We are all about relationships. We value God's Word, and our goal is to lead students into continual growth in their relationship with Jesus through worship, teaching, and college community.

What We Are About

The Bible - The Standard to Live By
We teach that the Bible is true, timeless, and the ultimate truth for all. The Bible provides the only option for man’s redemption and relationship with the Heavenly Father. We present biblical truth in a way that encourages students to remember and apply its principles to their everyday lives.
The Journey - Everyone Has a Story
We are all on a journey to the same destination. We teach that baptism does not complete, but merely marks the beginning of a believer’s spiritual journey.We teach that Bible study, giving, prayer, missions and service are important components to spiritual growth.
The People - A Shared Life is the Best Life
As students grow in their relationship with Jesus, we believe they will have a greater impact on their friends, school, family, city, church, and any other sphere of influence. When we share our life and our stories with others, life is the best it can be. 
The Work - Life is Worth the Effort
Most important of all is Jesus. While everyone has some idea about who Jesus is, we follow, trust, worship and talk about the Jesus of the Bible. He is most important to us, and He is what we are most excited about. If you don't know much about Him, hang around for a bit. His name and His life are something we talk about all the time.
The Community - Rescued People Reach People
We believe that we must be present in the community, share God’s love and truth with people, and reach the community with the gospel of Jesus.

College Night 

College night meets in the Student Venue of The Bayou Church on most Thursday nights during the fall and spring semesters at 7:00pm. It's a gathering of college-age students in Acadiana who come together to share in community, worship, and teaching specific to their unique season of life. 

Life Groups

Life Groups are a combination of hanging out with friends and growing closer to Jesus. They offer students the opportunity to meet and grow closer to new friends while growing in faith through Bible study. Life Groups meet only during the fall and spring semesters.
