Our Vision

"Atavist" means the return or reappearance of traits and characteristics of previous behavior after a period of absence; a throwback.

We apply this word to the reintroduction of foundation beliefs, practices and issues of the first and second century Christian world.  The fulfillment of early Christian apocalyptic expectations are fundamental to who we are.   The moniker "Atavist Bible Church" will signal to Christians at home or traveling, that a Christian center exists which is after the order of belief and practice of pre-Augustinian, non-Hellenic, ancient Christianity.
