25. BREAD UNIVERSITY SYSTEM: AN OUTLINE
EDUCATIONAL PLATFORM, SUPPLYING THEOLOGICAL LECTURES
1) SOUL-SEARCHING MISSION
UUMISSION(University Ubiquitous Mission) is a non-profit organization for Christian evangelism, soul-searching mission, and social-cultural service toward the expansion of the Kingdom of God. The main goal of the mission is to supply theological lectures of seminary level, lectures of liberal arts as pre-seminary education, and lectures of academy, high school class, to mission fields.
UUMISSION operates BREADTV UNIVERSITY system, a platform of theological education, REFORMANDA (Institute of Christian Thought), REFORMANDA (Online Journal of Theology), and BREADTV, a theological broadcasting.
UUMISSION is concerned with the Christian responsibility and service to nation, culture, society, politics, human rights and ethical, social, environmental, ecological mission to the world.
However, because of the shortage of our energy, the crisis of the declining of the church, that is the weakening of Christian population, we are concentrating and eagerly looking for the partakers to devote and dedicate to soul-searching mission. UUMISSION's educational mission for liberal arts and God’s mandate to the spreading the good news of Jesus Christ is the activity of making a society happy, preoccupation of souls and expanding the Kingdom of God, especially in financially poor countries.
2) CATALYTIC RENOVATION
UUMISSION supplies the acute need of the missionaries and the churches in mission fields. Undeniably, the most urgent need is the educational contents for the training men and women to be evangelist, minister, and Christian worker to serve the church of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God.
MOOT(Massive Open Online Theology) by platform is most effective and creative means of theological education and social academic service to train men and women to be fisher of souls and good citizens.
3) UNIVERSITY UBIQUITOUS MISSION
UUMISSION provides educational contents of the fundamental knowledge as high school level, philosophy and liberal arts and critical thinking as college courses, and theological studies as seminary programs in Chinese, English and Spanish to train the disciples of Jesus, evangelists, church planters and pastors.
The ubiquitous world and catalytic renovation of the communicational system today make us possible to provide the educational contents and the bread of life to the world massively in a way of highly efficient with the low cost. BREAD UNIVERSITY is the name of this new educational system, a platform that UUMISSION is seeking.
All videos of BREADTV and theological lectures of BREAD UNIVERSITY are made intentionally to contain the saving gospel of Jesus. The issues of the Bible, theology, church history, preaching, counselling, mission, and personal witness are interpreted in light of the salvific work of Jesus Christ, the gospel, evangelism and expanding the Kingdom of God.
We cherish the hope that the Lord opens our audience’s heart to the Christ(Acts 16:14), especially those who are glad and honored the word of the Lord and appointed for eternal life(Acts 13:48). The Lord may empower people to be born again, sustain them to live fruitfully and sacredly, and support them to carry successfully on the mission given by Christ through our ministry.
5) CONFESSION OF FAITH
UUMISSION respects creative Reformed tradition and evangelical beliefs, and is emphasizing the authority of the Scripture and the importance of the function of human rationality and the work of the Holy Spirit. We confess that ① the Bible is the record of the special revelation of God containing the infallible words of God and eternal truth for salvation. ② Jesus is the only mediator between God and human being(I Tim 2:5). ③ The sovereignty of God requires the human responsibility. ④ Anyone who believe in Jesus as the Christ is an immediate member of the Kingdom of God(Jn 3:16). ⑤ The Holy Spirit opens the heart who are listening to the Gospel of Jesus Christ(Acts 16:14). ⑥ Our Lord Jesus, surely, is with the contemporary apostles, ministers of the word, witness of the Cross, fisher’s men and women who save souls, to the very end of the age(Mt. 28:20).
