What We Believe
To say we are Presbyterian means simply that our church is governed by elders. We have elders who lead and rule the church and our pastors make up 2 of our 14 elders.
To say we are evangelical means we are driven by the gospel and the Great Commission to share our faith.
Lakeside strives to be a, “Gospel-Driven, Mission-Centered, Family of Believers."
You can read about about Our Essentials of faith below. All members of Lakeside believe these things.
Another resource for understanding our convictions would be the Westminster Confession of Faith all elders at lakeside believe these things.

This is the motto of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. All members of Lakeside believe in the essentials.
