Our Mission & Beliefs
Our Mission and Vision
Church On The Lake exists for two primary goals.
1. To get people into relationship with God
2. To get MORE people into relationship with God!
What is a relationship with God?
Its a Covenant connection- Jesus died on the cross to create a covenant that provides everything we need to overcome in this life and to be prepared for the next life. We experience this by teaching and claiming his many promises for every situation.
It's an Intimate connection- God wants to draw us near to himself and provide us with his truth and love and leadership. We experience this through worship, prayer, bible study and fellowship with his people.
It's a Servanthood connection- God has put gifts inside of everyone of us and they are there to show the world He loves them and wants to bring them into relationship with Himself. We experience this by empowering Gods people to do the ministry with the gifts He puts in them.
