The Anchor/Cross Symbol

       The anchor was used in Christian art at a very early period, being frequently found in the catacombs. It is the symbol of steadfast hope, firmness, tranquillity, and patience.

Scripture References for The Anchor Chrismon:
  • "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek." Hebrews 6:19-20 (NIV)
  • "For even though I am absent in body, nevertheless I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good discipline and the stability of your faith in Christ." Colossians 2:5
