We are a Bible-believing, Spirit filled church. We believe in preaching and teaching the Bible in such a way that lives are changed and that individuals and families are strengthened. At LWC, we believe in supporting and encouraging each other in good times and in difficult times. We have a congregation that believes in reaching out beyond themselves to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to reach the un-reached and tell the untold of the love of God found in Christ Jesus and helping Believers find their place in the Body of Christ.
