Chi Alpha is the global student movement of the Assemblies of God. Our Vision states our reason for being:
We are a movement of multiplying disciples, reconciling students to Christ, transforming the family, campus, the marketplace and the world.
Our name Chi Alpha, that goes by the initials X.A., comes from two Greek words christou apostoloi that simply means Christ ambassadors or Christ’s sent ones as found in 2 Corinthians 5:20.
In the Philippines, we are the student ministry arm of the national youth department of the Philippines General Council of the Assemblies of God (PGCAG).
