Lake Country Christian Church
Wait, isn't every church a "Christian Church"?
At Lake Country Christian Church, we believe that people who trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior should worship, fellowship, and celebrate communion — together. This is how the early church is described in Acts 2. Unfortunately, in the past, some churches emphasized differences between Christians and did not allow believers to take communion or be baptized unless they were members of that church. The "Christian Church" denomination was formed in response to this disunity. Even though many churches today no longer enforce such strict rules of membership, we still hold communion during every Sunday as a sign of open fellowship among believers.
WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?
Key Verse: Mission Statement
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
To God be the glory, great things he has done!
We seek to draw positive attention toward God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in all we do. We believe the Bible is Holy scripture and
"useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness." The Bible equips us for "every good work" that we might bring glory to God (1 Timothy 3:16-17).
GOD AND HIS WORD
For God so loved the world that he sent his Son...
All people are made by God, in his likeness (Genesis 1:26-27). We honor God when we value and serve people in our church, neighborhoods, and communities — and it's our joy to fill needs we see and share the Good News of new life in Christ Jesus. We also support missionaries and groups caring for people around the world.
...to adopt us into his family.
God wants us to know what it means to be a beloved son or daughter. He created human families to be an example of what that should be like. Our church strives to teach and equip families – whether you are a parent, child, married or single – to understand and fill the place you have in the family of God (Psalm 127). We minister to children and youth and support strong, healthy marriages.
The Bible teaches that those who repent and trust Jesus as their Savior should then be baptized (Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38). We practice full-immersion baptism following the example set by Jesus (Matthew 3:13-17).
Communion is part of our church service when those who trust Jesus remember his death and new life (1 Corinthians 11:23-32). If you don't know Jesus or aren't sure you trust him, do not feel pressured to participate. Instead, use the time to reflect and pray.
