Antioch is an unincorporated community in Bibb County, Alabama, United States, located west of Randolph along Bibb County Road 20. It is home to several churches, including Antioch Baptist Church, the community's namesake, which formed in 1833.

Though the community was not officially constituted until 1833, Antioch's notoriety comes from being the county seat of Bibb from 1818 until 1830.

Remnants of the Woolley School remain on County Road 20. Formerly a one-room schoolhouse with J.C. Hicks as Schoolmaster, the Woolley School is now an abandoned structure that has been vacant for at least 30 years.

Antioch appears on the Randolph U.S. Geological Survey Map.
