Our Mission & Vision

The Lake City Community Church family places great value on worshiping God with our lives, serving one another through community and discipleship, and serving others in the world as Jesus served us. Below are our mission and vision statements which are based on the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20) and the Great Commandment (Matt. 22:36-40).


Our Mission: 

To Advance God's Kingdom by making fully devoted

followers of Christ in Lakewood and the world


Our Vision: 

To be a Christ-honoring community that is passionate

about loving God, one another, and the world

What we believe

The Bible :

The Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired, so that it is without error in the original manuscripts

and preserved by God to be our divinely authoritative standard.


God:

The Godhead exists eternally in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are one God.


Creation:

God is the absolute and sole Creator of the universe. Creation was by divine will and purpose, not through

evolutionary process.


Jesus Christ:

God sent Christ into the world to save sinners. Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man. He was born

of a virgin and lived a sinless life. He was crucified, died to pay the penalty for our sins, and was raised from

the dead on the third day.Later He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is head of the church, and

prays for believers. In the future Christ is coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to set up His

Kingdom.


Salvation:

The shed blood of Christ made a complete atonement for sin.We believe that such salvation with its

forgiveness of sins, gift of a new nature and promise of eternal life, is accepted by faith and is entirely apart

from good works, baptism, or church membership. A true believer is eternally secure. He cannot lose His

salvation, but sin may interrupt the joy of his relationship with God and bring the loving discipline of his

Heavenly Father.


Holy Spirit:

The Holy Spirit indwells all believers and baptizes, fills, gifts, and seals them at the moment of salvation.


After Death:

All who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Christ, and at death their spirits depart to be with Christ. At

the rapture their bodies will be raised in the likeness of Christ and dwell forever in His divine presence.


Spiritual Growth:

It is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God, prayer, sharing of the gospel, giving of time, talents, and money, and utilizing Spiritual gifts.
