Rooted deep within the heart of Lakeside Baptist Church is a desire to see God glorified in all the nations. We believe that every Christian should have an active role in seeing “The Great Commission” fulfilled (Matthew 28:19-20). From the city of Canton and Van Zandt County to the “uttermost parts of the earth”, Lakeside Baptist Church is actively involved in taking Christ’s love to the world!


10% of the tithes and offerings received at Lakeside go directly to support missions through the SBC Cooperative Program, the Kauf-Van Baptist Association, and our local missions support program.


Lakeside supports regional mission projects and church planting through the Kauf Van Baptist Association.
