Jesus said, "Give to others, and God will give to you. You will receive a full measure, a generous helping, poured into your hands--all that you can hold. The measure you use for others is the one that God will use for you." (Luke 6:38) GTN

Thank - You!

On every continent Lakeside faithfully ministers to our World through:

  • Caring Ministries - Healthcare, Orphanage, Pro-Life Ministries, Famine & Disaster Relief, Substance Abuse Rehab, and Rescue & Rehabilitation from Sex Trafficking 
  • Planting Churches - The Lord has birthed His Church to be the foundation from which all ministry flows. It's His Vision to reach our World.
  • Training Centers - Training Pastors, Missionaries, Evangelists, and Teachers who in turn train others is God's multiplication principle for reaching our World for Jesus.
  • Reaching Ministries - The Good News of the Gospel is still the greatest answer for the World's greatest need - Jesus!

What's the Difference between Tithing and Offerings?

Tithing - God calls us to obey Him by Tithing. Tithing is putting God first in our finances by giving Him the first tenth of our income. The Bible teaches the Tithe goes to the church we attend to support the operational expenses of its ministries. God promises Divine prosperity to faithful tithers. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. (Malachi 3:10) NIV 

Offerings - An offering is financial giving above and after tithing. Offerings at Lakeside are for the support of World Outreach (Missions Fund) and Lakeside capital improvements (Vision Fund) such as: construction; new carpeting; new church transportation; etc.
