Visiting any church, especially a larger one, for the very first time can be an overwhelming experience. Well, we want to put you at ease. Your first visit to Anchorage Baptist Temple will be refreshing, friendly, and enjoyable for your whole family. We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and “at home”!
We have 4 unique services every week; Sunday at 10am, Sunday at 11am, Sunday at 6pm, and Wednesday at 7:30pm. Our 10am and 11am Sunday services feature programs for infants and children all the way through high school; and our 6pm Sunday service and Wednesday night service features programs for infants and children through 5 year olds.
So that you won’t feel rushed, we do recommend that you arrive 20 minutes before the service so that you have time to drop off your kids at their programs and make your way over to the main auditorium. Click here for information on our kids programs.
There is not a dress code at ABT for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress; however, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at ABT! We’re thrilled that you’re joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you’re wearing.
We are committed to a compelling, challenging presentation of God’s truth. Our format is accessible to anyone, no matter where they are on their life’s journey. This time is set aside for connecting with believers and worshiping God through song, praise, and study.
We have a variety of traditional and contemporary live worship. Everyone worships in his or her own unique way – for some, that means singing, clapping, and raising their hands; for others, it means quietly reflecting on the words. At ABT, you’re welcome to do what comes from the heart in praise to God.
In every service, you will hear a relevant, straightforward message based on Scripture that will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide you with a strong Biblical foundation.
LISTEN TO A SERMON
ABT offers interactive, age-appropriate programs for your kids to enjoy while you are attending services in the main auditorium. From infant to high school, we have a program that builds your child’s relationship with Jesus Christ and the ABT community! Do you have an infant – 5th grader, Jr. High student, or Sr. High student?
Each week, there is time to worship God through the giving of tithes and offerings, but as a guest, please do not feel any pressure to give unless you were blessed by the sermon and feel led to. This is an act of worship for our regular attendees, allowing them to thank God for the work he is doing in their lives and gives ABT the means to reach more people for Christ in the future.
Our pastor and pastoral staff would love to meet you! After the 11am service, staff and their wives are in the VIP Room where refreshments and donuts are available. We will have a trusted adult bring your kids to the VIP Room from their Sunday school class rooms. On Sunday or Wednesday night, our staff is at the Connection Center.
