Lakeside Church of Chicago (formally known as Lakeside Japanese Christian Church 日本人) was founded by Japanese-Americans in the early 1940's.  Lakeside is a multi-ethnic congregation, which seeks to know Christ and to make Christ known, using the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20 as our mission mandate.  We are cultivating a love for God (Mark 12:30), a love for one another in the body of Christ (John 13:34-35), and a love for all people (Mark 12:31).  We teach the Bible as God's revelation of Himself and His truth, and our final rule of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
