Our STORY

The story of Antioch begins with Josh & Diane. They met in 2009 and after getting married they moved to Camarillo where they prepared for what God had next. In 2011, they moved to Los Angeles to start a church in Highland Park. 


After settling down with their young family, they began gathering a core group of people that had a similar desire to love Northeast L.A. by starting a multi-ethnic church. 


Pastor Josh picked the name Antioch because it was the first city in recorded history where followers of Jesus were called Christians. This was a result of the church gatherings being diverse in culture and background. 


The story of Antioch continues with the love of a never changing God in an ever-changing city.


Antioch is a part of the Evangelical Church of America and we affirm this Statement of Faith.
