Will drinking/getting drunk when I’m underage affect me when I grow older?
Would getting drunk on one occasion affect my brain development or anything like that? I’m fourteen and I wasn’t sure whether anything bad would happen from it.

No. One time drinking will not affect your brain in any noticeable way - UNLESS you drink and insane amount and get alcohol poisoning. Do not do that!!

Getting drunk causes brain damage no matter how old you are. Starting early, the cumulative brain damage when you are older will be significant.
You are also starting bad habits very early.

Until you are in your early 20's, drinking damages brain cells.
Now, you are 14, so drinking won't make you a blathering idiot who drools and slurs your words (although you CAN end up that when you are old if you drink too much all your life).
Instead, the brain damage you will incur from drinking before your mid-20's is subtler. It impairs your ability to control your emotions and your impulses, which means you are likely to wreck your life through unwise actions and emotional difficulties.
"Just like the body, the human brain is still developing through adolescence and early childhood, until about 24 years of age. The frontal lobe is the last part of the brain to mature, and is involved in planning, strategizing, organizing, impulse control, concentration and attention. Drinking alcohol while these changes are occurring can have negative effects on the brain’s development."
These changes can cause you to behave in ways, for the rest of your life, that screw up your attempts to get what you want, to succeed in life, career and love.

Yes. Drinking when the brain is forming can cause brain damage. You will end up the dumb adult that can't think or remember as well as everyone else.

The earlier you start, the more likely you are to get addicted and become an alcoholic. Also, alcohol kills brain cells, and your brain is still developing. At 14, it's not a good idea.

Missing out is the worst thing that could happen. I use to be a drunk before God changed me
! Corinthians 6
9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11And such were some of you:
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
