LOVE GOD, Love Athens
We exist to proclaim the gospel through our love of God and love of Athens.
We are passionate about sharing the hope of Jesus in an environment where Christianity is stereotypically opposed or forgotten. Our desire is not to provide another campus social group, but a place where students and Athens community members can experience a deeper community of believers seeking to live out their faith through discussion groups, Bible studies, service projects, Sunday services, mission trips, and more.
We do not want students to come to college and be spiritual spectators. We want them to enjoy participating in the great plan that God has for their life. By actively meeting them within the campus environment, basically bringing Church to them, we foster greater participation, greater community, and a deeper commitment.
We are passionate about gathering together as a community of believers.
"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another..."
Hebrews 10: 25
We desire to disciple students and help them understand how to pursue the Lord in college and throughout their life.
" Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28: 19-20
Our desire is to equip students to go and proclaim the Gospel in their community.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
