So … why the name “Antioch”?

The ancient city of Antioch was a crossroads of trade in the ancient Roman world. It was here that followers of Jesus were first called Christians… because they were a church comprised of people from many nations, and the Romans could not find a single ethnic slur to describe them. The true church has always been about diverse people reaching across to one another as they reach up in worship together.

Now today, as the multi-hued reflection of God’s family, we continue to talk about how we as worshipers and worship leaders stay true to our roots, increasingly learning how to be servant-leaders of one another. God never told us that the road would be easy. But we don’t believe he brought us this far to leave us. Let’s talk about it.
