Antioch Baptist Church
"Where God's love is shown"
Who We Are
Antioch Baptist Church at Columbiana is a biblically centered Southern Baptist Church with conservative values whose purpose is to assemble together in love and unity of the Spirit so that we can: proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ through preaching and teaching; grow in Christ through study and application of God's Word; praise God through blended styles of music; return to Him a portion of the blessings He has blessed us with; offer prayers of thanksgiving and petition; offer our services to Him and others; build a fellowship among all believers; and minister to the community.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

The Living Stone and a Chosen People
As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”
Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
“The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone,”
“A stone that causes people to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall.”
They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
