Pastoral Requirements

Antioch Baptist Church is prayerfully launching a search for a Pastor to lead and guide our congregation to realize our Godly vision for the future. As one of the oldest African American churches in Waterloo, Iowa, Antioch has been blessed by God for 106 years. Our search committee has been charged by God and the congregation to seek a Pastor who will continue to lead our call to Kingdom Building. We are seeking a visionary leader who will capture the hearts and minds of our current membership and attract the next generation of Saints.

Our church mission statement is one of Kingdom Building, which interjects building ourselves up through the word of God and then sharing our knowledge with others to further build the Kingdom, as the word of God requires. At Antioch, we are Disciples of Christ in the church of three ships: Worship, Friendship, and Fellowship -- where worship is produced by our daily devotion with God; where friendship is produced by our love; and where fellowship is produced by our relationship with Christ.

In accordance with 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9, our Pastor will accept this task of leadership by being hospitable, loving what is good, being self-disciplined, upright, and holy. The candidate must hold firmly to the message as it has been taught, teaching and preaching the word of God through sound doctrine.
