Helping kids begin and grow with Jesus.
Lake Country Kids has environments designed for all ages. It is our desire that you as the parent feel comfortable dropping off your kids, knowing they will be in a safe environment filled with volunteers focused on helping them begin and grow in their relationship with Jesus. Our classes are open for drop off ten minutes before services start.
Atmosphere at Lake Country
Both the 9:15am and 11:00am worship services are the same service offered at two different times. LC has been blessed with a very gifted group of singers and musicians that lead us in worship every week. We desire worship to be an opportunity for God to prepare our hearts for His Word. Our worship is a mixture of different songs and styles.
Our approach to the Bible
We believe the Bible is The Word of God. From the beginning to the end we believe that the Bible is all about Jesus. Every time that the Bible is preached we desire to offer both a doctrinal understanding as well as a practical application.
There is only one true Godwho has made Himself known through the Godhead(Father, Son and Holy Spirit) (Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9). He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. We believe in the Trinity in unity. (Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 4:35; John 1:1-4; 10:30-31)
Jesus Christ is of the Godhead. Jesus was God manifested in the flesh. (Exodus 3:14; John 8:58; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16) He was virgin born (Matthew 1:23) and perfectly sinless. He came to His own to confirm the covenants and promises between the God and Israel and to reveal the reality of sin as a condemning power in the life of all men (John 3:16-18). He died for the sin of all mankind and is the only pathway to God (John 14:6; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 2:9).
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is of the Godhead. (Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:35)His present ministry is to reprove the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment (John 16:8) His presence today is found in all believers to enlighten them to the glories of Christ through an understanding of the written word of God. He edifies convicts, empowers and comforts the believer. The Holy Spirit indwells and seals all believers at the point of regeneration. Evidence of His indwelling in confirmed in the Christian through an internal witness. (Romans 8:16; Galatians 5:22)
Is a created being and now holds the position of the god of this world. (2 Corinthians 4:4) He is the fatherof all who will not receive the truth concerning the person of Jesus Christ. (John 8:31-59; 10:30-33) His desire has always been to displace the Godhead as the final authority in the creation. His work will always challenge the authority of Godhead, particularly concerning the word of God and will include this thought: yea hath God said? (Genesis 3:1)
Man is a direct creation of God. He was made in God's image but lost that image through disobedience. Man is now born in the image of Adam (Genesis 5:3) and must be born again to see and enter the kingdom of God (John 3:3-7) Man, in this natural state is ungodly and the enemy> of God and totally without strength to reconcile his relationship to God (Romans 3:10-18; 5:6-10).
Biblical salvation means to be delivered from the wrath of God and the judgment of sin. (John 3:36; 1 Timothy 1:15) Salvation is found in the message and ministry of Jesus Christ alone (Romans 1:16) Jesus, the Christ, came to seek and save the lost. He paid for the sins of the world through His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. His precious and perfect blood was the very blood of God (Acts 20:28) and was sufficient to pay for the penalty of sin and its consequences of eternal death and ultimate separation from God in Hell. God, (Godhead) has provided by His grace, this gift of salvation (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9) to all who will, by simple faith, confess with their mouth out of a heart felt belief an acceptance of the work of Jesus Christ as sufficient for their forgiveness. (Romans 10:9-13). We believe that the word of God is clear concerning the security of this salvation once received. The born again child of God has been sealed to God for all time through the indwelling presence of the Spirit of God. (Ephesians 1:13-14; Philippians 1:6)
Heaven and Hell
Death is a beginning not an end. We believe heaven and hell are real places. They are not a state of mind. The saved go to heaven. The lost are doomed in hell and ultimately the Lake of Fire. (Luke 16:22-24; Revelation 20:14-15)
We believe all saved people become part of the household of faith in general (Galatians 6:10) and are members of the Body of Christ in particular (1 Corinthians 12:27) and that the Body of Christ presents itself visibly today through local congregations (Galatians 1:2) for the edification and accountability of believers. Each local congregation is autonomous in its government and recognizes two offices in leadership, that of Pastor and Deacon.
We believe that baptism is our identification with death burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and is foremost spiritual in its presentation. (Romans 6:3-5; 1 Corinthians 12:13) We believe in the full immersion of new believers in water, not as a provision for their salvation, but rather as a picture of this identification.
We believe the Lord's Supper is to be practiced in the local church and demonstrates the unity among believers in Jesus Christ. It is to be considered as a remembrance of the death, burial, resurrection and return of Jesus Christ and is to lead us towards a greater unity in our relationships one with another. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
The Bible does not contain the word of God but rather are the very words of God and the message of Jesus Christ (Luke 24:44-49; John 5:39-40) and His authority over sin (Matthew 1:21; Mark 2:7; Acts 13:38; Hebrews 9:26-28; 10:12) and His claim to an earthly throne (Matthew 19:28; Luke 1:32; Acts 2:30). God's words have been preserved without error for every generation. (Psalm 12:6-7) The Bible is inspired through the work of the Godhead (Holy Spirit) (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21) and has the power to reveal and discern the thoughts and intents of the hearts of men. (Hebrews 4:12) It is to be studied and rightly divided (2 Timothy 2:15)
Jesus Christ is the rightful heir to the throne of this world (Acts 2:29-36). The physical world will not know peace until the promise of His return is fulfilled. We believe the body of Christ will be delivered from the wrath of God which is to come and will be brought before the judgment seat of Christ, not to consider their salvation but rather to consider theirlife in Christ (Romans 14:10-12; 1 Corinthians 3:11-15; 2 Corinthians 5:10) We are pre-tribulationin our understanding of this deliverance. (1 Thessalonians 1:10: 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) This physical deliverance of the Body of Christ will be followed by seven years of tribulation (Jacob's trouble - Jeremiah 30:7) in which the nation of Israel will suffer at the hands of the gentile nations under the direction of the god of this world as he seeks to prove God to be a liar by not fulfilling His promises and covenants to Israel (yea hath God said?). Satan's servant, the Antichrist will rise to power, only to be destroyed by the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ. Satan himself will be bound for one thousand years as Jesus Christ sets upon the throne of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth in Jerusalem (Millennium). At the end of the thousand years, Satan will be loosed and will lead a rebellion against Jesus Christ. Satan's armies will be destroyed quickly and Satan himself will be cast into the lake of fire. The great white throne judgment will take place after the judgment of Satan; death, hell all those who are not found in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire suffering the second death. There will be a new heaven and a new earth where righteousness will reign for ever and ever! (Revelation 20; 21)
