Hope

At Anchor Church we believe that no marriage, family, person, neighborhood, or city is 'beyond' hope. We will hold to this, not out of mere optimism but because our hope is rooted in the one that has defeated death.  We won’t give up or give in. Even as we struggle we will hold fast and tight to the Hope-Giver.

Hospitality

We believe that everyone can belong in a Christ-following community. Seekers, cynics, Christ-followers and Christ-forgetters. Belief is not a prerequisite for belonging. We will open our arms and our doors to all, because we have found that same warmth in the One we follow.

Presence

In an age of distraction and glam we believe the way forward for the church is to be present. This may sound boringly simple but think about it. When you connect with someone that isn't stealing glances at their watch or phone, someone that listens to your words and looks you eye to eye, it's then when you know you're loved. At Anchor Church we will fight to be present with our neighbors, co-workers, and friends, those that follow Christ and those that don't. We will do this because we have learned it from Jesus himself who stays with us in the mess and walks with us towards healing.

PURPOSE

We believe that no one is without purpose. Everyone has a story, passions, interests and pain; when all of those elements intersect and are surrendered to Jesus they bloom into something worth committing to. Some would refer to it as a sense of "calling"--we just call it purpose. Whether it's working with kids, sharing the gospel, doing the work of Justice, starting a business, or keeping a home, at Anchor Church we want to fan the flames of what God has deposited within you. We take deep delight in seeing people come alive, realizing that they were created on purpose and for purpose.
