OUR BELIEFS

What does LRC believe about the Scriptures?
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.

What does LRC believe about God?
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world.

What does LRC believe about humanity?
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts... we cannot be good enough.

What does LRC believe about salvation?
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. All of mankind is by their very nature under God's wrath. It is only through His divine calling that sinful mankind can become His children. Those He calls to salvation will place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.

What does LRC believe about the Christian life?
We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.

What does LRC believe about the church?
We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making him known to the lost world.

As a part of the SBC, we also ascribe to the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message
