Singapore is sometimes called the Antioch of Asia. That's because we aspire to be like the original Syrian Antioch in the Book of Acts: the place from which the first missionaries were sent out into the Roman Empire, and a Church that was influential in the development of early Christianity.
Come on a Journey to learn about the History and spiritual legacy of Syrian Antioch and find out what you can discover!
Let Dr. Lim Kar Yong and Dr. Lai Pak Wah take you on an exploratory tour of the history and archaeology of Syrian Antioch, and its Spiritual legacy for Christianity.
This Virtual Tour is proudly brought to you by BGST's Alumni Resource Team.
