Building kingdom legacy in Eastern Iowa and around the world.

Next: The Vision

NEXT is a bold call to take the good news and hope of Jesus Christ to one of the most un-churched cities in America. God has given Antioch an incredible opportunity to expand and multiply our mission of leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

NEXT is an invitation to imagine what God can and will do in and through us, as we invest in the opportunities God gives us, to make a kingdom impact in our church, community, and world.

Primary Goal: 100% Engagement

We believe God is inviting all of us who call Antioch home to take a NEXT step in generosity as an expression of our trust, gratitude, surrender, and faith in Jesus.

Secondary Goal: $12.4M

We are trusting God to provide at least $12.4M to continue our ongoing ministries at Antioch, renovate the Stoney Point campus, and support missional outreach around the world.

A Note From Pastor Greg

I thank you for being such an amazing group of people that has always stepped boldly through the doors God has opened. So many shy away from taking bold steps for God, but Antioch never has and never will.

In every community and city God is looking for faithful churches to be his light shining brightly – sharing the love God has for every single person! God is always looking for churches that he can and will bless with his presence and his power! Churches that trust God and step through the doors God opens are the very churches that God entrusts with more people – to come, meet Jesus, experience his amazing grace, forgiveness, and healing, and grow in faith and fellowship!

God always has a NEXT step for us! There is a NEXT step in faith for us as individuals, a NEXT step from one generation to the NEXT, and God always has a NEXT step for his church! For us as a church, our NEXT step is the Antioch campus at Stoney Point!

NEXT for Antioch is simply taking Jesus at his word when he said: “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”  – Matthew 5:14 & 16

For all of us who call Antioch home, we have the opportunity to make Jesus famous all around Marion, Cedar Rapids, Oelwein, Eastern Iowa, and beyond. Antioch, the best is yet to come
