Welcome to Lakeview Church of the Nazarene
"LIFE CAN BE BETTER"
There can be no more optimistic statement than to say that life can be better. This is the one desire of almost every human heart. The sad truth is that far too many people have given up on this hope. They have sadly resigned themselves to the false belief that this is all there is to life - that wherever they are now is where they are destined to be by fate or accident. But the hope that life can be better is the central message of the cross of Jesus Christ. It was Jesus' own expressed purpose, "I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly." (John 10:10) He gave his life on the cross so that our lives can be made better by the life-changing power of the Holy Spirit.
Lakeview Church of the Nazarene is a "Holiness" Church in the "Wesleyan" tradition continuing Christ's ministry of making life better for as many souls as we can touch by making Christlike disciples of Jesus who go on to make Christlike disciples. We have been doing this in the Great Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina since 1953.
We believe that at Lakeview, you'll discover the truth that, in Christ, "Life Can Be Better!"
Simply put, "Holiness is Christ-likeness". At Lakeview we desire to be like Christ and to encurage others to join in that endeavor.
