Antioch Baptist Church
Antioch Baptist Church was born on March 17, 1986, under the leadership of Pastor James D. Ponder. Pastor Ponder served from March, 1986 to February, 1993. Other Pastors who have served are: Pastor Clarence J. Davis – Interim from February, 1993 to April, 1994 Pastor Nathan Vereen – May, 1994 to August, 1996 Pastor A. Sherman Davis – Interim: September, 1996 to February, 1997; Pastor: March, 1997 to September, 2007 Pastor M. Alice Littlejohn – Interim October, 2007 to September, 2008; Pastor: October, 2008 to present. Antioch attained official 501(c)3 status in 2003 and the churches name was changed to Antioch Baptist Church of Gaffney, Inc. (the name Antioch Baptist Church was already taken). After many years of doing church the traditional way, God began to impress upon us the need to leave tradition and to point His people to His Kingdom, not to any particular “church”. After much prayer and direction from the Holy Spirit we were lead to change the churches name to Antioch Kingdom Building Ministries. Our mission is to point God’s people to His Kingdom and to realize, live and walk in the authority and power that we have as children of God’s Kingdom. We are grateful to God for the service of all of our former pastors and the spiritual advancement and growth that we experienced during their season as pastor. We truly honor and thank them for being a part of our story. Many ministries have been birthed at Antioch: Dance, Praise Team, and Single’s to name a few. Five charter members remain actively involved in the ministry. Throughout the many challenges and growing pains we have experienced in the ministry, God persistently blesses us abundantly. Continue in prayer for us as we “Preach and Teach the Word of God on an Everyday Level of Living for Kingdom Building”.

MEET OUR MINISTERS
Our desire is to operate in the spirit of excellence and to see lives grow from a place of brokenness to a place of kingdom living.
M. Alice Littlejohn
But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:14-17
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
2 Peter 3:18
