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.

In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.
