We Are A
House Of Prayer

A core value of Antioch Church is that Jesus commanded us to be a House of Prayer. In today’s vernacular, it is a call to have a culture that facilitates and encourages prayer of all kinds. We do so by teaching prayer as foundational disciple of being a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ and by communicating regularly various crisis, calling, and kingdom prayer needs in our church and community.




Crisis praying is specifically interceding for the physical, financial, emotional, and other needs of people in our circle of influence.

Ephesians 6:18


Kingdom praying is partnering with God in prayer to seek the advance of God’s Kingdom here on earth through not only Antioch Church but other Kingdom minded partners as well.
Matthew 6:10


Calling praying is asking God to lead believers to use their gifts to carry out his work.

Luke 10:2

Send A Prayer. Say A Prayer.
