Our Mission

The mission of the Lakeside church is to be God's people today.  

Our desire is to please God by serving, knowing, praising and bringing others to him.

Purpose Statement

Our purpose is to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and be his people today.  We want to become disciples of Jesus.  We want to bring our community to know him through the power and vitality of the gospel.  We are trying to represent Jesus in our world.

Ministry Philosophy

Our philosophy to ministry is to accents building relationship with each other and God.  We have an emphasis on reaching out to people.  We are concerned with meeting needs.  We have a focus on equipping people for ministry and life.  We use the team approach to life and ministry.  We try to maintain a sacrificial spirit.

Our Vision

  • The dream is to be a church that lives to be God's people today.  A place where you can ask questions, find friends, and experience a relationship with God.  A family where people belong.  A place of encouragement that helps everyone use their talents.
  • The vision is for us to have a growing atmosphere.  A place where daily evangelism happens and people are finding Jesus for the first time, or come back to him, and become more like him.
  • Our hope is to bring our community to become like Jesus through caring ministry and biblical teaching.  A place where committed followers of God are involved in each other's lives.  A spiritually maturing church.
  • Our prayer is that people will know we are God's by our love for one another and the way we treat our neighbors.
  • Our dream continues as God brings others into our village and continue to mold us into his kingdom.
