Jesus has loved us with a radical love, and in turn we give our whole lives to Him! His presence and glory are our greatest desire and the aim of everything we do. Helping people to know God intimately and walk with Him daily is the goal of our church.

Walking with God was designed to be done in authentic community. Biblical community is where we encourage, challenge, and carry each other through life. At Antioch, we live out this life-changing community in small groups (called “lifegroups”) that meet regularly in homes. Lifegroup is where true discipleship happens as we press into each others’ lives and towards Jesus.

We are committed to seeing our city transformed by empowering believers to impact their spheres of influence with the love of Jesus. We also have a burning passion for global missions and want to become a sending hub for missionaries, so that Jesus’ glory will be known to the ends of the earth.
