Who We Are

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and windows in their afflication, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.  James 1:27

James 1:27 is our missions statement at Lake Country Christian Church. We love God, so we strive for moral purity. We love people, so we seek ways to care for the local community, those suffering overseas, and to care for the environment.

We Value God and His Word

The Glory of God is very important to us at Lake County Christian Church. We seek to draw positive attention toward God in everything we do  (1 Corinthians 10:31}. This is key to our own happiness as well. We desire for God to be glorified in all nations on earth, so we supprt and send missionaries there.

We Value People

We value people so we serve the community and share the gospel. If we see a need in the community, it's our joy to fill it. Also, because following Jesus is the only way to spend eternity with God in heaven, it is important to us that we send missionaries to the unreached people groups.

We Value Family

God values family so we value family. Not only do we ministrer to children and youth as a congregation, but we make it a priority to equip parents to train their children in the way they should go and to have a strong marriage.

Who We are

 

The Christian Church/Church of Christ churches grew out of the Reformation movement which was a movement that sought to restore the church to the New Testament.

The Restoration movement focused on unity amoung Bible believing Christians by moving away from man made divisions and traditions in the church and toward the early church as described in the book of Acts. Two important quotes of the Christian Church are "We are Christians only, but not the only Christians" and "We have no creed but Christ, no book but the Bible, no name but the name Christian."

In a time where each denomination believed they were the only true Christians, the Christain Churches began celebrating an open communion weekly to show unity amoung the denominations.

                     "For  as  often  as  you  eat  this  bread and  drink  the cup,                                           you  proclaim the Lord's  death  until  he  comes."  

                                                     1 Corinthians  11:26

Another important doctrine in Christian Churches is full submersion baptism as was practiced by the early church.

"Do  you not  know that all of us who have been baptized into  Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised  from the dead by the glory  of the Father, we too might walk in  newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in resurrection  like  his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so                            that we would no longer be enslaved to sin."                              Romans 6:3-6

Finally, each Christian Church assembly is independent and under the authority of the local eldership.
