4Siloam Baptist AssociationANTIOCH MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCHORGANIZEDMARCH 7, 1874In the fall and winter of 1872, forty-one members were added to LibertyMissionary Baptist Church, Macon County, Tennessee as the results of a meetingheld at Buie’s School House in the Center Point community of Macon County,Tennessee now known as Galen. Worship services continued to be held at CenterPoint. On Saturday before the second Lord’s Day in January, 1874, the minutes ofLiberty Missionary Baptist Church reads as follows: “Sermon by Brother V.ASanders, then the Church took her seats in business order. (1) An invitation wasgiven for members to join the church; one came forward and was received. (2)Then there was a petitionary letter presented with the following names for letters forthe purpose of organizing a new Church at Center Point with following names towit: Abe and Nancy Freeman, Louisa Freeman, James Freeman, Franklin Freeman,C.B. Holland and wife Nancy Holland, C.H. Horn, J.F. Freeman, F.M. Harwood,W.H. Freeman, and M.B. Freeman. All of which was granted when organized.There being no other business the Church dismissed to meet at 11 O’clockSabbath.”W.L. Buie, ModeratorW.C Pipkin, ClerkTwelve names were on the petition for organization but eleven went into theorganization of the Church at Center Point. James Freeman did not go into theorganization.Antioch Missionary Baptist Church was constituted on Saturday before thesecond Sunday in March, 1874 (March 7, 1874), and is an offspring of LibertyMissionary Baptist Church which was constituted September 2, 1822. All theeleven constituent members were drawn from Liberty Church.The first pastor of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church was Elder W.L.Buie. Bro. Buie lived in this community and was a very prominent man at this time.Bro. Buie was born in Robertson County, Kentucky on February 14, 1825 and latermoved to Tennessee. He later joined Liberty Missionary Baptist Church and wasordained by Liberty Church in May, 1860.He was a veteran of the war with Mexico and after the Civil War served fora time as Trustee of Macon County.Brother Buie married Emily Smith, the daughter of a prominent Baptistminister on July 29, 1847. They had no children. His death occurred on Saturday,August 8, 1908, being one of the first to be buried in the Galen Cemetery.The first house of worship in which Antioch Church met was a free houseof worship. All denominations were permitted to worship in the building. Thisbuilding was destroyed by fire. No date of the fire was given. After this buildingwas destroyed by fire, the next house of worship was built by the Baptists ofAntioch. Some years later, the I.O.O.F Lodge (Odd Fellows Lodge) was permittedto add a second floor to the Church Building. This building burned the night ofNovember 12, 1917. Services were then held in the school house. This taken fromthe Saturday before the 4th Lords Day in November, 1917: “It was ordered by the

Siloam Baptist Association5Church that a building committee be appointed for the purpose of rebuilding theChurch House which was destroyed as above reported. The power of saidcommittee was to meet at an early date and take the necessary steps to rebuildingsaid Church House or to see to the kind and size of the house and take the propersteps to secure funds and material for the purpose of erecting said structure, and toemploy such workmen as is necessary for completion. Said committee elected iscomposed of J.W. Bohanon, Wert Dotson, B.S. Jones, S.F. Marsh, T.B. Harwood,and J.D.L. Blankenship. The building was constructed under their direction.The first service held in this building was on Saturday before the 4thSunday in August 1919.On Tuesday night, February 5, 2008, a tornado crossed Macon Countyfrom the southwest to the northeast causing destruction to property and taking lives.The Galen Community landscape was changed and our beloved Church buildingwas totally destroyed by the tornado. Antioch Church was called into a specialbusiness conference on February 7, 2008 at the Macon County Justice Center due tothe loss of our Church building in the tornado.

