The mission of Carter Lake Baptist Church is to live out Christ, build up our church family, and reach out to the world in love through the Word of God. LIVE OUT acknowledging God’s Word as the ultimate authority in our lives. Be open, vulnerable and real with others in love. BUILD UP focusing every day on what we can give more than what we got. Actively searching for opportunities to serve and uplift others in need and to make a focused effort to love as Christ loved us. REACH OUT keeping the Word of God in our hearts and minds so we are ready to give an account of what God has done for us. Making God the source of who we are so we lovingly share Him with all He brings to us to reach.

Leadership Team: Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
