Grace to You and Grace Community Church have influenced Lakeside Community Chapel, primarily through the teaching and writing ministry of Dr. John MacArthur. Though we are not in formal affiliation with either of those two ministries, we share John MacArthur’s convictions about the Bible’s teaching on God’s sovereignty, salvation, and the spiritual walk of the believer. Lakeside’s doctrinal statement is in agreement with the doctrinal statement of both Grace to You and Grace Community Church. Two of our pastors are graduates of The Master’s Seminary, where Dr. MacArthur is the president.
The Gospel Coalition is a group of pastors and churches that exist to promote gospel-centered ministry and biblically-faithful resources for the church. Lakeside Community Chapel shares the doctrinal convictions and theological vision for ministry as outlined in their Foundation Documents.
The Fellowship of Independent Reformed Evangelicals (FIRE) is an organization of churches which affirms the five “Solas” of the Reformation. Although Lakeside Community Chapel is not “reformed” in its position on the Bible’s teaching about future events, we are in agreement with FIRE’s Statement of Faith. Pastor Kreloff is a member of the FIRE organization.
