Two16 Baptist Collegiate Ministry is a Christian organization working with college students from the College of Charleston, the Citadel, Trident Tech, the American College of Building Arts and Charleston Southern University.
The name "Two16" comes from our address, 216 Calhoun Street, and also Galatians 2:16, where we see that we are "justified by faith in Christ and not works of the law," which we affirm and teach.
Our citywide college community lives by the mission statement "Learning and Living Grace and Truth" which contains two main elements:
1. "Learning and Living" is how we define a disciple: someone who learns what Jesus says and lives it (Ezra 7:10).
2. "Grace and Truth" is how we define love. As disciples of Jesus, we follow his example of being bold with truth, but generous with grace (John 1:14). We believe truth without grace destroys, grace without truth deceives, but truth and grace together result in true and genuine love.
