Pastoral Search

Who We Are

Founded in 1994, Faith is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) with a regular attendance of about 200 people. We seek to glorify God by living out the gospel of Jesus Christ in joyful obedience to His Word, before a needy world. We believe we are created for worship. We desire to worship God in reverence and joy, with a solid foundation in the richness of our tradition. We believe in service to one another and active engagement in our communities, proclaiming Christ’s love and redemption to all.

Anchorage is Alaska’s largest city with about 300,000 residents. Surrounded by mountains, water, and wildlife, Anchorage is a beautiful and easy place to call our home.

We are a warm and welcoming church.  In addition to our service of worship, we enjoy a robust church life of Sunday School, community groups, Bible studies, women’s ministry, men’s ministry, and monthly fellowship meals.  Our desire is for this redeemed community to reach out to the greater Anchorage area and beyond.
