ABOUT THE LAKESIDE CHURCH
OUR MISSION AND VISION
The Lakeside Church is a community of believers devoted to the Word of God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to love and build up one another, and to reach people with the life-giving Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We gather together to worship Jesus as Lord and Saviour. We are motivated to grow in faith and encourage one other to use our gifts for God’s purposes. We are equipped to go and share the good news of freedom, hope and new life in Jesus Christ with our community, country and the world.
OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
The Lakeside Church is affiliated with the Independent Assemblies of God International (Canada).
The Bible in its entirety is the inspired Word of God and the only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
In Christ’s great commission to the Church to go into all the world and preach the Gospel.
In one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His Virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.
In complete salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and obedience to the Gospel by repentance of sins and baptism by immersion in water.
In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
In the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.
