About Antioch Christian Church
Antioch Christian Church is a multi-site church with the mission of “leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Antioch became a part of the Cedar Rapids/Marion community in the early 1970s. Meeting together first in Cedar Rapids as a small group of people studying the Bible, their heart was to follow the teachings of Jesus. In July 1974 they moved into rented spaces at a local college and YMCA. With dynamic leadership, the church strengthened and grew, inviting people into the new center in 2014. A campus in the Oelwein community opened in 2020. Along the way, Antioch has generously participated in missions around the world. Learn more at https://lifeisforliving.org/
