Our Church Mission Statement
Our Church Mission is based on the Great Commission taken from Matthew 28:19-20. The Mission of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church is to:
Go and meet the sinner on his ground, wherever that might be on behalf of the Master;
Baptize those who confess with their mouths and believe in their hearts that Jesus is Lord and that His death and resurrection provide atonement for all who believe;
Teach people the glorious message that Jesus came to offer and how to apply His teachings to their lives.
We believe these components are essential in accomplishing the will of the Father, which is to MAKE DISCIPLES

Unit of Scripture: Acts 12:5-11
5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.
7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.
9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.
10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.
11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews
