Our Story

Lanier Christian Church began in a living room in 1974.  In 1976 the church called a young couple to serve as the first full time minister, David & Faith Simpson.  It was in 1976 that the first building was constructed on Browns Bridge Road with the help of Mt. Carmel Christian Church.  In 1993, with a need for more space, the church relocated to its current location on Dawsonville Highway.  The Lakeside Worship at Gainesville Marina began in 2009.  The church continues to reach all ages for Christ by presenting the simple truth of God's Word and offering service to the community in His name.  

Our Purpose

Lanier Christian Church exists to be an ANCHOR that offers people the security of faith, hope and love that is found in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Our theme verse is found in Hebrews 6:19   "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure."  There is an actual anchor at the entrance to our building, a reminder of the hope we have in Christ!
