As we embark on this 21-day journey of prayer and fasting together as a church, it’s important for us to understand that we’re not fasting in order to change God’s mind but rather to make ourselves more aware of His presence
We live to share the hope of Jesus with our city.
We love people.
We believe that church should be a place where people are free to come as they are, experience the life-changing effects of a relationship with Jesus and be connected with others through authentic relationships.
We are for the city.
We see this life as an opportunity for us to be a part of God’s great story of redemption. We want to live lives that make a difference as we reach out to our city and share the hope that we have in Jesus with others in a practical way.
We are all about Jesus.
Our goal in everything we do will always be to point people to Jesus. We believe that Jesus has done everything necessary to reconcile us to God and that through the cross we have been anchored eternally in God’s presence.
Anchored in Jesus.
We believe that Jesus is the only hope for humanity. We believe that as God’s Son Jesus stepped into this broken world and willingly gave up His life for us on the cross in order that we may be redeemed from our sins and reconciled to God, our Creator.
Anchored in Community.
We believe that church is not just an event to attend, but a community to belong to. It’s not just a place to visit on Sundays, but a family we share our lives with as we grow in our faith and serve our city together.
Anchored in Joburg.
We believe that God has called us to this city in order to reach people with the powerful message of God’s love, sharing the hope that we have found in Jesus and the grace that is available in Him.
Statement of Faith
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God, making us subject to God’s judgement.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and to empower us for life. Salvation of the individual is therefore by the grace of God alone, through repentance and faith in Christ Jesus, on the grounds of His merit and death alone.
These are some of the things that we value as a church. They shape the way we do things and the way we live out our faith.
We value Jesus, His finished work, the message of the Gospel of God’s Grace, and the movement and work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
We value scripture and how it points us to Jesus and our identity in Him.
We value all people, their worth and significance fixed in Christ.
We value families.
We value life as a gift from God, to be enjoyed and spent in the service of God and others.
We value authenticity.
Anchor Church is an elder governed church commissioned by church leaders in Johannesburg. We are currently overseen by our lead pastors and a strategic pastoral team, while relating to key apostolic leaders in South Africa and internationally.
