Why We Exist

Why We Exist
In the summer of 2011, a group of about twenty Christians began praying together on Monday nights in Redlands, California. They asked the Lord to provide a shepherd who would lead them in planting a church that would honor Christ with a genuine devotion to the gospel.

Upon completion of the Grace Advance Academy, Pastor Todd Barnett became that shepherd.

The biblical foundations of this church then became:


a high view of God,

the sufficiency of His Word,

the hope of His gospel, and

the joy of His church.

On September 4th, 2011, The Anchor Bible Church gathered for our first Lord's Day worship service, rejoicing in what He has and will accomplish, for His glory!

Below is a picture of one of our monthly baptism services.
