Lewis and Clark Bible Church exists “to the praise of the glory of God’s grace.” (Ephesians 1:6).  We are:


Christ-centered: “We preach Christ crucified” (I Corinthians 1:23). The person and work of Christ are central to all that we do.

Bible-teaching: We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). We endeavor to faithfully teach the whole counsel of God’s Word. Our preaching is expository, verse-by-verse, with an emphasis on the practical application of God’s Word (2 Tim 4:2-3). Our goal is for members themselves to be good students of the Word of God (2 Timothy 2:15).


Gospel-preaching: We believe in the saving power of God’s glorious gospel (Romans 1:16; 1 Timothy 1:11). We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9)


Elder-led: We function according to the Biblical model of church government. A servant-minded plurality of elders is given the task of shepherding our congregation - prayerfully seeking God’s will in all matters pertaining to the church.


Missions-minded: LCBC has a rich tradition of faithfully supporting missionary efforts both at home and abroad. We encourage our members to be involved in missionary outreach; personally, prayerfully, and financially.


Servant-minded: Every believer has been given a unique set of spiritual gifts (1 Peter 4:10). God’s purpose is for His saints to be equipped to use their gifts in service to the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:12). We encourage our members to use their gifts to the glory of God.


Family-oriented:  We believe that God intends for the church to be a church “family” (1 Peter 1:22). We value our relationships within the body of Christ. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are mindful of Christ’s command to us that we should “love one another” (1 John 4:7-8).
