Believe in Jesus Christ as a CHRISTIAN. (BELIEVE)
Join a group/class/ministry as a MEMBER. (BELONG)
Help us make a difference in people’s lives as a DISCIPLE. (BLESS)

1. BEGIN: Attend church (because of personal invitation to Sunday worship, VBS, Outdoor ministry event, AAY or seeing our church building or church sign) and begin making connections.

2.) BELIEVE: Make Jesus your Lord and Savior. Get baptized!

3.) BELONG: Build connections and relationships and go deeper by getting involved in Sunday School, Food Distribution, Choir, Wednesday Bible Study, Awesome Antioch Youth, Women's Group, etc. Pastor visits with newcomers and discusses church and membership. We welcome them to join as members, and to support the church with prayers, presence, gifts, and service.
