Anchor Community Church is a Community of Faith in Long Beach California. We exist to glorify God and make disciples by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and by pursuing authentic relationships that lead to lives being transformed in Biblical Community. We are aiming to be a diverse family of missionaries on mission to extend God's Kingdom by proclaiming and living out the implications of the gospel in our communities. Our hope is that by the grace of God, we build a multi-ethnic, multicultural community here at Anchor that loves God, one another and the community, and reflects the community of Long Beach and the clear trajectory of the gospel message.

We Desire to Be Kingdom Minded
We desire that Jesus' name is made famous not Anchor's or any of our names and ministries. Therefore we believe in the partnership with solid ministries for the sake of the kingdom and the gospel going out from Long Beach to the whole world. We are committed to that, and are working toward partnerships for that purpose! Here are some of the ministries we partner with!
