Being Better Disciples
Matt. 16:24-27




This is a crucial hour in the life of the church today. We live in the best of times! We must understand that this is not because of the great technologies of our day. We have been told by many of our local and national religious leaders that we are now at this moment facing religious toleration, yet there are many Christians that cannot and will not believe this, while all they need is to look around them and see that we as Christians are facing some difficult times, especially concerning our faith. Considering all this, we still have a foundation to stand on and build our future, as we read in I Corinthians 3:10, 11:


"According to the grace of God which is given unto
me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation,
and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take
heed how he buildeth thereupon."
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

"KINGDOM BUILDING" will be the theme of Antioch Baptist Church for the years to come, for our emphasis will be solely on the advancing of the Kingdom of God. That means we must start with ourselves and build from there, as is reflected in our church mission statement, church values, and church prayer list.

I believe that the key to a program of "Kingdom Building" is that we know the foundation that is laid for us, which is Jesus Christ. So as pastor I will share with you what the Lord has impressed upon me as his servant. Let us embark together to fulfill the perfect will of God, remembering always to give God the glory.

The ministry that we will establish will take a considerable amount of work. The vision is accomplishable as we put our trust in our God who goes before us and prepares the way. Kingdom building is a three-pronged assault on the inward and outward condition of sin in our community. Our efforts must center around Dynamic Worship, Ministries, and Social Services.
