Discover Lake Church

There are five hills we believe are important to our purpose.

The Bible clearly states our purpose is to Glorify God and Pursue People (Psalm 96 and many other places). The New Testament also expresses some fundamental values a disciple of Christ should embody as he/she Glorifies God and Pursues People.


Pray over every member, every ministry, every nation and our city at every hour of every day.

(Acts 4.23-31; 9.40; 16.25; 20.34)


Own the responsibility of discipleship for the 976 weeks of a child’s life.

Radiate hospitality, resulting in the church being known as the community's home.

Our Beliefs

The Holy Bible is the inspired word of God and the basis for any statement of faith.

The Church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of “The Baptist Faith and Message” as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000. We band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the Good News of salvation to lost people. The ordinances of the church are baptism and the Lord’s Supper. As a local fellowship of believers, we at Lake Church hold to the following doctrinal beliefs and ask that all incoming members agree with the following statements of belief:

The Godhead  (The Trinity)

We believe in the one true and living God, the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things. God is Holy and in Him there is no sin. He is totally worthy of our worship and service. He is infinite, eternal, unchangeable, and is revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

God the Father

God, as Father, reigns over His entire universe with providential care. He is all-powerful, all-loving, and all-wise. He is fatherly in attitude toward all men but is Father, indeed, to those who have become children of God through Jesus Christ, who will deliver them into the Father’s hands. - Genesis 1:1 - 1 Chronicles 29:10 - Jeremiah 10:10 - Matthew 6:9 - Acts 1:7 - 1 Corinthians 8:6 15:24 - Ephesians 4:6

God the Son, Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co‑equal with the Father. Jesus, while upon the earth, was God revealed in the flesh. He was both fully God and fully man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life, died a substitutionary death on the cross, was resurrected bodily from the grave, ascended to heaven, and currently sits at the right hand of God. He is coming again personally and visibly to claim His bride, the Church, and will reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.. - Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; 52:12-53:12 - Zechariah 9:9 - Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 20:28; 26:37 39 - John 1:1-18; 1:29-34; 10:30 - Acts 1:9-11 - Romans 1:3-4 - 1 Corinthians 15:3,4 - 1 Timothy 6:14,15 - Titus 2:13 - Hebrews 4:14

The Bible

We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were “moved by the Holy Spirit” to write the very words of Scripture. The Bible is therefore without error (inerrant) in its original manuscripts. God has supernaturally preserved the Bible and it is the sole and final authority for faith and life, providing encouragement, guidance, comfort and instruction for training in righteousness. - 2 Timothy 3:16-17 - 2 Peter 1:20-21


We believe man is made in the spiritual image and likeness of God, to be like Him in character. Man is the supreme object of God’s creation. However, through the original disobedience of the first humans, mankind fell from His creator and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death. He became corrupt in his whole nature through an attitude of disobedience God calls sin. Because every person is marred by sin, all of mankind is therefore separated from God and without hope apart from salvation in Jesus Christ. - Genesis 1:1 - 1 Chronicles 29:10 - Jeremiah 10:10 - Matthew 6:9 - Acts 1:7 - I Corinthians 8:6, 15:24 - Ephesians 4:6


We believe the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for forgiveness of sins and salvation, which is the free gift of God’s grace. Salvation is effected by the regeneration work of the Holy Spirit and cannot be secured by man’s works or personal merit. Salvation is only appropriated by a person placing his faith in the finished work of Christ. Once a person has trusted Christ, they are “sealed by the Holy Spirit unto the day of redemption” and the Lord continually works out His salvation in Him by making them more like Himself. Salvation will, one day, be culminated when we are in Heaven with Christ. - Ephesians 1:7 13-14 - John 1:12-13; 3:1-7, 14-16 - 2 Corinthians 5:17 - Romans 1:16; 10:9-10 - Ephesians 2:8-10 4:30 - Romans 8:14-17, 31-39 - John 10:27-29, 14:6 - Acts 26:20 - 1 Peter 1:3‑5

The Church

We believe the church (composed of all believers throughout the world) is the spiritual organism of which Christ is the Head. The local church (a portion of the body of Christ) is an autonomous (self-ruled) group of believers who have organized themselves to do the work of God’s ministry. The church exists to worship God, disciple and care for believers, and to evangelize a lost world. The two church ordinances in which all believers are to participate are water baptism (by immersion) and the Lord’s Supper. - Matthew 3:13-17; 16:13-19; 28:18-20 - Mark 14:22-26 - Acts 2:38; 8:38-39; 18:8; 20:17-18,28 - Romans 6:1-5 - 1 Corinthians 11:23-34 - Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:23 - 1 Timothy 3:1-7 - Titus 1:5-11 - 1 Peter 5:12
