Stephanie and I have been leading Antioch church family since 2007 and we want to meet you and connect with you. We are a traditional Methodist church that agrees with the Bible in all things, including marriage, morality and weddings. You have come to the right place if you're looking for a church that stands with the Bible. You have come to the right place if you're looking for a church family that gets to know you personally. You have come to the right place if you're looking for a church that has contemporary praise and worship AND traditional hymns. You have come to the right place if you want to begin or grow your relationship with God. You have come to the right place if you're looking for a church that is active in the community helping people with food. JESUS is alive, and you can be too!

God wants to talk to you. He wants to be your friend. It doesn't matter how religious you are or you aren't. It doesn't matter the mistakes you've made, what you've done in the past, or even what you're doing right now. He took your sins when He died on the cross. He paid the price for every mistake, every wrong. He is waiting to hear from you. You might think, "Well I'm not a religious person. I wasn't raised in church". Doesn't matter!
 
Jesus didn't come to start a religion. He came to have a relationship with you. He is the one who created you. He knows the reason that you are here. When you come into agreement with him, your life will be more rewarding, more fulfilling. 
 
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS …

What should I look for when I come in? When you come in the main entrance, you will be welcomed and given a worship bulletin. There will be cookies or donuts and coffee available at 9:30 There are signs that show you where the restrooms, offices, sanctuary and youth room are. The pastor will be on hand to meet and greet you.

 

We understand that families like to stay together when first visiting a church. We do have nursery available at 11:30, halfway through the 11:00 service. We have a two adult rule with our nursery workers. Here is one side of our nursery...

What is the style of worship of music at Antioch? At Antioch, we consider our worship to be blended. We sing contemporary new songs and traditional older hymns. We have both an Adult Choir and Contemporary Praise Team. The piano, keyboard, guitars and drums all enhance the worship experience. Our desire is to focus on God and give God our praise and worship! When you walk into the sanctuary, you will find a warm, friendly environment with people like you who come to worship God!
 
 
What do people wear at Antioch?  Casual dress is the norm. The only one wearing a suit and tie are Pastor Kevin so simply come as you are; we do. God looks at the heart not your clothes. 
 
What version of the Bible is used? Usually the New International Version, but also New Living Translation and The Message Bible.
 
What denomination is Antioch?  Antioch is a United Methodist church family, connected to the United Methodist Church. For more information about The United Methodist Church, please go to www.umc.org. 
 
Are you stressed out, depressed, lonely, with no one to talk to? Please feel free to call the pastor at the church office Tuesdays thru Fridays between 9 a.m. to 3:00. Don't suffer in silence. You are not alone.
 
 
Are you ready to develop your relationship with God? God loves you and wants to have a relationship with you that lasts throughout eternity. The Bible says, "the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life though Christ our Lord." In other words, we're all on an airplane that's going down, and if you put on the parachute and take a leap of faith, you will miss the crash of the plane. In the same way, we're all going to die one day, and if you open your heart to the Lord Jesus Christ, you won't perish (John 3:16) but you will have everlasting life.
 
Prayer of Salvation: "Dear God, I believe in You. You believe in me. I believe Jesus is the Son of God, that He took away my sins. I'm sorry for the things I've done that hurt You and hurt others. Forgive me for all my sins. Write my name in Your Book of Life. I confess Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Thank You that I am saved and forgiven! In Jesus' Name, Amen."

If you prayed the Prayer of Salvation, we would love to hear from you! Call us at (417) 833-6171
