Pastor Eric Hill, Antioch Baptist Church

Hello Centralia and the surrounding areas;

I would like to give you an update on what the Lord is doing at Antioch Baptist Church and invite you to come and worship with us.

On April the second 2023, we had a Cross Dedication and the Lord Supper at 10:45 am. What a wonderful time to remember what our Savior did for us.

On Wednesday’s at 5:30 p.m. we will have what we are calling prayer at the cross and everyone is welcome to come a join us. As we pray for our country, community, and people. One more thing before I give you a little reminder about our Savior.

Pastor Eric Hill

Hopefully Lord willing by the middle or the end of June we can start our addition to our building.

The Lord has been so good to us and we would like to show our appreciation by witnessing to as many folks as we can.

Our world as we all know is going downhill and downhill fast. People are off doing there on thing and not paying too much attention to what is happening in our world and not focusing on their spiritual life. Let me Remind you of something, Jesus faced this incredible task of laying down his life as a ransom for the world. This task was traumatic and overwhelming, but Jesus accepted it willingly.

The cross that was on Calvary Hill, where our Savior, took on our sins. Was God’s plan from the very beginning of the birth of Jesus, that the sin of the world would require a sacrifice. Jesus the sinless Lamb of God who was slain form the foundation of the world laid down his life. Revelation 13:8. Was that sacrifice. But we know we serve a risen Savior who is in the world today. A big Amen there. Death could not hold Him, love what Frist Corinthians 15:55-58, says, O death, where is thy sting?  O grave, where is thy victory? 56- The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57- But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58-Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
