About LCBC
We are committed to building the Kingdom of God through a community that handles truth biblically and historically; spiritually and intellectually, philosophically and relationally.

Whether you have been at Lakeside for many years, or if you're visiting for the first time, we are so glad you're here.  We want to serve you in every way we can.

We offer English and Spanish worship services and Bible studies.  You will find people from Mexico, Canada, Europe, and many of the United States among the congregation here.

Our style is informal and friendly.  You never need to dress up for church here.  But if you want to, nobody will mind that, either.  We think that worship depends more on the openness of our hearts than the style of our clothes.

This is a church where people meet with God.  We know the Good News about Jesus Christ, and we believe it's our job to share it - with everyone.  "Good tidings of great joy for all people."

LCBC is a unique church serving a unique group of people. You will find people from Mexico, Canada, Europe and many of the United States among the family here. We offer English and Spanish worship services and Bible studies. About half our folks live here year round. The other half have homes elsewhere as well. 

In order to accommodate our many part-time residents, LCBC has a “dual membership” policy, which allows that you may commit to membership here, while maintaining membership in another church. How can you belong to LCBC? 

First, most importantly, commit your life to Jesus Christ. Then, if you are a member of a church with similar beliefs, simply ask to join. Or ask to be baptized as a symbol of your commitment to Jesus and to this church. 

Why become a member?

You are certainly welcome at LCBC whether or not you choose to become a member. But if you feel God has called you here, you need to be involved in the business and leadership of this church. And that will require membership.
