The mission of the chapter is to maintain a vibrant Christian law student fellowship on the School’s campus which enables its members, individually and as a group, to love the Lord with their whole beings-hearts, souls, and minds—and to love their neighbors as themselves. (Matthew 22:37-40).
In striving to accomplish this mission, the Chapter shall be guided by the ten purposes of the national CLS bylaws and by the LSM Threefold Ministry Model, which entails three interrelated activities to be carried out by the chapter:
- Cultivating spiritual growth through communal prayer, fellowship, and worship; learning to share one’s faith; and devotional study of the Bible and classic Christian works.
- Showing the love of Christ to the campus community and the community at large by proclaiming the gospel in word and in deed, such as through a life of integrity and charitable good works; as Martin Luther put it, “to be as Christ to our neighbor.”
- Addressing the question. “What does it mean to be a Christian in Law?” that is, learning to submit every aspect of one’s calling in the legal profession to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
