Statement of Faith
The Anchor is a Christian non-profit organization. WE BELIEVE there is one God, maker of heaven and earth, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17, Matthew 28:19).
WE BELIEVE Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man (Matthew 1:18,23).
The Bible is the foundation for these truths. It is God’s Word uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, and is authoritative on all matters on which it speaks (2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
WE BELIEVE that God loved us so much that He sent His son, Jesus into this world to redeem us by offering himself as the substitutionary sacrifice for our sins; He died for us; and He demonstrated His victory over sin and death by rising physically from the dead and ascending to heaven (Romans 5:8-9, Romans 6:23, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
The result of this saving work is the justification, by God’s grace, of all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation and eternal life (Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16-17, Romans 4:4-5).
WE BELIEVE that God chooses to work through the believers in His church and that we are called to evangelism and discipling of believers within the fellowship of the church and outreach to the world (Matthew 28:19-20, 1 Peter 2:9). The church is representative of the Body of Christ, of which He is the Head (Romans 12:4-8).
