WHO WE ARE

“Claimed by Christ...Committed to Community...Called to Serve.”


Lake Avenue Baptist Church is a Christ-centered, diverse, urban, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-lingual, mission-driven congregation of gifted and caring people. We welcome, unconditionally, all seekers of Christ’s love and direction: women, men, children, youth; people of diverse ages, races, histories, abilities and sexual orientations. We are American Baptist, with historically strong neighborhood and ecumenical commitments. We are:


  * Claimed by Christ: We are God’s own and are not here by chance. We open ourselves to God’s Light and Love. We look to the Bible for guidance, and we respond to Christ’s call to discipleship.

* Committed to Community: As members of Christ’s Body, we are as family. We gather for creative and meaningful worship, helpful support and spiritual growth. We are building an open, welcoming, caring and respectful community. We uphold Baptist principles and support strong ecumenical and interfaith ties.

  * Called to Serve: We respond to Christ’s call by sharing our gifts in acts of service. We reach out as a church to our neighborhood, our city, and beyond. We go into the world to do justice, make peace, and share God’s love.
