Christ United was founded in 2011. We are currently located at 4681 Grace Chapel Rd, Granite Falls, NC. It is one of 42 Lutheran churches in the Carolina’s Mission District that are part of the North American Lutheran Church, the fastest growing church body in North America, uniting more than 100,000 Lutherans in almost 400 congregations across North America. The NALC has four core values: Christ Centered, Mission Driven, Traditionally Grounded and Congregationally Focused.
Christ United echo’s these core values. It is a church family committed to the authority of the Bible as the inspired Word of God. In keeping with the Lutheran Confessions, we believe all doctrines should and must be judged by the teaching of Scripture.
Christ United is grounded in the unique Gospel of Jesus Christ, animated by missions and evangelism, and rooted in the 2,000-year tradition of Christian faith. Yet it is also a renewed Lutheran community, moving forward in faith and focused on living out Christ’s Great Commission to go and make disciples in Granite Falls, North Carolina, the United States of America and around the Globe.
As a young and yet evolving church, we are excited and aware of the Holy Spirit’s creative work in and with us. We teach and believe that God bestows on every person specific gifts and talents, to be used for His purpose within the congregation. Christ United shares and lives their mission Statement, “United in Christ we stand – sharing the JOY of Jesus”.
