Our Story

Our Purpose

Get to know more about what makes us different.

We want to tell you all about Antioch Baptist Church and how God is working through His people to reach this community and the world with the Gospel! Since the formation and organization of Antioch Baptist Church in the year 1817, God has richly blessed the people and community with growth and prosperity. Located in a rural setting, four miles from the city of Lumberton, Antioch Baptist Church is affiliated with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, the Robeson Baptist Association, and Southern Baptist Convention.

Our Antioch Christian Academy has now been open for 15 years, teaching a biblical worldview to hundreds of students.

That heritage, based on the Lordship of Christ, encompasses every area of life as we strive to practically and boldly proclaim Christ to the world around us in our reaching, teaching, and outreach ministries.

Our Passions 

Get to know more about what makes us different.

"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” - Acts 1:8 NKJV

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” - Mark 10:45 NKJV

Our passions are driven by the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We love to spread the gospel and serve others. Come join us and we seek to reach and serve others for Christ!


God has stirred our pastoral staff to lead and encourage us to reach others for Christ. God is blessing us and is moving in our church and community as we seek to walk in the path He is showing us. The waters of our baptistery are stirring, new faces are seen most every week, and we've even seen one come to Christ after viewing our live stream. To God be the glory!

We strive also to follow the servant example Jesus set for us. On our recent "Love Out Loud Day" we spread throughout our community to demonstrate the love of Christ through acts of service.

Our History

Get to know more about what makes us different.

Antioch's roots go back to 1817, with a rich history of pastors faithfully preaching the Word of God, and saints serving others. While we strive to honor our heritage in faithful service to our Lord, we also seek to move forward in obedience.

We're going through a lot of changes lately!
As we serve to bring others into the Kingdom, we are renovating our buildings to allow the growth we believe will result from buying into the vision God has laid upon our pastoral staff. Much of the labor is being done by our members, as we strive to be good stewards of His blessings.

We love our history, but even more, we love adding to it.
