Antioch Baptist Church’s Deaf Ministry is a revolutionary program that gets more members of the Deaf community in Little Rock involved in worship services. This ministry binds worshipers together and opens the doors for those that may not otherwise be able to worship. This is a safe and inviting place for the Deaf to worship the Lord in an environment where they can be themselves with no restraints.
The purposes of the Antioch Baptist Church Deaf Ministry are to: guide people to God’s saving grace, create an intimate and growing relationship, meet together for spiritually vibrant Bible studies and worship services, empower Deaf believers to share the gospel of Christ with others, and train Deaf members to use their talents and abilities to serve others in the Antioch Church family, the community, and throughout the world.
The Antioch Baptist Church website says, “It’s our desire to transcend racial, denominational, and socioeconomics lines in order to reach people. We want to be inclusive of all of those who desire to fellowship and follow the Lord! The Lord Jesus gave us these instructions: Jesus said to His Followers, “Go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone.” (Mark 16:15)”
