What is revive?
Revive is an evangelical young adult ministry to southern Brazoria County. Revive started in May 2010. Now, more than eight years later, our mission remains the same: we desire to fulfill the great commission of Jesus Christ by calling lost young adults to turn towards Jesus and saved young adults to grow closer to Jesus.
We accomplish our mission by providing a bible study on the campus of Brazosport College in partnership with Revive.BC, an on-campus student organization, where we promote fellowship, worship, service, and discipleship through the study of God's word.
While Revive is not affiliated with any particular church or denomination, we partner with dozens of churches and ministries throughout Brazoria County. Revive regularly brings in area pastors to speak at our gatherings and encourages all young adults attending Revive to become active members of local evangelical churches.
When and where does revive meet?
Revive.BC hosts Revive on the campus of Brazosport College in the student pavilion during each academic semester. In the fall and spring, we meet weekly on Thursday nights from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM. In the summer, we meet every other week at the same time. More details about our gatherings can be found on our Facebook Page and on our Calendar.

what does revive believe and teach?
Revive is an evangelical ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe in and teach what the Bible, God's word, says about God, humanity, and our need for salvation by faith in Jesus Christ in accordance with our belief statement set forth below.
The Inerrancy of Scripture: The Bible is God’s written revelation to mankind, completely true, without error in original form, instructive and authoritative in all areas of faith and practice. (John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
The Trinity: God eternally exists as one God in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity is fully and completely God, sharing all of the divine attributes in a perfect community. (Matthew 28:19; John 1:14; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 1:4-6).
Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ is the perfect revelation of God to humankind. He is fully God and fully man. After voluntarily coming to earth and living a sinless life, He died on the cross as the substitute for humanity’s sin. His resurrection from the grave affirms His victory over sin and death. (Matthew 1:18-2:12; John 1:1-18; Romans 3:21-26; 1 Corinthians 12; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 1:15-23; Hebrews 1:1-13; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 1:1-2:2).
The Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit permanently indwells within all believers at the time of salvation and guides them in the journey to become like Christ. (John 14:15-26; Acts 2:1-33; Romans 8:1-27; Galatians 5:16-23; 1 John 2:20-27).
Grace: God created humans, both male and female, in His perfect image. Because of its rebellion, however, all humanity is alienated from God. As a result, humans are incapable of having a relationship with God based solely upon their effort or works. (Genesis 1:26-31; Romans 3:10-18; Ephesians 2:1-3); and,
Salvation: All who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Lord and Savior will receive the forgiveness of sins and the free gift of eternal life. (John 3:16, 6:35-40, 10:27-30; Romans 8:28-39; Philippians 1:6, 2 Timothy 2:13; 1 Peter 1: 3-9; 1 John 5:11-13).
