Promoting the thoughtful exploration of Christian faith through conversation and community.


Mere Christianity Forum is a unique college ministry located at the crossroads of faith and reason. We operate in two primary forms: an intentional Christian community, located in our community home called Vista House, and a religious organization on Furman University's campus. By integrating faith, reason, and tomfoolery, we seek to live a Christian life through the spiritual practices of asking questions, extending hospitality, and embracing tomfoolery.

MCF was honored to be the 2018 recipient of SDC's Diversity & Inclusion award for our commitment to diversity and inclusion as shown through our programming and initiatives, which foster respect and understanding of diverse backgrounds and points of view on Furman's campus. 


Summer 2019 - Servant scholars

Every summer the Vista House is home to about eight or nine Furman students and recent graduates, living together in community while serving the Greenville area in nonprofit work. Learn more about our summer program here!
