Join us!
WHO WE ARE:
We are a church that remembers what it is like to be searching -- and if that is where you are, we would be honored to have the privilege of introducing you to our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ. As you start on your journey in this new direction, we are passionate about coming alongside, helping you become a disciple of Christ.  We believe He meets us where we are at; but thankfully, He doesn’t leave us this way! 
 
So whether you are new to church or have been following Jesus for years, FBCL has a place for you.  We have many opportunities to connect, grow and be encouraged!  
 
MISSION STATEMENT:
We exist to exalt Jesus Christ as Lord -- by seeking, teaching & caring for the people in our church, community and world.
 
LOOKS LIKE:
As we seek to exalt Jesus Christ as Lord, we are purposeful about developing Christ followers who love God and love people. Small groups are the heartbeat of FBCL, allowing people to connect relationally and grow into Christ-likeness. Appropriation of Truth results in lives that overflow outside of the four church walls, into the home, the community and world.
 
FIRST LOOK:
A great opportunity to find out why we do what we do here at FBC Lakewood is to attend our First Look class, taught every other month.  It is a more intimate setting, getting to know our pastors and who we really are.  In the meantime, here is brief glimpse, into our vision, and key beliefs.
 

 
VISION:
We want to become a dynamic, life-transforming, community-ministering, body of believers.  We want to spiritually impact our city for Christ, through effective ministries, attractive facilities and friendly caring people.  We want our members to value what the Lord values and to share this same vision.
BELIEFS AND VALUES:
GOD:
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God.
(Scripture:  Genesis 1:1,26,27, 3:22;  Psalm 90:2;  Matthew 28:19;1 Peter 1:2;  2 Corinthians 13:14)
 
JESUS CHRIST:
Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross.  He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death.  He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
(Scripture:  Matthew 1:22, 23;  Isaiah 9:6;  John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15;  1 Corinthians 15:3,4;  Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15;  Titus 2:13)
 
HOLY SPIRIT:
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.  He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved.  As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
(Scripture:  2 Corinthians 3:17;  John 16:7-13, 14:16,17;  Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16;  Ephesians 1:13; Galations 5:25; Ephesians 5:18)
 
BIBLE:
The Bible is God’s Word to us.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.  Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
(Scripture:  2 Timothy 3:16;  2 Peter 1:20,21;  2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6;  Proverbs 30:5)
PEOPLE:
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character.  People are the supreme object of God’s creation.  Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”.   This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
(Scripture:  Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2)
 
SALVATION:
Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it.  We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty.  When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
(Scripture:  Romans 6:23;  Ephesians 2:8,9;  John 14:6, 1:12;  Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26;  Romans 5:1)
 
ETERNAL SECURITY:
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.  If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it.  Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.  It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.
(Scripture:  John 10:29;  2 Timothy 1:12;  Hebrews 7:25, 10:10,14;  1 Peter 1:3-5)
 
ETERNITY:
People were created to exist forever.  We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.  To be eternally separated from God is Hell.  To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life.  Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
(Scripture:  John 3:16;  John 14:17;  Romans 6:23;  Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15;  1 Cor. 2:7-9)
