Our Mission

LakeRidge Baptist Church exists to know God through His Word and Serve God by loving His people. From these passions, several key priorities arise.

Learning

At LakeRidge we believe “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, instruction” (2 Timothy 3:16). We intentionally seek to know God’s Word.

Loving

“And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more . . . that you may be sincere and without offense until the day of Christ” (Philippians 1:9-10). 

Discipling

“Exercise yourself toward godliness, for bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things” (1 Timothy 4:7-8).

Reaching

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations . . . teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).

While many churches seem to be interested in making services exciting or entertaining, at LakeRidge we believe a consistent diet of biblical truth produces the greatest basis for excitement in a child of God. At LakeRidge we do use programs to facilitate spiritual growth. We have Sunday School classes for every age.  We also have a ladies’ Bible study group and a men’s prayer breakfast.  We also offer Vacation Bible School during the summer. Within all the programs, however, our primary focus is spiritual development. Our central hope concerns spiritual growth of the people, not just numerical growth of the program. We want people to acquire a greater knowledge of God’s Word so that they might grow (1 Peter 2:2) and so that they will be prepared for ministry (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Visitors to LakeRidge frequently comment on the friendliness of our people. When you come to LakeRidge, expect to be welcomed warmly. We have greeters at the main entrances who will invite you into the building and help you find the right location for a class or worship service. Do not be surprised, though, when you encounter the same type of friendliness throughout the building.

LakeRidge places a priority on discipleship. Men’s discipleship groups have worked through books such as Disciplines of a Godly Man, by R. Kent Hughes and The Measure of a Man, by Gene Getz. We also have discipleship groups using the DiscipleWay curriculum that works to produce disciples through a multiplication process. A ladies group has worked through studies by Beth Moore and others.

From the passion for people, LakeRidge consistently focuses on missions. Missionary speakers from around the world visit regularly to share their work and allow us to participate directly in their ministry. In February each year, we host a Missions Banquet, featuring times of fellowship, worship, and preaching from various missionaries. LakeRidge also sends people on missionary trips during the summer months.

We hope you follow the Lord’s leadership in finding a church home. If the Lord leads you to visit with us, we believe you will find the characteristics of the church at Philippi operating within our congregation:

And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Philippians 1:9-11
