It’s a Brand New Decade!

Welcome to the Antioch Church Family (ACF) and to a brand, new decade!  Whether you are a first-timer or frequent worshipper, we are glad you joined us this Lord’s today.  We pray the Holy Spirit will minister to you through a song, a prayer, an inspiration or the Word of God and that you will be inspired to join us again very soon.

At ACF, we are starting the decade with few new enhancements… new starting time (9:00 am), 5-minute Worship Countdown and opening video welcome.  These changes are designed to help prepare your hearts and minds for a dynamic worship experience.  Under the leading of the Holy Spirit, we are setting a new direction for ACF worship in 2020 and beyond.

We are believing that God will fulfill His promise to restore to ACF the years that the enemy has taken away (Joel 2:25).  Phil 3: 14-15 reminds us to forget those things in the past …the mistakes, the failures, the disappointments, the attacks on our spirit; and press forward toward the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus. Pressing is not easy work, but it leads to victory! 

Together, starting now, can we trust God for a fresh attitude about our church, our spiritual family, our personal relationships, our financial support to the ministry, and ourselves?  Can we trust God to transform our minds (Romans 12:2) renew our faith, re-ignite our spiritual gifts and our spirit of servitude? 

I challenge you to trust God to renew and restore every aspect of your being in 2020!  Will you commit to this challenge?  If so, let me know.

I believe that God will answer, restore and fulfill His promises to the Antioch Church Family, according to our faith and trust in Him. 

Trusting God as Never Before,

Pastor R. Mario Howell

Happy New Year and Welcome to a Brand, New Decade!

Speaking of new things, you may have already noticed a few enhancements…new starting time, count-down to worship and opening video welcome. All of these changes are designed to help prepare your hearts and minds for a dynamic worship experience. Under the leading of the Holy Spirit, we are setting a new direction for ACF worship in 2020 and beyond.

Phil 3: 14-15 reminds us to forget those things in the past …the mistakes, the failures, the disappointments, the attacks on our spirit; and press forward toward the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus. Pressing is not easy work, but it leads to victory!

Start the New Year with a fresh attitude about your church, your spiritual family, your relationships, your giving, and even yourself. Ask God to transform your mind (Romans 12:2) and restore your faith, your spiritual gifts and your servitude. I challenge you to trust Him with everything this year! Will you accept the challenge?

I believe that God will answer, restore and fulfill His promises to the Antioch Church Family, according to our faith and trust in Him.

Trusting God as Never Before,

Pastor R. Mario Howell
