• A Family of Churches

    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.

Weekly Guide

Welcome to Anthem Church!

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 faithful in the face of cultural coercion, and who live a vibrant life in the Spirit. We live this out by organizing everything we do around three goals: be with Jesus, become like Jesus, do what Jesus did.

Anthem House to House

Gathering together wherever you are, with others, in person or online, to share life, learn together, respond together, and be the church together.

Responding in Worship

In addition to singing, there are a few ways we respond in worship: 

GIVING & GENEROSITY

Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. He gave his life so that we might live. As Christians, we give our time, talent, and money joyfully in response to Jesus’ generosity and to help more people meet Jesus.
