Antioch Community Church began in 1999 in Waco, TX with a passion to teach, train and plant churches all over the world. Currently, Antioch has planted almost 100 churches in 25+ nations of the world, along with churches scattered throughout the US in cities like Seattle, San Diego, Boston, Chicago, Knoxville and now here in the Research Triangle.
Antioch Community Church RDU was launched in the Spring of 2012 with a calling to impact the families, young adults, and students of the Triangle. With a strategic focus on discipleship, evangelism and training, we believe that Raleigh will become a hub for church planting all over the world.
The Antioch International Movement of Churches (based in Waco, Texas) exists to foster a network of churches connected by relationship and a desire to love God, love one another, and love those who do not know Jesus through the power and work of the Holy Spirit.
There are now over 30 churches in the United States and 70 church planting teams internationally. A full list of US locations can be found here.
What Others Are Saying About Antioch
"To visit the Antioch Church is to visit the Book of Acts. To hear of their passion, is to hear the heart of God. To listen to the stories of their global impact is to realize: it can happen today! My wife and I love the work of Antioch. Our daughter became a part of the church during her time as a Baylor student. She, and we, cherish the impact of this church." -Max Lucado, Best Selling Author & Pastor
"At a time when many churches have become and are struggling for survival, Antioch has discovered the key to relevance and spiritual vitality. Reflecting the New Testament principle that the local body of Christ exists to reach the nations, Antioch is effectively mobilizing and discipling believers to impact a lost world for the glory of God." -Jerry Rankin, President Emeritus of IMB
“Antioch is built on a foundation of godly character, skilled competence and clear strategy to ignite movements of disciples making disciples of Jesus among the least reached people in our world. Antioch goes around the corner and around the globe to serve the least and the lost. I have witnessed the impact of their ministries for many years and in many countries, and I highly commend them to you.” -Floyd McClung, Best Selling Author, All Nations
“If there were more churches like Antioch, we could see the Great Commission accomplished in our lifetime. I have seen and worked with countless churches, great leaders with great hearts and amazing and fruitful ministries. Yet, what I have seen and experiences with Antioch, and the churches in their movement, is both powerful and unique. I know and trust the leadership and have seen the long-term fruit, 20+ years, from this missional church and the church planting movement God has birthed through her. It is with joy and confidence that I commend Antioch to you.” -David Wills, President of National Christian Foundation
