About Us

Our Mission:

To present the Gospel in such a way that it turns non-Christians into converts, converts into disciples, and disciples into mature, fruitful leaders who will in turn go into the world and reach others for Christ.

Lakewood Community Church: A place to CONNECT, GROW, & SERVE.

Lakewood Community Church is a place to worship, fellowship and grow. It is our honor and pleasure to welcome you to our church and share all that God is doing through our church and for people. We are grateful for our community and those who call it home.

In 1939, a small group of Christians living in the Lakewood Community became aware of the great need for a place of worship. For a short period of time services were held in a home. Realizing the interest for building a church, the group appointed a building committee and began raising funds for a building program. That was the beginning of our ministry as a church and we continue to grow today.

“I am not afraid that the people called Methodists should ever cease to exist either in Europe or America. But I am afraid lest they should only exist as a dead sect, having the form of religion without the power. And this undoubtedly will be the case unless they hold fast both the doctrine, spirit, and discipline with which they first set out.” 


Families grow up together in communities. The EMC works to make our communities a better place to live, meeting people where they are.


In order to keep the heart of God’s message clear, and the church’s mission strong and vital, we continually center on four primary values: People | Community | Faith | and Outreach.


The Evangelical Methodist Church is convinced that Jesus Christ can radically transform a life resulting in a vital, personal relationship with God and a transformed relationship with people from all cultures and ethnicities..
