Lakeland belongs to the Evangelical Free Church of America, an association of some 1,500 autonomous and interdependent churches and church plants united by a mutual commitment to serve our Lord Jesus Christ under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the Word of God. 

The term "Evangelical" refers to our faith, our theology. We are committed to the proclamation of the Gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ, and to the Scriptures as being the inspired, inerrant, authoritative and sufficient Word of God. The term "Free" refers to our polity, our structure and organization. We are committed to a congregational form of government.

We are one of several evangelical churches in Gurnee who form a ministry called GO! Together. Our vision is seeing transformed lives, transformed families, transformed neighborhoods, transformed churches and transformed communities in Gurnee and surrounding towns. 

As Christ-followers, it is our privilege to obediently share the love and message of Christ with the neighbors we have in common, to coordinate and develop ministries in all of our churches to meet together the whole-life needs of people and ultimately to be a force of healing in the lives of our neighbors.

Lakeland is also part of a network of local churches called Christ Together, whose vision is to mobilize the Church to experience a sustained Christ-awakening that transforms the people, churches and communities of Chicagoland. We do this by connecting people and resources for greater Kingdom impact.

In 2011, Lakeland planted LifeSpring Community Church in Spring Grove, IL. LifeSpring is a faith community that believes that when people are changed by the gospel, their relationships with others will also be transformed, and that Christians are called to make disciples, spreading the good news of Jesus Christ wherever they go.
