When Lakeshore was planted as a new church in 1987, the founding members envisioned a different kind of Missouri-Synod Lutheran Church. They wanted Lakeshore to be a church focused on reaching out to the unchurched and those without saving faith in Jesus. This meant Lakeshore intentionally went in the direction of offering only a contemporary worship service with a focus on doing ministry in a way that didn’t look like other LCMS churches. At the same time, Lakeshore wanted to stay true to its Lutheran doctrinal foundation – which means being completely based on the authority of God’s Word and centered on the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.
