|Mission||A Passion for Jesus and His Purposes on the Earth|
Antioch Community Church Fort Collins is part of the Antioch International Movement of Churches based in Waco, Texas. We are a movement of churches connected by relationship and a desire to love God, love one another and love those who do not know Jesus, through the power and work of the Holy Spirit. The Antioch Movement, which began more than 20 years ago, is dedicated to seeing the local church reproduce the Kingdom of God through evangelism and discipleship throughout the United States and around the world.
In 1987, a year-long intensive discipleship training school called Master’s Commission was established at Highland Baptist Church by Jimmy Seibert. The curriculum included nine months of Biblical ministry training in Waco, TX and a three month mission outreach overseas. In 1991-1992, four Master’s Commission graduates received additional training in cross-cultural missions and were sent out to start a church in Ulan Ude, Russia. The team began by starting cell groups and a weekly celebration service.
In 1996, the church was successfully planted and turned over to national leadership. Svet Mira, or Light of the World, continues to flourish today and is involved in training and sending its own church planters. In 1993, another wave of church planting teams located in nearby cities… including Irkutsk, Siberia and Ulan-Bator, Mongolia.
In April of 1995, the organization, which had incorporated in 1993, was renamed to Antioch Ministries International (AMI), and the Master’s Commission school changed its name to Antioch Training School (ATS).
While AMI’s President, Jimmy Seibert, and the other ministry leaders were gaining valuable ministry experience on staff at Highland Baptist Church, the training and sending process continued to flourish under AMI. In 1999, the Elders at Highland blessed Jimmy and any current church members to join him in planting a church in Waco with a specific ministry vision for reproducing cell-based churches around the world.
