The Agora

The Agora is a small church in Hixson, TN focused on living out biblical principles in the modern world using the first century Church as a guide. We utilize a parallel society approach, akin to the original Church. We follow the theology of obedience, to God and to earthly rulers, in that we submit when appropriate but do not support the kingdom of man. Our allegiance is to God and none other. We believe that the Kingdom of God, and those of us pledged to it, is separate from the kingdom of man but that we are to be salt and light, representatives and ambassadors in this corrupt world we live in without being sucked into the darkness and tainted by it.

The Agora mirrors the meetings, methods, and milieu of the original house churches. We meet weekly as a small group of like minded believers to break bread together, fellowship, pray, read scripture, and discuss biblical passages and principles. The church reaches out to the community through various ministries that all are in line with the church’s mission of living out biblical principles and following the example of the original church.

The Agora Food Club

The Agora Food Club is an association of like minded individuals who desire local, natural food and would like to build and support a local system that provides this. It is a private membership association so it is for members only. They have a physical location in Hixson, TN where members can come by to pick up their food two days a week. The food club has local meat, dairy, drinks, cultured foods, convenience foods, bulk items, and much more. Most is sourced within an hour of the location and all is raised with natural practices which means no spraying, no GMO products, no animal confinement, etc. It is open for anyone to join and detail can be found on their website.
