Anchor Baptist Church of Washington Court House began as a church plant mission on September 18, 2008, sent out by the Hillsboro Bible Baptist Church, with twenty-two people attending the first services. By November 22, 2009, God had blessed the church with fifty-three members and the congregation chartered as an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church. Pastor Jeremy D. Griffith is Anchor Baptist Church’s founding and current Pastor. In November 2007 Pastor Griffith felt a desire to plant a baby church and his prayer was answered when the Lord confirmed the call on his family to move to Washington Court House to start a new work.
The Lord has continued to bless Anchor Baptist Church over the past four years. We have seen hundreds of souls saved, lives changed, and the church now averages between 210-230 people in attendance on Sunday mornings. Anchor was able to purchase their current facility located at 456 Jamison Rd. SW from Merchants National Bank in January of 2010. This building has allowed the church the space and facilities it needs to minister to families. Anchor Baptist has numerous ministries for families of all ages to get involved in to help grow their relationship with the Lord.
It is the desire of Anchor Baptist Church to be a light and Soul Saving Station here in our community of Washington Court House and the surrounding areas.