Siloam Baptist Association9ARTICLES OF FAITHI. OF THE SCRIPTURES - We believe that the Holy Bible was written by mendivinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has Godfor its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for itsmatter, that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us; and therefore is,and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and thesupreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.II Tim. 3:16-17; II Tim. 3:15; Prov. 30:5-6; Rom. 2:12; Phil. 3:16; I John 4:1.II. OF THE TRUE GOD- We believe that there is one, and only one living andtrue God, an infinite intelligent Spirit, whose name is JEHOVAH, the Maker andsupreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthyof all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there arethree persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; equal in every divineperfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work ofredemption. John 4:24; Ps. 83:18; Heb. 3:4; Rom. 1:20; Jer. 10:10; Ex. 15:11; Ps147:5; Isa. 6:3; I Pet. 1:15-16; Rev. 4:6-8; Mark 12:30; Rev. 4:11; Matt. 10:37; Jer.2:12-13; Matt. 28:19; John 15:26; I Cor. 12:4-6; I John 5:7; John 10:30; John 5:17;John 14:23; John 17:5 & 10; Acts 5:3-4; I Cor. 2:10-11; Phil. 2:5-6; Eph. 2:18; IICor. 13:14; Rev. 1:4-5.III. OF THE FALL OF MAN- We believe that man was created in holiness, underthe law of his Maker, but by voluntary transgression fell from that holy and happystate; in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint butchoice; being by nature utterly void of that holiness required by the law of God,positively inclined to evil; and therefore under just condemnation to eternal ruin,without defense or excuse. Gen. 1:27; Gen. 1: 31; Ecc. 7:29; Acts 17:26-29; Gen.2:16-17; Gen. 3:6-24; Rom. 5:12; Rom. 5:15-19; Ps. 51:5; Rom. 8:7; Isa. 53:6; Gen.6:12; Rom. 3:9-18; Eph. 2:1-3; Rom. 1:18,32; Rom. 2:1-16; Gal. 3:10; Matt. 20:15;Ezek. 18:19-20; Rom. 1:20; Rom. 3:19; Gal. 3:22.IV. OF THE WAY OF SALVATION - We believe that the salvation of sinners iswholly of grace; through the Mediatorial offices of the Son of God; who by theappointment of the Father, freely took upon him our nature, yet without sin;honored the divine law by his personal obedience, and by his death made a fullatonement for our sins: that having risen from the dead, he is now enthroned inheaven; and uniting in his wonderful person the tenderest sympathies with divineperfections, he is every way qualified to be a suitable, a compassionate, and an allsufficient Saviour. Eph. 2:3; Matt. 18:11; I John 4:10; I Cor. 3:5-7; Acts 15:11; John3:16; John 1:1-14; Heb. 4:14; Heb. 12:24; Phil. 2:6-7; Heb. 2:9 & 14; II Cor. 5:21;Isa. 42:21; Phil. 2:8; Gal. 4:4-5; Rom. 3:21; Isa. 53:4-5; Matt. 20:28; Rom. 4:25;Rom. 3:21-26; I John 4:10; I John 2:3; I Cor. 15:1-3; Heb. 9:13-15; Heb. 1:8; Heb.1:3; Col. 3:1-4; Heb. 7:25; Col. 2:9; Heb. 2:18; Heb. 7:26; Ps. 89:19; Ps. 45.

