Lakewood is a regional church that makes disciples of Jesus Christ locally, nationally and globally. On April 22, 1956, several Christian families stepped out on faith to establish Lakewood Baptist Church. This fellowship has grown from 175 members to more than 2500, filling three distinct worship venues and small groups on and off campus.
