FIND HOPE GIVE HOPE

Anchor is a ministry of Community Gospel Church; a non-denominational church in Oneonta, NY. Anchor functions as the Sunday evening service of the church.

Community Gospel Church was founded over 40 years ago by a group of young adults with a vision to bring spiritual renewal to our city, by the grace of God. Throughout the years, the church has grown into a greater body of ministries, all teaming up to bring the love of God to whoever will receive. You can learn more about Community Gospel Church here.

Anchor is passionate about reaching young adults and families with the message of redemption through Jesus. We are a group of imperfect people striving to walk hand-in-hand with a perfect God and bring others along with us. We strive to live authentically in relationship with God and live in a community marked by forgiveness and joy.

We believe that we can be vessels of positive change in our community. We believe that we can give hope to the hopeless by introducing people to Jesus. We believe that we can help people realize their full potential, and walk in their God-given calling. We believe that Oneonta can be a destination, not just a checkpoint. Believe with us.

What We Believe


 

WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

We are part of a non-demoninational church. We join in with a chorus of millions of Christians through the past two thousand years:

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, ultimately authoritative Word of God in all matters of faith.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three personalities: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God born of a virgin, that He performed miracles, that He lived a sinless life, that He redeemed us by His atoning death through His shed blood, that He was bodily resurrected, that He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and that he will personally return in power and glory.

We believe in the total inability of man to save himself through unaided human effort.

We believe that men are saved through a complete commitment of themselves to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord together with their being regenerated by the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a victorious life and by whose administration the Christian Church receives miraculous gifts and ministries in this present day.

We believe that every man shall stand before the judgment seat of Christ to give account of the stewardship of his earthly life.
