Following the multi-cultural nature of the church at Antioch, our doors will be open to receive individuals and organizations from all strata of life and from any cultural background. Through love, acceptance and forgiveness, those coming to and networked with Antioch International Ministries will be brought to wholeness in Christ.
The mission of Antioch International Ministries will be to:
1. Raise up and provide oversight to a network of churches, ministries and ministers. Through the relationship connection of the network, personal and experiential interaction, and Godly counsel provided by seasoned leaders the network will experience growth and Christian maturity.
2. Interact with and assist marketplace Christians to recognize that Christians in the marketplace can be equipped to have their businesses or profession impact a region that the institutionalized church cannot reach in this age. Marketplace Christians will recognize that their business is their place of ministry and thereby grow with the institutional church rather than separate from the church.
3. As the Antioch church successfully fulfilled the great commission of Matthew 28:18-20, so Antioch International Ministries shall reach out to win and disciple souls. No church is complete in and of itself. Sending and receiving various persons from church to church within our nation and abroad teaches us to walk together in tangible meaningful ways with each joint supplying strength.
4. Equip the saints for the work of the ministry through the working of the Holy Spirit through various training approaches and utilizing the five-fold ministries of Ephesians 4:11…apostles, prophets evangelists, pastors, and teachers. These ministry offices will be available to believers from within and without the network relationships. The goal will be to thrust those trained out into the world for the accomplishing of the mandate of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20).
