Thank you for visiting our website. In light of recent events, I felt it necessary to address the racism issue. The Bible tells us in Acts 17:26 that God has "And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth.” Later, in Romans 10:12 we are told that "there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek…”. It is clear from God’s Word that He created all men equal. Lakeside Baptist Church is opposed to racism in any form. We believe that racism must stop, and that each of us can play a part in bringing that to pass. The reality is that black lives matter because all lives matter, and we can’t really say that all lives matter until we treat everyone in a way that shows that all lives really do matter. Sadly, as a society, and sometimes as a churches, we can fall short of that. We are all individuals created by God and in His image (Genesis 1:27). Racism in any form is sinful and goes against God’s command to love one another (John 15:17). Rather than be a part of the problem, let’s all be a part of the solution…let’s bear one another’s burdens. Let’s show forth the love of Christ in every word, action, and attitude every day.
