Bible First, Bible Last

Seeking God Through His Word

As we’ve been praying about the direction God wanted to take Athens Church in this year, our team felt like the focus was clear: The Bible. From understanding the importance of The Bible to learning how to dig into Scripture on our own daily, as Athens Church, we want to spend 2021 seeking God by making His Word the first and last filter for our lives, Bible First, Bible Last. Back in February we started a 90-day journey called Bible First, Bible Last where we encouraged everyone who called Athens Church home to read along together. Because of the momentum so many have experience through this practice, we’re continuing with the goal of reading the whole New Testament by the end of 2021.
