Our mission is to Magnify the Lord, Jesus Christ, and Multiply Disciples.
Antioch is founded upon faith in a God who can do the impossible. God has given us a vision of a preferable future for our congregation, where He is the center of our joy and our hope. We can only imagine what God’s ultimate plan is for our congregation, but by His grace, this is what we see:
We see people of all ages, ethnicities, academic backgrounds, political persuasions, financial strata, and family structures joyfully worshipping Jesus Christ and serving one another in love.
We see families growing as disciples through bible study, prayer, and ministry in the church, and in the community. We envision families walking to church from across the street, while others drive or take Antioch shuttles to our gatherings. We see these families eagerly serving out of their depth of appreciation for God’s work in their lives and because of their commitment to our mission.
We see non-believers coming to Jesus as their Savior, unchurched believers reconnecting with the local body, and maturing believers engaging the broken and forgotten with the hope found in Jesus Christ.
We see our neighbors having legitimate needs met through the generosity of our church and the networks of compassion developed to facilitate acts of kindness within our community.
We see hundreds of churches planted and revitalized through the pastors and leaders birthed, trained, and sent from our congregation. We also envision making more disciples through strategically located multisite campuses tailored to serve the host communities.
This is our VISION. Evangelize the Lost, Disciple the Saved, Serve the Lord!
Our general approach to fulfilling our mission and vision is to Go, Grow, Sow, and Overflow!
GO: Reach the Forgotten
We are convinced that we must share the gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone – especially those whom others overlook. We are striving to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit as he leads us to reach those who feel neglected, abandoned, ostracized or simply… forgotten. We see it as our charge to Go and present the evidence of God’s love to them and to represent our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
