Lakeview (LVCC) was established December of 1980 holding services in a small commercial building in the center of Lake Havasu City. By Easter of 1981 LVCC had outgrown two facilities and by December of the same year relocated to our current property on West Acoma Blvd. The small building was renovated from a plumbing business and ready for services. Since then the church has undertaken three additional renovations to bring it to its present size of over 25,000 sq. ft. on a six acre lot. Lakeview currently serves over 300 members.
Lakeview has and continues to serve Lake Havasu City through evangelistic outreach, youth ministries and has funded more than $3,000,000 in outreach to missions around the world and here locally in Lake Havasu City.
To reach the city of Lake Havasu for the Lord Jesus Christ; to be a healing center for the whole man - spirit, soul and body. To heal the hurts, build dreams and bring salvation to everyone.
We believe that "Ministry unto the Lord" is our first God given priority. ( Ezekiel 44:15) As a kingdom of believer Priests, we are called to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable unto God by Christ Jesus. The sacrifice of praise and worship is one of our first responsibilities. (1 Peter 2:5: Hebrews 13:15)
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. It is the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason.
We believe that the only way to salvation is through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. That we are not saved by works or good deeds, but by the grace of God through faith. (Titus 2:11; 3:5, 7; Romans 8:15-16; Luke 24:45)
We believe in baptism by water and the Holy Spirit. Water baptism signifies the death to our old life and that we have been raised with Him to newness of life.(Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:45, 48; Romans 6:4)
Baptism in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by speaking in tongues (prayer language). Our prayer language is our personal com-munication to the Father. (Acts 1:8; 2:4, 42-43; 10:44, 46) By power of the Holy Spirit in us, we should endeavor to pursue a life of holiness pleasing unto the Lord by walking in obedience to God's Word.
Divine healing and deliverances are provisions of God and a privilege for the believer.(Mark 16:18; John 5:14; Matthew 8:1, 6-17)
The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly. (Ephesians 1:22, 2:19, 22; Hebrews 12:23)
