Anchoring People to Faith in Christ

Our mission and vision at The Sanctuary is to Anchor the hearts of people into a close and personal relationship with Jesus where they know Him as Lord, King and Savior. We believe in physical, emotional and spiritual transformation the instant a person accepts Jesus and Anchors their Faith in Him. 

Worship The Lord In Giving

We give as an act of worship. We ask big, pray big, and expect big things to come out of a people that lives and operates in Kingdom mentality. Jesus is King over our finances and places us as stewards over His income. We give back to launch new Kingdom opportunities for the Gospel to reach to ends of the earth.
