About us

 

Our mission, as Anchor Baptist Church, is to glorify God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in our community and throughout the world; by obeying the commission of Christ to make disciples of all men; by God-honoring, Biblically sound worship; by the edification and equipping of all believers through Biblically purposed fellowship; by Spirit-enabled preaching of the Word of God; by our obedience to His Word; by showing our dependency upon Him through prayer.

 

At Anchor, we believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important aspect of life. He not only offers salvation from sin, but the restoration of fellowship with a Holy, Righteous God, peace and hope for the hurting, rest to the weary, and friendship in times of trouble. It is our desire that you come to know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. The Gospel ("good news") is the person and work of Jesus Christ. When one confesses his sin before God, turns from and rejects his sin, and places his faith in Jesus' death and resurrection, the Bible says that a person is "born again." That relationship once severed by man's sin is fully and completely restored by Jesus Christ. The debt we owed to God for our sin was once and for all paid by His Son. At salvation, we are no longer under the wrath of God. We are His adopted children. The Spirit of God resides within our minds and hearts and authenticates us as God's own. We begin to grow and mature day by day by immersing ourselves in God's Word.

 

Our desire is to be Christ-centered in our corporate worship. There is a mixture of new and old hymns, choruses, and songs all done in a way the exalts Christ and not ourselves. Worship through music should never be done in a way which the distinction between Biblical truth and worldly entertainment is blurred. If you love Christ-centered music, come join us.
