About Us

Connection Church Athens exists to connect all people to a growing relationship with Jesus. We believe the mission of every church should be to embrace the Great Commission given by Jesus.  Our mission is God's mission. We want to see God's glory cover the earth! We desire to be a church that is focused on the gospel because the gospel is the power of God to save people. Therefore, we have a clear vision to see people connected to Jesus and raised up to be sent out all over the world to make disciples for God's glory!


Christ is at the center of everything we do at Connection Church Athens. Jesus' work on the cross not only provides salvation through reconciliation to God but also sets the standard in everything we do. We want the smallest things we do to be God-centered. This is why we like to say, "It's all about Jesus!"


The Bible is the final authority at Connection Church Athens. We believe the Bible is sufficient for everything. The Bible teaches us how to grow into spiritual maturity, how to preach on Sundays, and how to make the smallest decisions. God's revelation is our final authority. 


The Great Commission will be our mission at Connection Church Athens. God has called every person and church to participate in His global purpose. We want to play a part in making disciples and spreading the fame of Christ! 

Holy Spirit-Led

The Holy Spirit will be our personal Helper and Guide at Connection Church Athens. We believe that every person that makes up God's church has the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we will fervently pray and follow the Spirit in everything we do. 


We believe saved people live sent. The Gospel is not just our means to salvation, but also our fuel to see the Gospel save people from Athens to the ends of the earth. One of our greatest joys is seeing people reached, discipled and sent out all over for the kingdom. 


We believe every person has a purpose. Serving is what Christians naturally do because Christ first served us by going to the cross and receiving the wrath we deserve. Every person has been uniquely gifted to serve God's church and live a life of service in our homes, community, and the world. 


We believe real life change happens in community. We don't want anyone to settle for just attending Church. We want every person to belong to a Christ-centered family so that they are fully known and fully loved by God and other believers. 


We believe the Gospel produces generous people. God has called us to be generous with our time, money, and abilities. We are not called to only be generous with our money or time, but with all we have and all we do.
