At Independent Presbyterian Church, we believe God calls us to be a Christian community, actively engaged in transforming lives through our living faith in Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. You are invited to worship here and to discover ways to grow your faith, serve in ministry to others, and build relationships through fellowship. All are welcome. 

Meet Isaac Toney! The Athens, Ga. native began his own faith formation at First Presbyterian Church in Athens where he was an active participant in the youth ministry and youth choir. He holds degrees from Centre College and a M.Div. from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University.

The story begins with a garden with no one to till it, so God forms a mud creature out of the dust and breathes life into it. This mud creature is called “Adam,” the Hebrew word for human. The word is also related to “adamah,” which means ground. The adam, therefore, is a being fashioned from the ground and made in connection to the earth to till the ground and tend the garden.

We hope our Christian Education classes offer everyone, a home here at IPC for faith.
