Our Name

In the Bible, the apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:20, "We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God."

Our movement of campus ministries finds its identity in this passage. We believe that God longs to have each and every person be reconciled to Himself, and that the way that re-connection happens is through the representation of his people.

Each of us who takes on the identity of “Christian” becomes Christ’s sent one—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. We each can carry Him within us to bring Him closer to the people around us.

Chi Alpha is sponsored by the Assemblies of God (AG). That means the AG provides each local campus with support, resources and connectivity to a larger worldwide movement. This does not mean that you have to have a history with the AG. All are welcomed in our groups.

Our Mission

At XA at UCF, our mission is to love God, love others, and make disciples who make disciples who make disciples. It is based on Jesus' teachings in the Bible.

Our first two mission principles come from Matthew 22:37-40 which says, "And he [Jesus] said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.'"

Our third mission principle comes from Matthew 28:18-20 which says, "And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'"

Not only do we aim to follow Jesus individually and as a community, we hope to inspire others on UCF's campus to follow Him too.
