Pastors Welcome

Thank you for taking time to visit us on the web.  It is our prayer that people will come to know the Lord in a personal relationship, walk with Him in deeper fellowship, and in turn communicate Him to others with a positive impact.

At Grace Baptist Church it is our high calling to preach and proclaim boldly that Christ Jesus is the only Lord and Savior, and that to know Him is to follow His commission to win others with that same truth.

If you are in or around the greater Lenoir City area, and you desire a church that is passionate for Christ and His Word I hope you will visit us soon.

Yours in Christ,

Brother Jeff Waldrop
