What We Believe
The Bible is truly all we need for faith and practice. This is why we must be clear about what the Bible teaches. Not every member of Lamar agrees 100% with the statements below, but all pastors, staff, and leaders do. No teaching or preaching at Lamar will ever contradict these statements. We believe they are a reflection of the clear teaching of God’s Word.
