We believe what Puritan pastor Richard Baxter said is true: “You are not likely to see general reformation until you secure family reformation.” Our desire is to build spiritually healthy families led by spiritually healthy men, and in doing so, to provide a rich environment where children and students can be taught, find fellowship, and grow in their own individual gifts and ministries.
Antioch is filled with children and young people who love the Lord and love being together. You will almost always find a football game going on in the grass after church, while the younger children are swarming the playground. The ministry to children and youth at Antioch is organic more than it is organized, but the fruit is sweet. We believe that children are taught and discipled best by being with all ages. We give God glory that we can count on one hand the number of young people who have grown up here and then left the faith after going off to college.
