Our History

Anchorage Bible Fellowship was incorporated in the fall of 1982.  Originally located on Government Hill we moved to our current location in April of 1996 and held our first worship service in June of that year.  The building, previously a warehouse and holding facility for road graders/equipment, was transformed into the beautiful place we now call home.

About Anchorage

Anchorage got its start as a railroad camp, a tent city settled along the banks of Ship Creek. Sitting in a bowl between the Chugach Mountain Range and Cook Inlet,  Alaska's largest city holds 44% of the state's population, about 298,000 in a 2012 estimate.  The longest summer days contain 19 hours 21 minutes of daylight in contrast to the shortest winter day containing about 5 1/2 hours.

Anchorage is bordered by a joint military base: Elmendorf AFB and Fort Richardson.  Though often described as having a "small town" feel, the city has many of the amenities offered by a much larger city: world class dining, performing arts center, museums, etc.  For the outdoor enthusiasts, there are many hiking trails, skiing - downhill and nordic, biking, etc. all within a short distance.
