Values

All Lochwood Teaching and Ministry is Bible-based and driven; we rely on God’s Word as we serve the church body, the community, and the World.

We love, support, and accept each other in holy fellowship, serving each other, and considering others more important than ourselves.

We serve our local community by acts of kindness, through evangelism, and by providing a safe place where physical and spiritual needs can be met.

We glorify God in all things, including worship that is authentic, enthusiastic, and spirit-filled.

We encourage and equip church members to serve God through intentional discipleship that includes prayer, Biblical teaching, spiritual gifts identification, and mentoring in ministry.

We Believe

... the Bible is the revealed Word of God: Inspired, inerrant, and the final authority for faith and practice.

... there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

... in the deity of Jesus Christ, His incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, substitutionary death for sinners, resurrection from the grave, and return to heaven.

... in the ministry of the Holy Spirit, Who convicts, regenerates, indwells, baptizes, enlightens, gifts, and empowers all believers for godly living.

... people were created in the image of God, but as a result of sin are lost and powerless to save themselves.

...in salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from good works or ceremonies.

... the church is the spiritual body of which Jesus Christ is the Head.

... in the resurrection, the eternal existence of all people whether in heaven or hell, and in divine judgments and rewards.
