about anthem

Our Mission

The mission at Anthem Church is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Vision

The vision of Anthem Church is to create a church that people who normally don't like church love to attend.
For way too long the church has been known for what it's against.  We want to be known for what we are FOR.  We are FOR Gainesville families, businesses, schools, teachers, churches and more.  Most of all, we are FOR you.  No matter what you believe, we think that as you engage with us you'll find that following Jesus just makes life better and makes you better at life.

SUNDAYS SHOULD BE THE BEST HOUR OF YOUR WEEK.

Our hope is that Sunday is the best hour of your week.  But not just you, if you have kids or students we hope they are begging you to bring them back!  Join us in person or online for a 60-minute gathering that includes incredible music and a helpful message most often by our Teaching Pastor Andy Stanley. 

We create amazing environments for your kids and students

life is better connected.

We don't think you should do life alone, so we don't!  Anthem is so much more than sitting in rows on Sundays.  We gather in smaller groups all over the city to connect with people and to take next steps spiritually.
In 2008 North Point Ministries  partnered with a group of families in Gainesville, FL to plant Anthem Community Church.   Most weekends the message is simulcast LIVE from Atlanta  and delivered by Teaching Pastor Andy Stanley.   While the strategic partnership with North Point fuels the strategy and model of church, Anthem is exclusively led and funded by the people of Alachua County.   Today, North Point Partners has grown into a global network of like minded churches.  You can learn more about North Point Partners here.

For way to long churches have been known for what they're against.

We want to be known for what we're FOR.

Below you'll find some more info about us, but I'd love to invite you to check out a service.  Whether in person or online, each week we gather for some amazing music and some helpful teaching most often by our Teaching Pastor Andy Stanley.

Hope to see you online or in person soon!

WHAT WE BELIEVE

About Scriptures

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error as we read it in its proper context.

About God

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world.

About Humanity

We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

About Salvation

We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.

About Life

We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.

About The Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world.
