We provide a place for believers to grow in their faith during their time in Columbus or while studying at Ohio State.
Our Ministry led Bible studies, campus events, and volunteer opportunities are designed to give you the opportunity to serve and deepen your relationship with God.
We understand that college can be a difficult time in life, so we are here to provide Biblical counsel and support. When you are in between the “no longer” (you can’t go back to High school!) and the “not yet” (you aren’t yet where you want to be!), we are here for you.
We are the Buckeyes For Christ - a charter student organization on the campus of The Ohio State University. Buckeyes for Christ exists to uplift and encourage students in the Columbus area, and on the campus of the Ohio State University, in their walk with Christ, as they study for their chosen careers, while providing opportunities to serve God both locally and internationally. Buckeyes for Christ meet weekly for devotionals and Bible Studies.
While we are primarily in Columbus, Ohio, one does not need to be a student at OSU to be a Buckeye. We serve students at many different universities - over a dozen across the state and the midwest!
The Church of Christ on Fishinger Road, formerly known as Fishinger and Kenny Church of Christ, has been in the Columbus area since the mid 1870’s. In 1967, a student organization was formed on the campus of The Ohio State University called, “The Biblical Studies Center.” Over the years, this organization has had a few different names and monikers, finally landing on Buckeyes For Christ in the early 2000’s. As a student organization, we have had a full-time presence on campus since 1967.
“Between the No Longer and Not Yet” – a time in between where you once were, to which you can not return, and a place where you are heading but are not there yet. It is with this in mind that we serve the college and young professionals in the Columbus, Ohio region – serving as a community of faith to uplift, train, encourage, and inspire beyond this time of transition, of navigation, from the “no longer” and into the “not yet.” While you may not yet be where we want to go, we are here to help you navigate this time of life until you reach it.
What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at Buckeyes For Christ. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith, you'll always be welcome as part of the Buckeye family as we all walk together in obedience to Christ.
Beyond that, if you're going to be a student at OSU or be in Columbus, connect with us and let us know! We’d love to meet you and show you around.

We invite you to explore our beliefs and join us in our pursuit of living out our faith in boldness and passion for the Lord Jesus our savior.
God is the Creator of everything in this world. (Genesis 1, Colossians 1:16)
God spoke the universe into existence and everything exists for his glory.
He loves us and wants us to be with him in Heaven forever. (Ephesians 2:8-10)
Since he created us, God has been demonstrating his love for us and bringing us back into relationship with him.
God revealed his will for us through the Bible. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and provides everything we need to know about what God wants us to do. (1 Timothy 4:13, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe in Scripture as absolute truth, given to us by God so that we can know him, serve him and live out his will.
Man has chosen to not do God's will, and as a result of disobedience and sin, has been separated from God. Those separated from God when they die will be eternally separated from God (Ephesians 2:1-4, Revelation 20:11-15)
God sent Jesus to show us the way to be reconciled to God. (Matthew 1:21)
Out of God’s great love for us, he sent us his son, Jesus, to teach us how to restore our relationship with him so we can be with him forever.
Jesus died on the cross for us to take away our sins. (John 3:16)
Jesus is the Savior of the world, and his sacrifice is what allows everyone the opportunity to have a relationship with God and enter heaven.
People need to hear about what Jesus did for them, believe in Jesus, turn to God in repentance, and be baptized to be saved. (Colossians 2:12, Peter 3:21, Romans 6:3)
The only way to have a relationship with God and live eternally with him is by believing in Jesus, being baptized, and daily living the instructions he outlines in the Bible which are for our benefit.
The church is the assembly of people who believe in Jesus and are saved. (Romans 12:4-5, Colossians 1:18, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13)
The church is a collection of people who have been baptized and seek to become more like Christ and share his message with others.
Each individual congregation is led by elders, who are the spiritual leaders of the local church. (1 Timothy 3:1-7)
The Churches of Christ are independent autonomous congregations and are led by men who are selected by each congregation to lead them according to God’s will.
