Testimonials

Jeanne Mclachlan Morrison /Dorr, Michigan

The preaching was such an encouragement to us! We spent a couple of months with them and felt like it was a home away from home!

Sandy Hardin /Raceland, Kentucky

10 years spent of true faith & happiness with this Church. Moved back to KY

Geri Winning /Longs, SC

Pastor sharing the truth about our Lord Jesus. Learning what God wants for his people. How and why you need Jesus. We love the written word of God as given in the King James Bible. God’s not willing that any should perish but all should come to repentance. Great teaching at Anchor Baptist and a lot of LOVE ❤️.

Kellie Wirmel /Lebanon, OH

Such a wonderful, friendly church! We attend here while on vacation in Myrtle Beach. It is such a blessing to be able to worship our Lord with others who know and Love Him! Love this church! (April 13, 2019)

Everyone was so friendly & welcoming & the teaching & preaching was from the KJV & I left truly fed by the word of God 🥰

They have good solid doctrine and are grounded in Christ. As soon as I walked in the door they made me feel welcomed like family and that is also important.

A wonderful church with a great pastor, serving God and reaching souls for the cause of Christ in the community.

Karen Ward /Bloomsburg, PA

Very sound, Biblical teaching. Love the way the Spirit testifies to our souls, discerning for us! It is well with my soul! Excellent Sunday School message about the “Rainbow” that God gave to remind us of His Covenant with us. And the message by Pastor Wood about speech that’s pleasing to God, and the marks of a right heart to go to God. Thank-you!

Traci Adams /Pinehurst, NC

We enjoyed our visit while we were at the beach with a friend! very warm and welcoming!!

Considerations

Word of God

The scripture is what God uses to bring us to salvation and through sanctification. All preaching, teaching, memorizing, and public readings in our ministry is done from the King James Version of the Bible. This uniformity improves the edification of participants. The KJV has proven itself over time to accurately convey the words of God to English speaking people. We recognize the liberty of individuals to have other reliable translations for personal use in our services. Read More

Evangelism

Every person must face God as their judge. We believe it is our duty to warn people of this truth and also urge them to receive Jesus as their advocate and Savior. He paid the price for our crimes. Jesus alone can justify a person with His own righteousness. Only then can we stand before our Divine Judge having escaped eternal condemnation and ready to receive rewards. We seek to equip believers to engage in this critical mission. Read More

Missions

We believe it is our responsibility to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth. We support numerous missionaries with our prayers, but have added financial support to the following missionary endeavors. Read More

Music

We believe that music in public assembly as well as in private should complement the character of God. For this reason, we reject music that has a fleshly appeal. We elevate a sacred style that draws the audience into reverence for our Lord. Musicians are to be ministers and not entertainers. Worship is a byproduct of godly music and should not be manufactured by superficial emotionalism or spontaneous excitement. For this reason, we have purposefully distanced ourselves from the "Praise & Worship" motif with the accompanying CCM, Southern Gospel, or Rock & Roll music styles. We follow a traditional & sacred approach with a mixture of the beloved hymns of the past and current compositions that are written after the same framework. We humbly attempt to sing with the spirit and understanding (1 Cor 14:15). Read More
