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.

Want to get connected?

Anthem is all about family, so no matter how big or small your question you can always find people ready to help. Take a moment to fill out our connect caformd and we will get back to right away!

Community Rule of Life

A rule of life is a schedule and set of practices and relational rhythms that help us create space in our busy world for us to be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did—to live “to the full” in his kingdom, and in alignment with our deepest passions and priorities.

Join us as we practice our Community Rule of Life for the next month.
