Meet The Studio Connection: Home of Cross Waves Church

One of the oldest Southern Baptist Churches in Michigan has a new name! Antioch Baptist Church in Roseville, Michigan has changed its name to “The Studio Connection, Home of Cross Waves Church.” This name change continues this church’s rich history of starting churches.

Antioch Baptist started in 1934 as a store front on Van Dyke in Detroit, MI. Through the years, Antioch Baptist started Bethel Baptist Church, Central Baptist Church and the Juneau Alaska Church. Now the church will become the home base for starting house churches across North America. Antioch Baptist was one of three churches that started the Baptist State Convention of Michigan.

Over the last couple years this small history-filled church has been on a fascinating journey. It started when Tim Steele, the pastor of Cross Waves Church, transitioned from their interim pastor to their pastor. For the last couple of years, the weekly Bible Talks that Cross Waves streams to their home groups have been taped live at the church on Sunday mornings.

So after a couple of years of these two churches working together, they have made the move more permanent even though The Studio Connection and Cross Waves Church will remain as two separate legal entities.
