Antioch was born out of a desire of like-minded Christians to use Internet to reach the world for Christ.
As individual Christians, we shared the similar passion of being fishers of men for Jesus, ministering to people whilst we work. The jobs we held enabled us to share the good news and our testimonies; ministering to people groups within our oikos, to both Christians and non Christians alike.
In early 1994, some of us felt the need to set up an organization to further the gospel of Christ. The vision of creating an electronic network of information, riding on the Internet, for the body of Christ to access to was birthed.
This is a viable means of transport which will allow a traveling minister, missionary or pilgrim to connect 'home'. The pilgrim can keep in touch with his church as well as access the tools for his ministry.
In the course of the discussion, more people joined the groupand became exceedingly excited with the idea of "taking the cyberspace for Christ". Thus the dream was formed.
Antioch was incorporated because we see Singapore as the Antioch of Asia. Singapore, being the information centre of this region,is an ideal place to set up a Network of information resources to service the Christian community within and outside of this island.
Drawing parallels with the activities at Antioch in A.D. 40, we envision the people of the LORD coming together in one accord through the creation of a new Antioch in A.D. 2000, which we call Antioch; where all can come and meet together; thus breaking the geographic boundaries that physically restrain us in fellowshipping with one another in these exciting times.
