Mission & Vision

Los Angeles & Studio City

A City of Stories

At Anthology we believe that everyone’s life is a story. And the way we live shows what we believe is most important. We are a city full of people with diverse stories. We live out our stories in the art we create, the business we pursue, the leisure we enjoy, and the way we treat each other.

But is there a Grand Story that unites us all? We believe there is, and it’s God’s Story.

Our Mission:

"Uniting our stories together with God’s Story to see a greater work in our city”

“And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth...in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us…”

Acts 17:26-27


Def: a collection of literary pieces or passages brought together in one greater work

God’s Story Transforms us

Individually & Corporately

We Believe God’s Story:

  • Frees us from building our identity on image, success, or reputation because Jesus gives us a greater joy & satisfaction
  • Restores us and makes us new through the unending grace given to us through Jesus’s death & resurrection
  • Humbles us from self-righteousness because we are broken and helpless, needing a savior
  • Changes us from obeying in order to be accepted by God to obeying because we are accepted in Jesus
  • Leads us to a life of loving one another & those different than ourselves because we have been so loved by Jesus

a community to make a difference

A church for the city

We Long To Be:

  • A community of giving & sacrifice in a culture of taking & consuming
  • A community of authentic beauty in a culture focussed on outward appearances
  • A community that seeks justice in a culture of personal and corporate injustice
  • A community of faithful dedication in a culture lacking commitment
  • A community of humble truth in a culture of relativity
