EIU Chi Alpha Instagram/Facebook/Email
EIU Chi Alpha is a part of a movement of student groups across the world. You can go to www.chialpha.com to find out more about the organization. Chi Alphas are on university campuses all over the world. We’re a network of Christian ministries that look a little bit different on every campus – but here’s what you’re always sure to find: students who are hungry for God to impact their own lives, their generation, and the world.
EIU Chi Alpha is a community of students earnestly following Jesus. We're not a fraternity. We're family. Our name is Greek because the New Testament was written in Greek. It comes from 2 Corinthians 5:20 which says, "we are therefore Christ's (Chi) Ambassadors (Alpha)." We often abbreviate our name as XA.
Transforming the University, the Marketplace and the World
We believe that campus ministry is one of the most strategic mission fields in the world. The university is a battlefield of ideas and attitudes. If we can reach students now and paint an accurate, beautiful picture of Jesus then we can reach the world! Only 1% of the world goes to college, but that small percentage goes on to be the CEOs, doctors, law-makers, senators, judges, teachers, coaches; the people who go on to lead our world. Likewise, international students come from all over the world and return to their countries, people of influence, most of them never even entering an American home! We want the Lord to help us create an environment for students that can be a home away from home, where they know that they matter. An environment of fellowship, discipleship, prayer, worship, and mission. A place where everyone belongs.
Our beliefs can be summarized pretty simply:
God is real.
God has revealed Himself in Jesus.
The Bible is God’s Word.
God still does supernatural stuff.
God ought to be the most important thing in every person’s life.
