This is the official website for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at CSU Dominguez Hills & El Camino College, established as an on-campus organization in 2016 & 2019.
We long to see thriving communities of faith planted in every corner or every campus: communities that believe that to be Christian isn't to give up who we are but rather to step into the fullness of who God has made us to be. We hope to see every gender, ethnicity, major, fraternity, sorority, denomination, and interest group on campus become transformed by the unrelenting love of Jesus Christ.
So, what can I expect?
We love hanging out on campus (when we're not enduring COVID-19), attending crazy conferences, and meeting new people. We also love serving our community and expanding the Kingdom of God by spreading the love He has shown us to others around campus and in our city. No matter where you are at in your spiritual journey, we want you to know that you are welcome here.

Is InterVarsity only at CSUDH & El Camino?
We are affiliated with the national movement of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA: an interdenominational campus ministry active on over 600 campuses nationwide.
InterVarsity's mission is to establish and advance witnessing communities on the college campus, and to see students & faculty transformed by God, the entire campus renewed, and world changers developed.

InterVarsity traces its roots to a movement of British university students in the 1870s. The first InterVarsity chapter in the United States began in 1938 at the University of Michigan. Since InterVarsity was incorporated in 1941, thousands of students have become thoughtful representatives of God's Kingdom and have moved into leadership roles in churches, organizations, corporations & agencies around the world.
The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things,
existing eternally in three persons– Father, Son, and Holy Spirit–full of love and glory.
The unique divine inspiration, entire trustworthiness
and authority of the Bible.
The value and dignity of all people: created in God’s image to live in love and holiness, but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt, and justly subject to God’s wrath.
Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine, who lived as a perfect example, who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place, and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.
Justification by God’s grace to all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to obedient service.
The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ, manifest in worshiping and witnessing churches making disciples throughout the world.
The victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ,
who will judge all people with justice and mercy, giving over the unrepentant to eternal condemnation but receiving the redeemed into eternal life.
To God be glory forever.
