Jesus said the greatest thing we can do is to love God with everything we have, and to love others in the same way.
He invites us to follow Him: Not only to trust Him and live with God eternally, but to live the eternal kind of life today. When Jesus taught His friends to pray, He told us to pray for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Our prayer is that the life of Christ in us, the hope of glory, would demonstrate God’s love in San Diego as it is in heaven.
Anchor City Church exists to be a church for the city. We seek to bless and serve San Diego through incarnational presence. We want to unleash the God-given creativity of our church community so we can go and bless the neighborhoods where we live, work, and spend time.
Some of our local partnerships include: Help-Portrait to join with people in need, take, print & deliver their portraits—free of charge, San Diego Refugee Tutoring to serve students who have come from over 10 different countries, and Flourish San Diego to participate with God in flourishing our city and world into what it was created to be.
We believe God has also called us to join His work of redemption and healing around the world. We seek to accomplish this through financial contributions to different partner organizations, through cross-cultural, short-term mission trips, and support of long-term missionaries.
Some of our partnerships include: Justice Ventures International to fight human trafficking in India and China, Living Water International to bring clean water in Central America, and World Vision to help children and families in need around the world build a better future.
Anchor City believes strongly in the theology of the table, where Jesus invites the lost and broken to sit at His table as family. We believe in investing in individual relationships, particularly through the breaking of bread together.
We also seek to reach out to families with children in a creative and vibrant atmosphere, where parents are empowered to be the main spiritual disciplers of their own children. We want to teach our NextGen Ministry that this is our Father’s world, that following Jesus is the greatest adventure, and that each of us has a place in God’s family!
