WHO WE ARE
WE ARE A SPIRIT-LED FAMILY OF MISSIONARY SERVANTS LEARNING TO WORSHIP JESUS IN ALL OF LIFE
Identities and Rhythms
We believe that there is a direct correlation between who we are and what we do.
The gospel not only saves us ‘from’ sin, it also saves us ‘to’ a new identity (Col 3:12-17). It doesn’t just address the negative (problem) it establishes the positive (purpose). Jesus Christ has saved us from sin—we are no longer slaves to it. Additionally He has saved us to righteousness and good works (Eph 2:10). Jesus has given us a new identity, which means new rhythms also.
So, at LCC, this means that we are:
We are children of God who love and care for each other as a family (Eph 2:14–16; Rom 8:12–17). And so as a family we gather regularly and corporately on the Lord’s Day in celebration of and catalyst for all God has done for us and continues to do in us and through us as his people.
We are sent ones of God, joining him on his mission to restore all things to himself (Acts 1:8; John 20:21; Matt 24:14; Matt 28:16–20; 2Cor 5:20). And so as missionaries, we intentionally seek ways to love and serve our neighbour where we live, work and play in order to declare and display the gospel.
We are servants of God who serve God and others as a way of life (Jer 29:7; Matt 20:28; Gal 5:13; 1 Pet 4:10). And so as servants, we find ways to generously, sacrificially and joyfully love God and neighbour through stewarding our time, talent and treasure in order to see the mission of God advance locally and globally.
We are disciples of Jesus who take responsibility for our own growth and the growth of others (Mat 4:19; Eph 4:11–16; 2 Pet 3:14–18; 2Tim 1:13; 2Tim 3:16). And so as disciples we regularly spend time listening to God through his word, talking to God through prayer and discipling one another through Life Groups, DNA Groups, and one-on-one mentoring.
We are God’s image-bearers, reflecting and bringing glory to him as a way of life (Eph 1:4–6; Rom 1:18–25, 11:33–12:2). And so as worshippers we seek to live all our life as a way of bringing glory and worship to God and reflecting to the world a life lived under his rule and reign as his kingdom people.
