About Lawrence Drive Baptist Church

Lawrence Drive exists to win people to Jesus, disciple believers and love God with everything we have. Through Pastoral leadership we are to be equipped to do the works of the ministry. Each one of us has been given power through the indwelling of The Holy Spirit. Each of us has a spiritual gift through which we are able to do the good works that we were created for. God’s mission and the mission of His Church are inseparably linked. If God’s mission is to be glorified through the redemption and reconciliation of a people, the Church’s mission must align with those very same things.


The mission of the Church is highlighted in Matthew 28:17-20. We exist to remove all doubt in our worship of Jesus believing that He has given us the authority to live for Him and become more and more like Him. We are called to make disciples of all nations and to baptize converts in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  


At Lawrence Drive, this mission is best displayed in our daily lives, as we live out the Gospel to those around us teaching people to obey all the commands Jesus gave to us. In all of this Jesus has promised that He would be with us even to the end of the age.
