Our pastors are pictured here with Sisters Sarah, Helen and Annie (from left to right).  As they walked, they prayed for the families, residents and businesses of our local community.

Highlights of the day include stopping at our 6th Street Parking Lot to pray with Pastor Oakie and John of the Believers in Christ Ministry that feeds over 150 people in need each Sunday afternoon.

The group spent time at the new building site, praying over the workers and the ministries that will be housed in the building.  The visitors loved hearing the history of our faithful congregation and our rebuilding has inspired them.  Antioch Baptist Church, organized in 1893, is the oldest African American Church in San Jose.
