The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind
2 Tim. 3:15-17
There is only One True God revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son Jesus was both human and divine
Matt. 1:23; Hebrew 7:26; 1Cor. 15:3-5; Phil. 2:9-11
Though originally good, Man Willingly Fell to Sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world
Every Person Can Have Restored Fellowship with God Through ‘Salvation’ trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior
And practice two ordinances—
(1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation
2) Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation
1 Corinthians 11:26
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a Special Experience Following Salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times
The Initial Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘Speaking in Tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles
Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike
The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe ‘the Church’ is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ
A Divinely Called and Scripturally Ordained Leadership Ministry Serves the Church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church and to Meet human need with ministries of love and compassion
Divine Healing of the Sick is a Privilege for Christians Today and is provided for in Christ’s atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins)
In The Blessed Hope—When Jesus Raptures His Church Prior to His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever
1 Thessalonians 4:16,17
In The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace
A Final Judgment Will Take Place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire
And look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. ‘And so shall we forever be with the Lord!'
2 Peter 3:13
PILLARS OF CHI ALPHA
Real Devotional Life-- We hope every student would have a vibrant, personal relationship with God. We believe a real devotional life is necessary to maintain a solid relationship with God. Through spending time in the Bible, and communicating with God frequently, we can experience God and the life He designed for us to have.
Real Community-- Small groups are how we do life in Chi Alpha and the most important part of your experience with us. The greatest transformation in life occurs when we are living in real community with friends who are following Christ. To find a small group, click HERE .
Real Responsibility-- We believe that every Christian has a responsibility and should play a role in global missions, relational evangelism, and social justice. In Chi Alpha, we provide students with opportunities to serve on all levels.
