We are Sinners

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23)

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: (Romans 3:10)

We Can't

…there is none that doeth good, no, not one. (Romans 3:12)

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags…. (Isaiah 64:6)

God Can

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

Accept God's Gift

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Romans 10:9)


What do we believe?

We are an independent, fundamental Baptist church and we hold strongly to the fundamentals of our faith. The Bible is our sole authority in matters of a faith and practice. If you have a question or a specific area in which you would like to understand more about what we believe, please check our statement of faith below or ask us a question.

Worldwide Missions

Jesus told us to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. While all of us cannot go around the world, we can all have a part in helping those God has called to go abroad preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Lakewood’s missions program does just that. As a church, Lakewood supports missionaries around the world through the Faith Promise giving of its members.