10Siloam Baptist AssociationV. OF JUSTIFICATION - We believe that the great gospel blessing which Christsecures to such as believe in him is justification; that justification includes thepardon of sin, and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness; that it isbestowed not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done,but solely through faith in the Redeemer's blood; by virtue of which faith his perfectrighteousness is freely imputed to us of God; that it brings us into a state of mostblessed peace and favor with God, and secures every other blessing needful for timeand eternity. John 1: 16; Eph. 3:8; Acts 13:39; Isa. 53:11-12; Rom. 5:1-2; Rom. 5:9;Zech. 13: 1; Matt. 9:6; Acts 10:43; Rom. 5:17; Titus 3:5-7; I Peter 3:7; I John 2:25;Rom. 5:21; Rom. 4:4-5; Rom. 6:23; Phil. 3:7-9; Rom. 5:19; Rom. 3:24-26; Rom.4:23-25; I John 2:12; Rom. 5:3; Rom. 5:11; I Cor. 1:30-31; Matt. 6:33; I Tim. 4:8.VI. OF THE FREENESS OF SALVATION - We believe that the blessings ofsalvation are made free to all by the gospel; that it is the immediate duty of all toaccept them by a cordial penitent, and obedient faith; and that nothing prevents thesalvation of the greatest sinner on earth, but his own inherent depravity andvoluntary rejection of the gospel; which rejection involves him in an aggravatedcondemnation. Isa. 55:1; Rev. 22:17; Luke 14:17; Rom. 16:25-26; Mark 1:15; Rom.1: 15-17; John 5:40; Matt. 23:37; Rom. 9:32; Pro. 1:24; Acts 13:46; John 3:19;Matt. 11:20; Luke 10:27; II Thess. 1:8.VII. OF GRACE IN REGENERATION - We believe that in order to be saved,sinners must be regenerated, or born again; that regeneration consists in giving aholy disposition to the mind; that it is effected in a manner above ourcomprehension by the power of the Holy Spirit, in connection with divine truth, soas to secure our voluntary obedience to the gospel; and that its proper evidenceappears in the holy fruits of repentance and faith and newness of life. John 3:3; John3:6-7; I Cor. 2:14; Rev. 14:3; Rev. 21:27; II Cor. 5:17; Ezek. 36:26; Deut. 30:6;Rom. 2:28-29; Rom. 5:5; I John 4:7; John 3:8; John 1:13; James 1: 16-18; I Cor.1:30; Phil 2:13; I Peter 1:22-25; I John 5: 1; Eph. 4:20-24; Col. 3:9-11; Eph. 5:9;Rom. 8:90; Gal. 5:16-23; Eph. 3:14-21; Matt. 3:8-10; Matt. 7:20; I John 5:4, 18.VIII. OF REPENTANCE AND FAITH -We believe that repentance and faith aresacred duties and also inseparable graces, wrought in our souls by the regeneratingSpirit of God; whereby being deeply convinced of our guilt, danger, andhelplessness, and of the way of salvation by Christ, we turn to God with unfeignedcontrition, confession, and supplication for mercy; at the same time heartilyreceiving the Lord Jesus Christ as our Prophet, Priest and King, and relying on himalone as the only and all-sufficient Saviour. Mark 1:15; Acts 11:18; Eph. 2:8; I John5:1; John 16:8; Acts 2:37-38; Acts 16:30-31; Luke 18:13; Luke 15:18-21; James4:7-10; II Cor. 7:11; Rom. 10:12-13; Ps. 51; Rom. 10:9-11; Acts 3:22-23; Heb.5:14; Ps. 2:6; Heb. 1:8; Heb. 8:25; II Tim. 1:12.

Siloam Baptist Association11IX OF GOD'S PURPOSE OF GRACE - We believe that election is the eternalpurpose of God, according to which he graciously regenerates, sanctifies, and savessinners; that being perfectly consistent with the free agency of man, it comprehendsall the means in connection with the end; that it is a most glorious display of God'ssovereign goodness, being infinitely free, wise, holy and unchangeable; that itutterly excludes boasting, and promotes humility, love, prayer, praise, trust in God,and active imitation of his free mercy; that it encourages the use of means in thehighest degree; that it may be ascertained by its effects in all

Antioch Missionary Baptist Church was constituted on Saturday before the second Sunday in March, 1874 (March 7, 1874), and is an offspring of Liberty Missionary Baptist Church which was constituted September 2, 1822. All the eleven constituent members were drawn from Liberty Church.

Antioch was a missionary-minded church, and in this chapter Paul and Barnabas are sent forth from Antioch on their first missionary journey. It was true then and it is true today, that evangelism is the lifeblood of the Church. When a local church fails to have a healthy outreach, it begins to die. Those who do not evangelize tend to fossilize.
