Who We Are

And What We Stand For

Our Core Values

1. Jesus and His Presence

At LCI we’re intentional about cultivating and protecting an environment where people can experience the life-giving presence of God.

“…If Your presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here.” – Exodus 33:15 NASB

2. Lost People

It’s hard to pursue the lost and personal preferences simultaneously. Therefore, at LCI we do ministry to reach people, not please people.

“…I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some. I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it.”  – 1 Corinthians 9:22-23 NASB

3. Forward Thinking

We keep getting ready in order to stay ready. We continually develop leaders and structure LCI for where we’re going rather than where we are. 

“Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams…” – Isaiah 54:2-3 NLT

4. Honor

Honor is the attitude of the house. We cultivate a culture of unity by speaking life over one another, respecting each other, forgiving quickly, and giving each other the benefit of the doubt.

“Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense! For you will soon be bursting at the seams…” – Isaiah 54:2-3 NLT

5. Excellence

At LCI we continually cultivate a culture of excellence. God gave us His best and so we want to give Him our best in everything we do.

“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” – Daniel 6:3 KJV

6. Diversity

Since the Kingdom of God is diverse, we think the church should be also. At LCI we intentionally cultivate a ministry that is multi-ethnic, multi-racial, and multi-generational.

“9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; 10 and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” – Revelation 7:9-10 NASB

7. Big Dreams

Without faith it’s impossible to please God; therefore, we dream big dreams that could never be accomplished without God’s help.

Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.  – Ephesians 3:20 TLB

8. Generosity

Giving is one of God’s greatest expressions of His love for us.  In John 3:16 we see His most generous gift. In turn, it’s one of the greatest ways we can express God’s love to others. In 2 Corinthians 9, the Bible teaches that as we release what’s in our hand, God releases what’s in His hand. It is possible to give without loving, however, it is impossible to love without giving.

“The generous man will be prosperous, And he who waters will himself be watered.” –Proverbs 11:25
