Why the Hope ANCHOR Cross?
The most common and frequently asked question at Hope is "Why is our cross in the shape of an Anchor?" The anchor cross is the ancient Christian symbol for Hope. Our Vision Statement reads as follows:
Anchored in Christ, Growing in Faith, Love and Service
The Hope Anchor Cross is based on Hebrews 6:19
"We have this hope, a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul..."
Even the shape of our building gives special meaning. It is in the shape of Noah's Ark. When life is chaotic and stormy, Jesus holds us secure. Our Hope family gathers to worship saved by the water of Baptism, a God who keeps covenant with us.
