Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship at Yale is a group of students earnestly following Jesus. Our name comes from the Greek for Christ’s Apostles though we’re not a frat….we’re a community of brothers and sisters living for Jesus at Yale. Our beliefs can be summarized simply: God is real. God has revealed Himself in Jesus. The Bible is God’s word. God is still moving today. God ought to be the most important thing in every person’s life.
These beliefs can be described as orthodox, Protestant, and Pentecostal. By orthodox, we mean that we affirm the historic declarations of the Christian faith: specifically the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed. By Protestant, we mean that we believe the Bible is trustworthy and we believe that faith requires personal commitment – no one is born a Christian. By Pentecostal, we mean that we believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit includes miracles, and this is an important part of the life of the church. We’re sponsored by the Assemblies of God, the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination (although we welcome students from all backgrounds).

Life Groups meet to talk about community, the story of Christ, and what this thing called “life” is all about. It’s a great opportunity to dive deep into scripture and learn how we can love and live in a whole new way; of being with friends old and new; making a difference in the lives of those around us; and preparing to be a Jesus follower wherever we go in life! Life groups meet in colleges - email us to find out where and when.
Retreats are offered each semester and allow you to get away, listen to God in stillness and solitude, and have others speak in to your lives. E-mail us for more details.
