About Anchorage City Church (ACC)
ACC is recruiting for a senior apostolic leader to work with the Leadership Team. ACC is a multicultural nondenominational church functioning under the Five Fold Ministry, as found in Ephesians 4:11-13. ACC is a pentecostal Christian church whose doctrine is biblical with a form of worship that is charismatic in style.
We believe the Bible is the Divinely inspired Word of God, we believe that both the Old and New Testaments outlines all things necessary for salvation. We believe in one eternally existent, holy, infinite God, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe, revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ, by His sufferings, by the shedding of His own blood, by His death on the Cross and by His resurrection from the grave made full atonement for all human sin. We believe that salvation is wholly through grace by faith; that no human righteousness or merit can contribute to our receiving God's love and favor. We believe that upon true repentance for sin and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ we are justified before God through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ.
