Why are you a “Christian” club and not just a generic club or a club without a title that potentially offends prospective members?

By

We are a Christian club because our purpose is:

  • To offer fellowship opportunities for people to experience hunting, fishing, and sport shooting.
  • To encourage people to establish and maintain a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • To encourage people to serve God and others.
  • To encourage people to fellowship in a local body of believers that teaches the Bible.

There are many clubs/organizations that focus on a particular animal or cause (e.g., Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, Trout Unlimited, The National Wild Turkey Federation, The NRA, etc.). We choose to focus on hunting, fishing, shooting, and similar activities in a Christian atmosphere. We are not ashamed of the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ and that we are his disciples. We are not going to attempt to hide who we are just because it might offend some who are perishing (destined for hell because they do not belong to Jesus) or Christians who are ashamed to let people know that they belong to Jesus. On 1/19/09, the officers unanimously agreed that we should be up-front about who we are and that sportsmen who are put off by our name would also be put off by the things that we do (hold devotionals and pray) and not do (gamble, cheat on our spouses, etc.) even if we changed our name to a more generic one, such as The Hill Country Sportsmen’s Club.
