Aletheia Church

Aletheia Church, an Evangelical collegiate church that serves as a church planting hub for other churches under the same name, was started in 2001 in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The name of the church, Aletheia, is in reference to the Greek word aletheia ( _gr. ἀλήθεια), literally meaning "the state of not being hidden; the state of being evident".
