About Lakeview Free Methodist Church:
Lakeview Church belongs to the Free Methodist Church in Canada. Our teaching style leans into the Jesus-Centered Hermeneutic. At the core of our Church, we are guided by what we refer to as our Postures.
These four Postures act as the foundation for the direction of our Church.
1. Backward: Locating ourselves in God’s story. We believe God has been actively at work in our world as witnessed in the scriptures and through the church. We stand on the shoulders of those who have come before us, and rest on the very best of our heritage to influence our practices and worldview.
2. Forward: Anticipating God’s movements. We understand that our world faces challenges that must be thoughtfully navigated and negotiated. We are prepared to risk our comfort and security to help transform evil into good.
3. Inward: Creating sacred space to encounter God. We commit ourselves to a personal, but not individualistic, devotion to Jesus. We also submit ourselves to one another trusting that in community is where we meet and hear God.
4. Outward: Collaborating with God locally & globally. We accept God’s invitation to participate in the healing of our world.
We welcome spiritual seekers and skeptics, and conspire with God in acts of justice and restoration.
