Our Core Values
We believe each member at LOC is at a different place, on the same journey to becoming a disciple and that knowing God is a personal relationship. Knowing God is the spiritual foundation in which we can then trust and share God.
We believe in order to grow in our commitment to God that we must trust God. We believe in His promise and invite Him into every aspect of our lives.
We believe in the power of connecting people to Jesus. Through God’s grace, fellowship, evangelism and living a godly life we are opening the hearts of others.
