Our Core Values:

  • BIBLE EXPOSITION - We believe the Bible is the unchanging and authoritative Word of God. Because of this we practice biblical exposition (preaching sections of scripture in context) in our preaching ministry, believing it is the most effective way of communication the gospel and teaching truth. 
     
  • MULTI-ETHNIC & MULTI-CULTURAL - We believe in a multi-ethnic church and are committed to reach the many different ethnicities in our community and embrace multi-cultural expressions of church life and worship.
     
  • EVANGELISM AND DISCIPLESHIP THROUGH THE LOCAL CHURCH - We believe in evangelism and discipleship and seek to create a culture of evangelizing the lost locally and globally; and equipping the saved resulting in the multiplication of disciples who make disciples.
     
  • BIBLICAL COMMUNITY - The Church is not a building, but a community of believers. As such, we are to live in fellowship and community with one another as we share and live life together as God’s Church here on earth.
     
  • HOSPITALITY - Hospitality is more than being nice or showing off what you have, it is opening up your home and life to others for the sake of the gospel. At Lakeshore Church we believe practicing hospitality is the catalyst for transforming community and discipleship. 
     
  • BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW - We believe Christianity is not merely a religion, it is also a lifestyle, a philosophy; a worldview. We are to think biblically about every aspect of our lives. It is only through filtering our life choices using the Word of God as our filter that we will understand, develop, and practice a Biblical Worldview. 
     
  • FAMILY-EQUIPPING MINISTRY - We believe in family, that children are a blessing and that parents can disciple their children for the glory of the Lord.  At Lakeshore Church we desire to minister to Children and Students through age-graded ministries; and to equip parents to disciple their children by loving Jesus, leading well, and living the gospel.
     
  • ADOPTION AND FOSTER CARE - We believe in adoption and foster care as tangible ways to manifest God’s kingdom here on earth. At Lakeshore Church we seek to help those families who are interested in pursuing adoption and those desiring to provide a loving foster home for children in need. In addition, we desire to offer a support system for families who have adopted, and those who are providing foster care.
     
  • COMMUNITY MINISTRY - We believe in reaching our community with the gospel. Lakeshore Church is committed to engage and invest in our community through community initiatives, outreach, and service, believing the gospel has the power to transform a community.  
     
  • NEXT GENERATION LEADERSHIP - We believe the current generation has a responsibility to invest in the next generation. At Lakeshore Church we want to intentional engage college students and young professionals as we seek to prepare the next generation to advance the gospel and impact the kingdom. 
     
  • CHURCH PLANTING AND MISSIONS - We believe in Church Planting and Missions as the most effective means to evangelize the lost. Through Church Planting residencies, national and international mission partnerships, Lakeshore Church is committed to gospel advance locally, nationally and globally. 
     
  • TEAM LEADERSHIP - We promote and model churches having a team of pastor-teachers who share the corporate teaching & shepherding responsibilities.
