Why We're HereThe Measuring Line
Osteopathic Medical School
Purpose, Vision, and Mission
The Measuring Line is a ministry of philosophical exploration and encouragement centered in Christian ideology. We carefully consider, ponder, and discuss the things of God as revealed to us in his Word, the Bible. We do so because we believe biblical Christianity pours out all the truth, goodness, and beauty that defines, fills, and satisfies our lives—our communal enjoyment of everlasting love relationship with God.
Our ministry is situated strategically amid Wofford College, USC Spartanburg, Converse, the Spartanburg Medical Center, and a couple community colleges. Obviously, we’d like to engage those young adult Christians of these communities who enjoy thinking deeply about life and relationship and how to pursue their lives with purpose toward fulfillment. Whether they have backgrounds in Christianity and may need some help navigating through their secular philosophical college or work experience that either ignores or attacks their heritage, or if they have been newly introduced to Christianity and don’t yet realize how all the dots connect, we want to serve in offering them answers from a Christian perspective.
With regard to God and his revelation, our vision is to assist the search, encourage faith, and understand relationship.
The mission of The Measuring Line is to delight in the joy of our God and in his truth, goodness, and beauty as we satisfy for all seekers the biblical and theological questions, concerns, and puzzles regarding God and our relationship with him.
