Antioch Bible Church is a Bible-teaching, God-centred, gospel-driven, disciple-making, outward-looking church in the north of Johannesburg in South Africa.
In the book of Acts, the Antioch church (in modern-day Turkey) replaced Jerusalem as the centre of Christian activity, the birthplace of foreign missions, the gateway to the ends of the earth, the heart of the unfolding gospel story, and a thriving hub of gospel energy that blessed the nations.
The Antioch church of the Bible was an evangelistic church (Acts 11:19–24); an encouraging church (Acts 11:23–24); a teaching church (Acts 11:25–26; cf. 15:32, 35); a Christ-centred church (Acts 11:26); a serving church (Acts 11:27–30); a truth-loving church (Acts 13:1, 2b; 15:1–3); a worshipping church (Acts 13:2a); a sending and missionary church (Acts 13:3–4, 14:26–27); a unified church amidst ethnic diversity (Acts 13:1, etc.); and a joyful church (Acts 11:23; 15:3, 31).
In other words, the early Antioch church was a Perfect 10—an outstanding example for us to follow here in our Antioch to which God has called us in this large city of Johannesburg. Not only is Antioch a model for us to follow, but it is also our mother church. Who of us would be here today were it not for the Antioch church from which the gospel went west into Europe and from there to us? We owe our very spiritual existence to this one church as a mighty tool God used to bring us from spiritual darkness and into His glorious light.
