We are firmly committed to being relevant for today through our worship, our teaching, and our compassionate ministry beyond our church walls.


Word of Life was founded in 1977 in upstate South Carolina as a Church of God congregation with the sole purpose of helping people find love, purpose, and growth in Christ. The Lord breathed on that vision and today, our church is made up of people from many generations, cultures, and backgrounds who share a passion for Jesus and His kingdom.

Under the guidance of lead pastors John and Jeanie Smith, we are a family of Believers with a heart for authentic worship, are passionate about the local church, and are on mission to see God's love spread throughout our community. We love what God is doing at Word of Life and look forward to all that He has planned for the years to come.



From the beginning, we've always envisioned Word of Life as a fun, growing, relevant place where the Word of faith is taught and the spirit of faith is caught. We are convinced that when people connect with God, understand the Bible, and get a real revelation of Jesus, the Word, and who they are in Christ, everything changes!

We exist to help people make the connection—that's why we offer a variety of ministries. In addition to weekly services, we host special events and small groups that offer personal growth and connection to a thriving body of believers.

We welcome you to become a part of what God is doing here!
