Antioch Fort Worth is a non-denominational church located in Fort Worth, Texas that is a part of the Antioch International Movement of Churches. Originally named Christ Fellowship, we were founded in Grapevine, Texas with 13 adults and 14 kids. Then and still now, we meet from house to house with a simple desire to be the church of Jesus Christ in simplicity and power.
We encounter God through salvation, the power of the Holy Spirit, prayer, and a life of daily devotion.
We live as disciples of Jesus and we make disciples of Jesus. We do this in life-on-life relationships.
We live on mission in our sphere of influence and by embracing God’s mission here and among the unreached of the earth.
There is more life of Jesus present when each person is individually connecting with Jesus and then coming together corporately.
Jesus modeled intentional discipleship by investing in the disciples, and He asks us to do the same today (Matt 18:20).
Through our LifeGroups, we live out an Acts 2 community by meeting house to house, sharing meals together, and sharing our faith to live out the mission of Jesus.
The corporate gathering is an expression of the church, not the expression of the church, that equips the saints and engages the unbelievers, just as Jesus did in Luke 9.
We are equipped to do church in such a way that it can be reproduced anywhere in the world. If Jesus calls us to reach our city, He calls us to reach our nation and the nations.
Our passion and purpose have always been and will always be Jesus. Everything that happens here at Antioch comes from a desire to fulfill and live out the Great Commandment - “And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.” (Mark 12:30)
In Acts 2:42-47, we see people gathering together to grow in their faith and live out the mission Jesus left for them. At Antioch, LifeGroups are where we experience authentic community and grow as disciples of Jesus through intentional investment and missional living.
Antioch is a local church with a global mission. We believe everyone has a meaningful part to play in the Kingdom of God, called to proclaim and demonstrate the gospel to the world. The missional church is God’s plan A for reaching the nations of the earth; there is no plan B.
