While we embrace any church that believes the Bible and declares that “Jesus is Lord!”, we also understand that each house of God has its own style, its own ministries, its own focus, and its own structure. In this section, we share a bit about who we are, what we believe, and what we value, in the hopes that it will give you a little more understanding of what Lakemount is all about.
We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God, fully complete and without error. We believe that the Bible contains all that is necessary to lead people to a knowledge of salvation and to live a righteous life. We believe it to be the ultimate authority in all matters of faith and Christian living.
We believe that Jesus is the divine Son of God, the only sacrifice for our sin, and our guarantee of God’s never-changing love for us. We believe that He died, rose again, and is now seated at the right hand of God. We believe that one day He will literally return to the earth to receive all those who have believed in Him.
We believe that people are eternal beings and will spend the rest of eternity after their life on earth either with God in eternal happiness (heaven) or without God in eternal sorrow (hell). We believe that through faith in Jesus, we are granted an eternity with God in heaven.
We believe that God, the Father, still speaks to His children today through His Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Holy Spirit will always agree with God’s Word. We believe that the Holy Spirit uses the recorded truths in the Bible to speak to the hearts of God’s children in order to lead them into the will of God for their lives.
The word “church” originally meant “gathering”. We believe that the church is not a building or a denomination, but rather the believers themselves who make up the church.
We believe that all Bible believing churches are part of God’s family and that we ought to share in ministry and fellowship with each other as the Spirit of God leads
