About Us

Maranatha Baptist Church is strategically located for ministering to people in northeastern Anchorage, including military personnel at Fort Richardson and Elmendorf Air Force Base.

An independent Baptist church, we believe in

  • Biblical Authority
  • Autonomy of the local church
  • Priesthood of all believers
  • Two ordinances – Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
  • Individual soul liberty
  • Saved church membership
  • Two offices – Pastor and Deacon
  • Separation of Church and State

Maranatha Baptist Church exists to to magnify and glorify our Lord Jesus Christ and to share the Gospel with the people of Anchorage. In addition, we seek to teach the Word of God in order to promote spiritual growth and maturity in the lives of God’s people, while providing a base for warm Christian fellowship.
