Our Vision

To take the Gospel into all the world making disciples one at a time

Mission & Purpose

Our mission is simple, but it is the heartbeat of everything we do at Arran Lake. Because we, as a church, want to be serious about the mission of Christ (Matthew 28:19-20), it is our mission to disciple everyone in our faith family to be dedicated followers of Jesus. Like Jesus equipped the disciples, we want to equip our faith family to invest their lives into others who will become dedicated followers of Jesus who will go and make disciples.

Our Beliefs & Values

Today, many form their views and opinions based on what the culture says. At Arran Lake, we believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with ultimate, final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind. Our beliefs and values are rooted in the Scriptures, which are the final source for all that we believe.


We believe there is one true God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and characteristics of personality. He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things (Gen 1:1; Ps. 18:35; 90:2; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).

Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth (Matt. 1:18-25; 20:28, Luke 1:26-38; John 1:1; 20:28, 30-31; Acts 1:11; Rom . 5:6-8; 6:9-10; 9:5; 8:32; 2 Cor. 5:21; Eph. 1:4; 1 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 7:25; 9:28; 1 Pet. 2:21-23).

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and apply the saving work of Christ to people. He convicts sinners of their need for Christ, baptizes them into the Body of Christ, imparts new life to them, imparts spiritual gifts to them, indwells them, and seals them until the day of redemption. Believers are called to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit and in so doing, their faith will be manifested in works pleasing to God (Matt. 3:11; Mark 1:8; John 16:5-14; Acts 1:8; Gal. 5:22; Eph . 1:13; 5:8-21; 1 Thess. 1:5; 1 Cor. 3:16; 12:1-7, 13; 2 Cor. 1:22; 3:6).


We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the
original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith, life, and godliness (Mark 13:31; John 8:31,32; 20:31; Acts 20:32; 1 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:3, 20, 21


We believe salvation is the gift of eternal life received only through a personal trust in Jesus Christ, who was God’s substitute for sin. This gift is given by the unmerited favor of God’s grace without regard to any human works or goodness. All those who believe in Jesus are eternally secure in Him (John 3:16; 10:28-30; 2 Cor. 5:21; Eph. 2:8-9; 1 Pet. 1:3-5).


We believe men and women were created in the image of God but fell into sin through disobedience to a divine command bringing all mankind under condemnation. Human nature is totally corrupt and unable to please God for a right standing before Him (Gen. 1:27; Gen. 3; Isa 53:6; Rom. 3:9-18, 23; 5:12).

The Church

We believe in the universal church; a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe God has laid upon the members of the church the primary task of making disciples by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world (Acts 1:8; 2:42; Eph. 2:19-22; 5:19-21; Heb. 10:23-25).


We believe in the reality of Satan, a created being, who fell through pride. He corrupts the minds of humanity with lies.  His judgment will be completely executed at the revelation of Jesus Christ, and he will ultimately be cast into the lake of fire (Matt. 13:19; John 8:44; 12:31; 2 Cor. 4:4; Eph. 2:2; Rev. 20:10).


We believe the word “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen. 2:18-25). We believe that marriage between one man and one woman, for life, uniquely reflects Christ’s relationship with His Church (Eph. 5:21-33). We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4). We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. Accordingly, the church can only recognize or participate in marriages that are consistent with our religious beliefs.

Civil Government

We believe God has ordained and created all authority consisting of three basic institutions: the home, the church, and the state. Every person is subject to these authorities, but all (including the authorities themselves) are answerable to God and governed by His Word. God has given each institution specific biblical responsibilities and balanced those responsibilities with the understanding that no institution has the right to infringe upon the other. The home, the church, and the state are equal and sovereign in their respective biblically assigned spheres of responsibility under God. When any of these authorities contradict the Scriptures, the church must obey Scripture rather than man’s authority (Acts 5:29; Rom. 13:1-7; Eph. 5:22-24; Heb. 13:17; 1 Pet. 2:13-14).

The Lord’s Return

We believe in the imminent second coming of Christ for His church, the eternal state of punishment for the unsaved called hell, and the eternal state of blessing for the saved called heaven (John 2:25; 3:16; Acts 1:9-11; Rom. 6:23; Phil. 3:20; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; Rev. 20:15).


We believe that there are two ordinances of the Church given by our Lord that we are to obey which are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion).


Baptism is commanded to all believers and is the first act of obedience. Baptism is a symbolic act signifying the believer’s death, burial, and resurrection “in Christ” (Rom. 6:3, 4; Acts 18:8; 1 Pet. 3:21). The book of Acts teaches the practice of water baptism by immersion for believers. ALBC does not believe in baptismal regeneration, nor do we hold that baptism is necessary for salvation. We practice baptism at any time when believers are gathered to celebrate the obedience of new believers.

The Lord’s Supper

The Lord’s Supper was instituted by Jesus on the night of His arrest. This symbolic act calls our attention to what Jesus did for us on the cross. The celebration is one in which we look back to the finished work of Christ for our salvation and forward to the return of Christ (1 Cor. 11:26). The Bible gives us no set times on when to observe the Lord’s Supper. We observe it several times during the year in order to make it a special ordinance for believers.
