Antioch Community Church, Waco – Origin:
Antioch Community Church, Waco was established in 1999 by its Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert, his wife Laura and a group of friends who shared the call for a missions-based church. Before Antioch Community Church, Waco was formed, this same group of people started a missionary training school, planted churches in Russia, Mongolia and Uzbekistan, and formed an international missions organization called Antioch Ministries International (AMI).
In 1999, Antioch Community Church, Waco held its first service at the Heart of Texas Fairgrounds, and the next year made its permanent home in an old HEB grocery store in one of Waco’s most crime-ridden neighborhoods. In an effort to transform the area, Antioch Community Church, Waco started investing in the surrounding neighborhoods through building relationships and meeting local needs.
Over the years, Antioch Community Church, Waco has grown from one small service to several services for more than 3,500 people. Antioch Ministries International, the missions organization of the church, has more than 140 full-time workers around the world and is part of a growing family of churches called the Antioch International Movement of Churches.
In 2011, Antioch Community Church, Waco broke ground on a new building as part of its campus expansion plan. The project took five years, but Antioch Community Church, Waco was able to build it debt free. Antioch Community Church, Waco celebrated its first service in the new auditorium on May 1, 2016.
