All students are welcome irrespective of their church background.
We regard both reason and church tradition as being subject to Scripture. Non-denominational & Inter-denominational-All students are welcome irrespective of their church background (thus, inter-denominational) and as such we do not take a particular stand on denominational issues nor do we allow our groups to do so (thus non-denominational). Instead, we emphasize the need for love, unity and fellowship as taught in scripture (Ephesians 4v1-6).
We believe that we should demonstrate the following: In essentials we show unity; in non-essentials we allow for liberty and in all things we show charity. Indigenous-Although FOCUS is affiliated to International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES); it is indigenous in terms of local leadership. Similarly, each affiliated Christian Union is led by a student committee helped by FOCUS staff workers.
