In the New Testament, the Greek word translated "power" is dunamis, the source of the English words dynamic and dynamite , both of which are easily associated with "power." In addition, dunamis can also be translated "mighty works" and "wonderful works." The implication is not just the capacity for activity or accomplishment, but actual actions and achievements of such magnitude that they inspire a sense of wonder in others. Similarly, dunamis is also translated "miracles" a few times. These powerful accomplishments, typically beyond normal human capability, refer both to things that Jesus Christ did, as well as works performed by God through others, such as the apostles.

Dunamis Campus Ministries exists to connect students at the University of Alabama with the power of the living God.

Come join us every Tuesday night at 7:00pm @ The Lighthouse, Tuscaloosa AL.
