Our beliefs and the good news of God’s plan to bring man kind back into a right relationship with Him, are clearly described in the pages of the Bible. At Lakeside Christian Church we believe that God intended for His plan to be spread through genuine, honest, loving relationships both within the community of Christians and in our local community of friends and neighbors. When people see that the fruit of our lives matches the message from our lips, they will believe that our message is truly from God and give Him the glory. (Matt. 5:14-16; John 13:34-35)
