What is ΑΓΩ?
Alpha Gamma Omega is a National Christ-Centered social fraternity that started at UCLA in 1927.
Where is ΑΓΩ?
We currently have chapters at universities in California, Colorado, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. And we’re expanding!
Why does ΑΓΩ exist?
Be Disciples. Make Disciples. Together. That’s our mission.
70% of Christian men fall away from their faith when they transition from high school to college.
AΓΩ acts as a bridge. We maintain and build up guys’ relationship with God in the context of our close-knit brotherhood.
The fraternity structure helps us develop leaders and forge strong bonds with one another, which we leverage to seek first God’s glory.
While always acting within the parameter’s of the Great Commandment (Matt. 22:36-39) to love God and love others, we seek to contribute to the fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20) to make disciples of all nations.
Our first purpose is To win others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Our sixth (and final) purpose is To deepen the spiritual lives of the members. These two purposes are the bookends for our organization and the context in which our brotherhood best glorifies God.
We aim to develop fully mature men of God – men who have made Jesus Christ the Lord (or boss) of every area of life, continually growing in their wholehearted love for Him and following Him in their academic pursuits, career aspirations, financial decisions, social settings, leisure activities, friendships, families, and romantic relationships. Every. Area. Of. Life.
We develop men in this way to be courageous leaders who impact the collegiate communities they live in. They are trained to carry their faith everywhere they go, sharing the life-changing gospel in love with peers in the classroom, workplace, and in other spheres of life.
As a social fraternity on college campuses, our Christ-Centered brotherhood seeks to know, love, and glorify God and be used by Him to establish, equip, and encourage lifelong followers of God.

I hereby publicly confess my belief in the Lord Jesus Christ as God and only Savior and give witness to the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit in my life. I will make it a purpose of my life to continue in fellowship with God through prayer and the reading of the Holy Scriptures.
Significance of the Fraternity Letters
Alpha and Omega represent the sovereign majesty of God and His dominion and lordship over all things. These letters come from the book of Revelation, where Jesus Christ says, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” The letter Gamma is the third letter in the Greek alphabet, like “C” in our alphabet. It represents Christ, who is the center and foundation of our fraternity.
