Lakeside Community Fellowship began in January 2019 with approximately 40 people committed to the idea of seeing God glorified in a way that is honest, welcoming, loving and biblical. We’re moving forward as a body, focusing on growing in our knowledge and understanding of God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. We rely on the guidance of God the Holy Spirit as we study and learn from the Word of God
We believe there is only one true and living God, perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We are a non-denominational community church that believes in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. We believe that every person is born in sin and has need of God’s forgiveness. This forgiveness is available because of God’s love, grace and mercy and is freely granted through personal repentance from sin and faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. The Bible calls this “being born again.” We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, given by inspiration of God and is without error in the original documents.
We practice a biblical model of leadership, which includes elders and deacons who oversee the body, of whom Christ is the head. Alan Pohl, one of our elders, functions in a pastoral role and is responsible for the majority of preaching as well as leading the ministry team. Alan has served in various church leadership roles over the years and was recently ordained in Canada. David Powell is a teaching elder who preaches when needed and has extensive experience in a variety of church leadership roles. All of our leaders combine their years of experience with a desire to serve the body of believers as well as the community.
Serving Christ - Serving the community.
We preach and teach the word of God as revealed in the Holy Scriptures and communicate the gospel, the “Good News” of Jesus Christ, whenever we have the opportunity as well as seeking to help people in the communities around us with their physical and spiritual needs.
