We believe Jesus is God. We see his teachings and ways to live the good life, the life we’re designed to live, not as good advice, good suggestions, or good morality, but literally good news.
Jesus came proclaiming this good news of the kingdom of God, then though his life, death and resurrection, provided a way for people to join his kingdom. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus, all for Jesus, and all because of Jesus.
We invite you to learn more about this Jesus who changed everything and offers each one of us grace, forgiveness, redemption, restoration and new life.
The word “Gospel” literally means “good news.” It is the good news of God taking on flesh through the person Jesus Christ and rescuing mankind by His perfect life that we could never live, His substitutionary death that we deserved, and the resurrection that now gives us true life through His Spirit.
At Anthem, you will hear the word “Gospel” repeatedly because it is the most important truth that we can know and experience. The Gospel is the lens in which we should view theology, ministry, and all aspects of life. Simply put, the Gospel is all about Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, and the implications it has for us.
While the Gospel can be stated in a sentence, it is also the grand narrative that is told throughout the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. The Gospel is the glorious story of how God is reconciling the whole world back to Himself through the life, death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. It is personal, yet cosmic. It is simple, yet infinite.
