This is the place to learn what we believe, discover our values and meet our staff.
Lakewood is a regional church that makes disciples of Jesus Christ locally, nationally and globally. We do this through a process we call E3. We invite you to Experience how God is at work through one of our weekly worship services. From there, we offer opportunities to Equip you to connect and grow in your relationship with Christ through small group discipleship. The third E is Engage. These are opportunities to serve and share with others how they can experience God in their own lives.
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 two distinct worship venues and small groups on and off campus.
