It is my firm conviction that the Lord has given your church a mission that should guide all that we undertake as the body of Christ:
*Our mission is to make disciples for Jesus Christ, touching generations with the power of the Gospel.
We also have a mission-focused vision statement that has helps us flesh out our purpose and future:
*We envision that Lakewood Baptist Church will be the center of our community, an island of peace and an outpost of grace, destroying the work of the evil one and being a positive influence for the Kingdom of God in the lives of future generations.
Please join me in focusing our prayers on the mission and vision that I believe our Lord has given our church.
In future sermons, teachings, and columns, we plan to expand on strategies to move us to the fulfillment of our mission and vision.
EXPECT to experience the power of the Living Lord every time we meet!
Our Lord’s servant, Pastor Terrell Boyd
