Grace Fellowship began as a daughter church of Meadowview Reformed Presbyterian Church in Lexington. During the 1980’s and 90’s, the Holy Spirit was bringing renewal to that congregation. Men and women who’d been church members for years were rediscovering the hope and freedom of the Gospel and sharing that Good News with their neighbors. During that time, several families from the Asheboro area began to drive to Meadowview for worship and expressed their hope for a similar kind of work in Asheboro.
In late 1999, Meadowview leaders started a Sunday evening Bible study at the Days Inn Conference Room in Asheboro. Members of that Bible Study became part of a core group to launch a new church. With the Blessing of the Piedmont Triad Presbytery, Meadowview sent Jeremy Sink to organize the church in the Fall of 2001.
Over the years, one of Grace Fellowship’s main governing principles/values has been that there is “present value” in the Gospel. Christians grow in the same way they are born – through faith and repentance in response to the Good News of Jesus. We wanted to be a church where both Christians could be honest about areas of sin, weakness, and doubt. And we wanted to be a church where not-yet-Christians could wrestle and ask honest questions with the expectation that the Spirit would meet them and make them a part of the Family of God.
