WHY DO WE SUPPORT MISSIONS?

"We at Lakeview Christian Church believe that involvement in missions is not optional: It is what the church is all about. Jesus said in Matthew 28:19-20, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." The importance of this command is again stressed when it is repeated four additional times (Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:47; John 20:21; Acts 1:8).

What oxygen is to fire, missions are to the church. As fire exists by burning, so the church exists by missions. No missions, no church. The missions committee strives to provide education for the congregation concerning the ministry and needs of its missionaries through regular monthly reports.

 

We must always be mindful of our responsibility as a local church to take the glorious message of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom to our world!

 

Lakeview supports several ministries throughout the world. We offer to support to local ministries as well as missionaires across the globe. If you would like to learn more about any of the missions we support, simply click on the name of the mission in the green box.

 

SHORT TERM MISSIONS

We encourage short term mission trips as well. The primary purpose of such trips is to cultivate interest in mission work. This is accomplished through arranging direct exposure and experience in the mission field for congregation members. This experience has led to growth and excitement through the understanding of other cultures and people and their need of love for Jesus. The enthusiasm gained through these trips has contagiously spread throughout the congregation. We have recently taken trips to Mexico, Brazil, Barbados and Joplin. Several future trips area already being planned.

Christian Education

In addition to supporting missionaries, Lakeview Christian Church also strongly believes in the value of Christian Education. We financially support three colleges, Cincinnati Christian University, Kentucky Christian University and Milligan College. We faithfully support these colleges and have entered into Covenant Church programs with both KCU and CCU.
