"Making Disciples of Jesus Christ!"

Heading into the Spring and Summer

We at Antioch Baptist want to say thank God for each of you visiting our website and following us on our Facebook Live each Sunday morning at 10:30 am.  We also want to wish you and yours the greatest blessings of God in 2023!   We know this is a scary time in our community, and Nation.  Yet, as Disciples of Christ Jesus, we are to be at peace knowing that God is Sovereign in all things.  Don't let fear have a second of your thoughts, turn off the media scare storm.  Seek truth, Seek Jesus, and in your prayers remember us all.  Read and pray Psalm 91 over you, your family, and our Nation.  Keep watching our Facebook and our Website for more information on other activities at that time.

If you don't have a church, please come and visit with us!  Make sure you join us and keep up with the new things going on as we strive to meet the needs in our community such as our Youth/children's programs.  Remember our God who gave His Only Begotten Son the Lord Jesus and above all give Him praise and thanksgiving.
We are currently taking resumes for the part time paid position of Youth Director.  Please send your resumes by mail or email the Pastor or Church office.  Come and join the journey!

     Let us find ways to meet people and share the love of Jesus.  We are to be missionaries no matter where we are at and who we are with.  If we are not telling people about Jesus then we are not being obedient. 

     Friends, Jesus is wanting us all to stop and reprioritize not only our time, but our dependence upon Him.   That is why it is so important to belong to a true church, and worship with other believers.  May God bless each of you greatly, and if you are in the area check out our calendar and plan to join us.  

    We want to welcome Charlie Hall; William and Barbara Jordan; Dylan Frost, Ann and Bo Stokes, Matthew Stokes, Ty, Amy, and Landen Hall: Barbara and Steven Amberjack; Paul Spitzer; Cathy Polk, MaKayla Peebles, and Patrick Buggar, to our church family.  We praise God for bringing all of you into our family and look forward to serving and growing together. 

May God bless you and your journey with Him, or to Him!  If we at Antioch Baptist Church, Camden can help, then contact us.

Thanks for stopping by!   
Pastor Danny

A little about myself and my wife:  I am Rev. Dr. Danny M. Hedgepath, and I have been the Pastor of this great church since November 2, 2014.  My wife and I graduated from Lewisville High in Richburg, SC in 1979.  I entered the Air Force November 15, 1980 and retired from the Air Force in February 2001.  I was stationed at Luke AFB, AZ.; Kunsan AFB, Korea; Andrews AFB, Maryland; and Shaw Air Force Base, Sumter, SC.  Cindy and I before coming to Antioch Baptist, Camden served at Ashwood Baptist, Sumter; First Baptist Richburg, Richburg; and Sheldon Baptist in Sheldon, SC.  We thank God for the opportunity to come home to this area.  My wife is Cindy Simpson Hedgepath and worked for many years in the Sumter, Lee, Kershaw counties while a RN in Hospice.  We have a 40 year old Son Danny Jr. (DJ), who lives in New Jersey.  We also have a 38 year old daughter Shawna, along with two grandchildren Jaden (18) and Aubrey (8). 

As we are just getting our website up and running we hope you will continue to stop by and see what Antioch Baptist has going on.  Better yet, if you live in the area please stop by and see for yourself.  If we are not what you are looking for, then we will help you find it.  We want you to be where God wants you to be!

If you live in the Camden, Sumter area we invite you to join us for our services.  Please keep us in your prayers!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
