Anthem Ventura is part a family of churches helping people find their way back to God. The Anthem family of churches is united around shared mission, vision, values, and submission to the Lordship of King Jesus. In our cities, we are working to obey Jesus in helping people find their way back to God.
What a Year
Who we are:
Anthem is one church made up of many communities, practicing the way of Jesus together in our city. Together, we are becoming resilient disciples, who are a faithful family in the face of cultural coercion, live a vibrant life in the spirit, and are empowered as a courageous missional presence in our world. We live this out by organizing everything we do around three goals: be with Jesus, become like Jesus, do what Jesus did.
WE GROW IN APPLYING THE GOSPEL TO EVERY AREA OF LIFE
We believe the whole Bible points to Jesus and his work reconciling people back to God, so we grow in applying the gospel to every area of life, even when it’s easier to be the center of our own life.
WE REPRODUCE DISCIPLES, LEADERS, AND CHURCHES INTO THE NATIONS
We believe God’s story is a multiplying story, so, we reproduce disciples, leaders, and churches into the nations, even when it hurts to send out our friends, our family, our best.
WE LIVE OUT DISCIPLESHIP WITH A COMMUNITY OF BELIEVERS
We believe God is a relational God, so, we live out discipleship with a community of believers, even when culture tells us we can do life on our own.
WE ACT AND GIVE GENEROUSLY
We believe God is a generous God, so, we act and give generously, even when it stretches us.
WE ARE ON MISSION TO PROCLAIM AND DEMONSTRATE JESUS IN OUR LIVES EVERY DAY
We believe every follower of Jesus is sent by God, so, we are on mission to proclaim and demonstrate Jesus in our lives every day, even when it disrupts, easy, comfortable, and stable.
WE LEAD, WORSHIP AND PRAY IN FULL DEPENDENCE ON THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe reliance on the Holy Spirit is necessary for the body of Christ to function properly so, we lead, worship and pray in full dependence on the Holy Spirit, even when it's easier to operate in our own strengths and abilities.
WE CULTIVATE, AND ARE SHAPED BY THE EPHESIANS 4 GIFTS
We believe Jesus gave gifts (apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds and teachers) to equip and bring His church to maturity, so, we cultivate, and are shaped by the Ephesians 4 gifts, even when this pushes against our patterns and traditions.
