Our Beliefs

Kappa Upsilon Chi and Keeping Under Christ, Inc. hold to Christian beliefs as their guiding principles for philosophy and action, resulting in Christian discipleship of college-age men. Coming from many different backgrounds in the Christian faith and representing an ecumenical group of believers, we consider the respect of Christian tradition to be held in highest esteem. In that vein we take the Nicene Creed to be our guiding statement on doctrinal issues. Whereas interpretation does not conform to a single set of “complete” beliefs, Kappa Upsilon Chi and Keeping Under Christ, Inc. seek to set a foundation from which we believe and find unity in Jesus Christ. This creedal belief does not suggest dogmatic intention of union, but rather unification of the highest order in Jesus Christ, such that Kappa Upsilon Chi and Keeping Under Christ, Inc. may serve those around them and one another in the selfless manner of Jesus Christ, set forth by God, the Father, and continued by the Holy Spirit. Following is the Nicene Creed which serves as the foundation for our statement of faith:

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father [and the Son].
With the Father and the Son
he is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
— Nicene Creed
