What We Believe At Lakeside Christian Church

  • The Tri-une God

    We believe in one God, eternally existing in three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • Revelation

    God has graciously disclosed his existence and power in the created order, and has supremely revealed himself to fallen human beings in the person of his Son, the incarnate Word.
  • Creation of Humanity

    We believe that God created human beings, male and female, in his own image. Adam and Eve belonged to the created order that God himself declared to be very good, serving as God’s agents to care for, manage, and govern creation, living in holy and devoted fellowship with their Maker.…
  • The Fall

    We believe that Adam, made in the image of God, distorted that image and forfeited his original blessedness—for himself and all his progeny—by falling into sin through Satan’s temptation.
  • The Plan of God

    We believe that God justifies and sanctifies those who by grace have faith in Jesus, and that he will one day glorify them—all to the praise of his glorious grace.
  • The Gospel

    We believe that the gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ—God’s very wisdom.
  • The Redemption of Christ

    We believe that, moved by love and in obedience to his Father, the eternal Son became human: the Word became flesh, fully God and fully human being, one Person in two natures.
  • The Justification of Sinners

    We believe that Christ, by his obedience and death, fully discharged the debt of all those who are justified. By his sacrifice, he bore in our stead the punishment due us for our sins, making a proper, real, and full satisfaction to God’s justice on our behalf.
  • The Power of the Holy Spirit

    We believe that this salvation, attested in all Scripture and secured by Jesus Christ, is applied to his people by the Holy Spirit.
  • The Kingdom of God

    We believe that those who have been saved by the grace of God through union with Christ by faith and through regeneration by the Holy Spirit enter the kingdom of God and delight in the blessings of the new covenant: the forgiveness of sins, the inward transformation that awakens a desire to glorify, trust, and obey God, and the prospect of the glory yet to be revealed.
  • God’s New People

    We believe that God’s new covenant people have already come to the heavenly Jerusalem; they are already seated with Christ in the heavenlies.
  • Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

    We believe that baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordained by the Lord Jesus himself.
  • The Restoration of All Things

    We believe in the personal, glorious, and bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ with his holy angels, when he will exercise his role as final Judge, and his kingdom will be consummated.
