Who are we? We’re Christ’s ambassadors, and that means we are willing to do whatever it takes to shine brightly for our king!

At Rutgers, we intend to use our creativity to share the good news with others and give each and every member individual attention so that we can discover each other’s unique strengths and take those gifts out onto the battlefield (and by that we mean the Rutgers campus).
The campus is filled with people who are hurting, addicted to drugs and sex, lost and confused about where their life is going, lonely, depressed, stressed, overwhelmed, the list goes on. Even if it’s just to make their day a bit brighter by buying them a cup of coffee or simply hearing their story, or whether it’s to pray with them and even heal them supernaturally, Chi Alpha will be THERE.
We are the knights of the court of heaven, fighting for our kingdom with a kind of love and chivalry only to be found in those who serve the one true God.
THROUGH SPIRIT-FILLED COMMUNITIES OF PRAYER, WORSHIP, FELLOWSHIP, DISCIPLESHIP AND MISSION TO TRANSFORM THE UNIVERSITY, THE MARKETPLACE AND THE WORLD.
Each of us who takes on the identity of “Christian” becomes Christ’s ambassador – or christou apostoloi in Greek, which we shorten to the first letters “Chi” and “Alpha” or XA.Our name is our constant reminder that each of us has a real part to play in this world.
Chi Alpha is sponsored by the Assemblies of God.That means the AG provides each local campus with support, resources and connectivity to a larger worldwide movement.They also work to equip the leaders of each local XA, both the vocational missionaries associated with each group and the student leaders.
The sponsorship by the Assemblies of God does not mean that you have to have a history with the AG.You don’t have to have any particular denominational connection to be welcomed in our groups
