Statement of Belief
Lakeland Family Church is a
These are beliefs which we hold to be true and
are common to Christians world-wide:
We believe in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, are inspired by God, and contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.
We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to do evil.
We believe that those who fail to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior are lost.
We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.
We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to salvation, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.
We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.
If you have questions about our beliefs we would love to engage in a conversation with you about them. We feel strongly about our stance of faith and have a desire to share it with all. If you have a question – please don’t hesitate to ask.
