What We Believe

The Bible: We believe the entire bible is inspired by God without error and the authority in which we base our Faith, Conduct and Doctrine. It is life changing and relevant to our every day lives. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:3; Hebrew 4:12

The Holy Spirit: We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God who came to this earth as Savior of the world. The Holy Spirit is God himself encouraging, guiding, and transforming us in the way of Christ. Acts 2:4; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1 Corinthians 12:13

Salvation: We believe Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed his blood for our sins. We believe that salvation is found by repenting of our sins and placing our faith in what Jesus did for us on the cross. Jesus rose from the dead and is coming again. Salvation is a gift from God and it cannot be earned through our own efforts. Galatians 2:20; Matthew 28:5-6; Acts 2:21; Acts 4:12

Water Baptism: We practice baptism of the repentant believer by immersion in water. We believe water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 3:11; Matthew 28:18-19; Act 22:16

Communion: We believe in the regular taking of Communion as an act of remembering what the Lord Jesus did for us on the cross. Luke 22:13, 19, 20

Child Dedication: We believe in parents making a public declaration to raise their child in a Christ-centered home, including a commitment of support from their Lakeside Worship Center family. Jeremiah 29:11
