CORE VALUES & CHURCH COMMITMENTS
The Authority of the Bible
We are Lakeside. We deeply value the Bible as the inspired Word of God and as the authority for belief and practice. We seek to read it transformationally, obey its teachings faithfully and share its truths patiently.
The Lordship of Jesus Christ
We are Lakeside. We deeply value the Lordship of Jesus Christ. While trusting Him to empower us, we strive to follow His example in selfless service to God and others so that "with one voice we might glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." (Rom 15:5).
We are Lakeside. We strive to remember that "all have sinned" the same sin. We strive to remember that our salvation is a gift of God's great grace and not what we deserve. We strive to make this truth known to all mankind.
We are Lakeside. We are loved by God. We will strive to demonstrate our love for God through actively giving ourselves away in loving service to others.
We are Lakeside. We commit ourselves to undergird everything we do with prayer. We commit ourselves to personal, small group, and corporate prayer. We entrust our lives and ministry to the all powerful hands and all knowing wisdom of our Heavenly Father.
The Great Commission
We are Lakeside. We are saved by God's grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. We commit ourselves personally and corporately to making this hope known to people of all nations.
We are Lakeside. Through His death in our place, Jesus Christ served our greatest need. In grateful appreciation, we commit ourselves to serving God through serving others.
