About Classic City Church
Classic City Church began as a Sunday evening Bible study in September of 2007. By the end of the year, a team of 30 people gathered to build a vibrant church in a great city. During its first 8 years, Classic City outgrew four different venues before beginning services at Piedmont College in September of 2016.
Our culture is skeptical of Christianity—understandably so. Often Christians respond to this perceived threat by retreating into protective confines. Our heart is to do the opposite. We desire to engage skeptical minds in credible dialogue, answer cynical objections by serving the broken, and address the moral inconsistencies in our own lives before condemning our culture.
We offer several opportunities for spiritual growth—Bible studies, ministry to men and women, prayer meetings, and community outreaches. Our youth and children’s ministries are led by experienced full-time leaders who have a heart to see young people thrive spiritually. This, coupled with a strong presence of college students, has made our church an affirming environment for parents raising children to follow Christ.
OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH:
We believe the Bible to be divinely inspired, and thus the only authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and is empowered for ministry with spiritual gifts.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
Church Begins at 10:3o in the Sanctuary of Piedmont College located at 595 Prince Avenue
WHAT TO EXPECT
A typical service begins promptly at 10:30am and ends around 11:45am. Come dressed in whatever is comfortable for you. Sport coats or jeans are both appropriate. We usually sing three worship songs together before hearing the message. We close by singing three worship songs during communion.
We celebrate communion in each of our worship services as a tangible reminder of Christ's sacrifice for us. The participation in this sacrament is open to all who follow Jesus Christ. The word sacrament means “sacred moment” and we hope that during this closing part of our service we will experience God’s presence in a special way.
Life is a journey that requires spiritual, intellectual and emotional clarity to navigate it optimally. God has given us five books in the Bible, categorized as Wisdom Literature, to encourage us through life’s various challenges. In this five-week series we will take a look at each of these books to gain clarity and encouragement essential to pursue God’s best in life.
Join us for our weekly prayer meetings. During this hour of mixed worship and prayer, we intercede for our community and the city of Athens and beyond. Prayer will resume beginning September 5th and we will meet from 6-7pm weekly.
