What is BSM? How do I get involved?
The Baptist Student Ministry is a Christian organization at Rice. We exist to make disciples who transform the world beyond the hedges. We believe that Jesus is Lord and we want to serve the campus. Any student can be involved! Just start showing up to our events and get to know people. There's no official membership process, so everyone is welcome!
Do I have to be Baptist?
No! The BSM is a ministry supported by Baptist churches, but all students from all backgrounds are invited to be a part of what we do. Our student leaders are part of many different churches in the area so if you want to get plugged in, there are people who can help. Christian or not, we would love to have you get involved.
What do you believe?
We believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God who came to reconcile people back to God. Every person sins, and it is only through Jesus that a relationship with God is possible. Learn more about what we believe here!
