Lillington Grace Church is a Church of the Nazarene — a denomination in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. That means we believe that there is more to living a Christian life than just saying the sinner’s prayer and attending worship services. We believe that God asks of us to give him everything about us–to invest in our relationship with Him in the same way that He has loved, valued, and invested in us.
OUR MISSION AND VISION:
Lillington Grace Church of the Nazarene exists: to demonstrate the character of Christ tangibly; and, to build the Body of Christ spiritually. This is our role in “making Christ-like disciples in the nations.”
MINISTRY TEAM:Pastor Tim is our lead pastor; he planted and oversaw the organization of Lillington Grace Church. The church currently meets in their home on Sunday mornings. Ardith is commissioned by the Church of the Nazarene for Christian Education.
