The Lakeside Missions Team, under God’s enabling and guidance, seeks to carry out the following mandate:
“To mobilize the people and resources of Lakeside into a God-centered service of compassionate evangelism.”
The Scriptural Basis for Lakeside’s Involvement in Missions
God’s will for His church as expressed in the Scriptures provides the basis and motivation for the congregation of Lakeside Baptist Church to reach out to a lost and hurting world in response to the following:
- To fulfill the Great Commission of Christ to make disciples throughout the world.
(Matthew 9:35-38; 28:18-20; John 4:35-38; Acts 1:8)
- To demonstrate Christ’s compassionate heart to those in need.
(Deuteronomy 15:7-11; Isaiah 58:5-11; 61:1-2; Matthew 25:31-46)
- To retrieve the spiritually lost.
- To encourage personal evangelism through relationship.
(1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
- To mobilize our resources so that all can hear and understand the gospel (good news) in their own language.
(Romans 10: 13-15)
There is a growing ‘Missions’ section at Lakeside Library containing valuable missions materials, including a very good small group study on integral mission called ‘Operation Worldview’. There is also a magazine rack in the library full of current and interesting materials we receive from several Missions organizations.
