Here When The Fight Goes Down

We all face battles, but no one should have to face them alone. At Lake City Church, we fight shoulder to shoulder for the things that matter most. Read our Mission and Vision

For the Name and Fame of Jesus

Jesus is the hero of our story: On the cross, He defeated Satan, sin, death, and hell, so we could live victoriously in His power. He’s our ultimate Source for life, peace and joy in our lives.

For Your Purpose

Purpose-seekers are welcome here. This is a place to find your fire, whatever your past. It comes, not by “getting religion,” but through a growing relationship with Jesus and others.

For Your Family

Maximize your family’s potential, raise men and women (not boys and girls), and fortify all of your most important relationships (spouse, kids, friends, or whomever.)

For Our Community

We know the benefits of strong, reliable connections. Help us serve those around us well. Let’s be a blessing to the community where we belong.

For Our World

Our world is beautiful but broken. We partner with God and others to bring hope and healing in and beyond the Community ISD area. Find ways to help all year long.

We invite you to learn with us the ways of Jesus that lead to transformation, and join with other warriors fighting for what matters.

Our Mission

Making much of Jesus because Jesus changes everything.

Our Vision

We are a family of ordinary Christians who are extraordinarily committed to Jesus and His mission. Within the first 5 years of our launch, we plan to reach 100 lost people with the saving gospel of Jesus and plant at least 3 churches.

Our Strategy

Being with God
Becoming like Jesus
Doing what Jesus did

Our Core Values

Authentic and God-centered

We believe worship should be authentic and God-centered. We are worshipers who live all of life for the glory and fame of God through continual and conscious praise and exultation for who God is, what He has done, and what He has promised to do.

Having a Kingdom Mentality

We are not simply a gathering of Christians focused on ourselves, but we are servants of King Jesus, and we are called to serve God and one another, always seeking to have a kingdom mentality in all we think, do, and believe.

Acting with Gospel Urgency

People are dying and going to hell all around us every day, and we are God’s missionaries sent to proclaim the good news of salvation and freedom that can only be found in Jesus Christ. We must resolve to live our lives with gospel urgency for the glory of God and for the sake of the lost.

Nurturing and Equipping Families

We are a family who is bound together by the gospel, children of God, brothers and sisters who care for one another as a family. We strongly desire to nurture and equip families to live out the gospel in their own context as an extension of our faith family.

Church Planting
Sending Church Planting Teams

The most effective way to spread the gospel is to plant more churches, so we will spend much of our time and resources in an effort to discover, develop, and deploy church planters and church planting teams as often as possible.

What We Believe

  • The Bible
    The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us; and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.
  • God
    There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. God is all-powerful and all-knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things – past, present, and future – including the future decisions of His creatures. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. The eternal triune God has always, and will always, exist as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal relations, but without division of nature, essence, or being. God the Father God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving, and all wise. He is, from eternity, the Father of the Son, and through his redemptive plan becomes Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. God the Son Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God, taking upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identifying Himself completely with mankind, yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross He atoned for the sin of all who will believe in Him. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator – fully God, fully man – in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever-present Lord. God the Holy Spirit The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He inspired holy men of old to write the Scriptures. Through illumination He enables men to understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He calls men to the Savior, and effects regeneration. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church. He seals the believer unto the day of final redemption. His presence in the Christian is the guarantee that God will bring the believer into the fullness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
  • Man
    Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. In the beginning man was innocent of sin and was endowed by his Creator with freedom and power to will and to do that which is good and well-pleasing to God. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan man transgressed the command of God and fell from his original innocence whereby all born from Adam inherit an utterly sinful nature. Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God. The sanctity of human life is evident in the fact that God created man in His own image; therefore, every person of every race and age (from conception to death) possesses full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
  • Salvation
    Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man and is applied to all who repent of their sins and believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
  • God’s Purpose of Grace
    Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the free agency of man and comprehends all the means in connection with the end. It is the glorious display of God’s sovereign goodness and is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting and promotes humility. All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ and sanctified by His Spirit will never fall away from the state of grace but shall persevere to the end. Believers may fall into sin through neglect and temptation, whereby they grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, and bring reproach on the cause of Christ and temporal judgments on themselves; yet they shall be kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation. Those who profess faith but do not persevere, thereby show themselves to be unregenerate.
  • The Church
    A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Its scriptural officers are Elders and deacons. While both men and women are created equal in value and gifted for service in the church, the office of Elder is limited to men as qualified by Scripture. The New Testament speaks also of the church as the Body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all the ages, believers from every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.
  • Sacraments: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
    Christian baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s cleansing from sin and death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is to be done by immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a commemorative act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and the cup, remember the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming, and do then also inwardly by faith spiritually receive and feed upon Christ crucified, and all benefits of His death.
  • Last Things
    God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.
