By Mike Hazlip—
A prominent Citrus Heights church on Antelope Road is re-branding with a name change that the pastor says better reflects its purpose.

Antelope Road Christian Fellowship is now Foundation Christian Church, and Pastor Greg Kaiser says that while the logo and brand may change, the teaching remains the same.

“The name Foundation points to the uncertainty of a culture that no longer has roots, we don’t really know anymore what gives a person meaning and purpose,” Kaiser told The Sentinel in an email Tuesday. “The teachings of Jesus, however, do not change.”

Kaiser said the teachings of Jesus have offered hope and forgiveness of sins for two millennia.

The church announced the new name and logo in a July 15 release. The re-branded logo is a capital letter F rendered in a block.
