The following are the core beliefs of Lake Country Baptist Church based on the foundational truths taught in the bible.
The Bible is the written revelation of God. The Bible does not just contain the words of God but rather is the very Word of God proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ
There is only one living and true God. He has chosen to reveal Himself to His creation as a Trinity, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things.
Jesus Christ possesses all the divine attributes and is co-equal with the Father. He died for the sin of all mankind and is man's only pathway to God.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit possesses all the divine attributes and is co- equal with both the Father and the Son. His ministry is to reprove the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. 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.
Man is a direct creation of God. He was made in God's image, but lost that image through disobedience, bringing
Biblical salvation means to be eternally delivered from the wrath of God and the judgment of sin. God's power unto salvation is found in the gospel of Christ alone.
All believers are part of the Body of Christ. This body presents itself visibly today through local congregations as they assemble and work together for the testimony of the gospel of Christ in the world as His ambassadors.
Marriage & Sexuality
Marriage is sanctioned by God and joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union as defined in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman who are married [Genesis 2:24]. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage [1 Thessalonians 4:3-4; Hebrews 13:4].
