The mission of Lakeview Baptist Church is summed up in our ten core values. It is our desire to fulfill the Great Commission by having a balanced approach to ministry. Christ’s mandate to His church is simple:
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. Matthew 28:18-20
Our Core Values
Authentic Worship. Exalting the Savior through praise and worship that is grounded in the Biblical message of absolute truth.
Believing Prayer. Having unshakable faith that when we pray to God, He hears our prayers and answers them according to His perfect will.
Bible Centered. Offering God’s infallible Word through teaching and preaching. The Bible is relevant for today and is an inexhaustible source for life’s situations.
Growing Families. Helping families to learn and apply the Word of God to everyday life. As families grow numerically and spiritually, our fellowship is dedicated to supplying them the scriptural knowledge base they need to flourish.
Intentional Evangelism. Seeking to develop relationships with individuals and families in order to have an opportunity to introduce Jesus Christ. The world is seeking true happiness. Jesus is the only way to have joy and happiness.
International Missions. Having a world-view of how God is working on a global scale. Christian believers are found throughout the world. God wants His people to know how the Kingdom of God reaches out in all directions.
Loving Fellowship. Reminding our members that God love unconditionally. In the same manner, God wants His people to exhibit unconditional love. We should not require people to achieve our love through works; instead, God’s grace should be at the foundation of our love for everyone.
Practical Discipleship. Living in this world is difficult. As believers grow in Christ, it is crucially important for us to have a discipleship plan that enables us to learn how to live victoriously in this present age.
Sacrificial Service. Serving others in Jesus’ name. This should be every Christian’s desire. As we give ourselves away through serving others, we reflect Christ’s sacrificial life.
Spiritual Unity. Loving one another. Serving one another. Considering others before we consider our own needs. Having a mindset that all persons matter. Every human soul is valuable. We must seek unity within the fellowship. This is made possible through grace and forgiveness.
