Church Planting Update

Here’s a brief look at the first few months of Anchor Baptist Church!

We are extremely grateful to all of the churches that have supported this ministry with prayers and finances. God has and is using you to make a difference in Los Angeles County. We would not be able to do this work without your assistance! Thanks to your financial support, I’m able to dedicate my full time to the work of making disciples in our area. Thank you for this opportunity!

The church website has pictures from our Charter Sunday and videos of our baptisms.
