Who We Are
We are a congregation of the Lord's church which holds the Bible in the highest regard, striving to follow Jesus' teaching to show His love to those around us. This means we do not hold any human creeds of doctrines as our standard, but instead look directly to the source - the Bible.
Our congregation is made up of people from all walks of life, which includes families with young children, teens, young adults, and seniors who all work together in unity. We reach out to those around us because we believe that Christ can make a difference in others the way He has made a difference in our lives!
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me. (John 14:23-24, NKJV)
The foundation of all our beliefs is the Bible. It is the basis for everything we do.
We are a congregation of Christians.
Teaching and Preaching
While history is full of great teachers, we do not claim allegiance to the doctrine of any human teacher as our foundation. The things written in the Bible were
written down over a span of 1,600 years,
not invented by the men who wrote them down,
rather they were given, by God, through inspiration.
These inspired men from different time periods carefully wrote the word of God. Many traditions formed after the Bible was written, but we strive to filter out those human traditions and simply use the Bible.
The qualified men of the Lakes Region congregation take turns in the responsibility of preaching and teaching God's word. All of our lessons are focused on the content of God's Word, and we aim to be true to God's intended meaning. While we may sometimes use additional study tools, we always evaluate them first for consistency with the teachings of the Bible. Please let us know if you have questions!
