and experience God and begin to follow Jesus.

We use the term "apostolic" to describe InterVarsity's missional communities and leaders that are sent out to plant the gospel in unengaged areas or people groups in order to establish new communities of Jesus-followers.

Thoughts of the victorious life of a lone believer are replaced by appreciation for perseverance, faith, community and the sovereignty of God.
