Our Mission

Our Mission

Fort Wilderness exists to influence lives for eternity through God’s Word, Adventure Programs, the Wilderness, and warm Christian Fellowship.
(Psalm 19:1-4, Romans 1:20, 1 Corinthians 9:22-23, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 1 John 1:3).

We accomplish our Purpose by:

  1. Teaching God’s Word, its life changing value, and its impact on life (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
  2. Providing a refuge where campers are not distracted by the noise, images, and stress that comes from living in today’s culture (Mark 6:31-32).
  3. Using creation to help campers connect with the God who created it (Psalm 19:1-4;Romans 1:20).
  4. Providing adventure programming to give campers new and different experiences to strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ and with fellow campers (1 Corinthians 9:22-23).
  5. Sharing the Gospel of redemption through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
  6. Teaching Biblical worldview principles to children and adults alike in a way that helps them understand and defend their faith at home, school, and work (Colossians 2:6-8).
  7. Using every opportunity to build a relationship with churches, campers, community, and staff that allow for spiritual life changing conversations and decisions (Ephesians 4:12-13).

    • Serve and love all God’s people (John 13:34).
    • Be in the world, but not of the world (John 17)
    • Hold firm to the authority of scripture (II Timothy 3:16)
    • Be guided by the Holy Spirit, without prejudice to man’s agenda (I Corinthians 2:10-16)
