Cross Anchored remains steadfast in our conviction that God has called us – as individuals and as a group – to a music ministry. We stand apart in the way we seek to use our talent to glorify the Lord but above all, we stand firmly with sincerity and a genuine desire to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with a hurting and needy world. Our commitment to ministry and desire to see people drawn closer to the Lord are the driving forces behind all we do.
