Why Antioch? Antioch Fellowship Baptist Church (ACTS 11:25-26). “Then Barnabas departed for Tarsus to seek Saul. And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.” (1 Peter 4:16, Christians; "Followers of Christ”, or, "Of the Party of Christ”) Antioch-located some 200 miles N. of Sidon. Antioch was a major pagan metropolis, the third largest in the Roman Empire, behind Rome and Alexandria.(ACTS 11:19)
