Lakeside is not part of a denomination - meaning Lakeside does not have to adhere to a centralized authority which exercises control over all aspects of our church life. Lakeside is a self-governing church by our Members who determine Lakeside's direction in accordance with the Bible, our constitution, and by-laws. Yet Lakeside is not isolated in ministry and vision but belongs to a cooperative network of churches called The Assemblies of God, who network together for global ministry and outreach. Birthed in 1914, our Network agrees together on sixteen Bible based truths, four of which are considered Core Beliefs: Salvation,  the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Divine Healing, and the Second Coming of Christ. Our Core Beliefs are often emphasized in our preaching, teaching, and worship.
