About Grace Church

Grace Church began in an apartment with a few families in January of 1988 and has grown to more than 1,500 people attending every week at our different campuses. From humble beginnings Randy and Sarah Thornton obeyed the call of God to plant a Gospel-centered church in the heart of the Sandhills region, and over thirty years later, Grace Church has seen thousands of people make decisions to follow Jesus Christ.

Our vision has always been to impact the cities around us. God has called Grace Church to be a house of prayer for all nations that makes intercession for all people groups as well as a center of praise and worship that honors and lifts high the name of Jesus Christ. In an unrelenting pursuit of these two things, we believe God will raise up an army of fully devoted followers of Christ.
