About LCC


We are located at 212 West Washington Street in Lancaster, Missouri, where we’ve been gathering since 1914. (The congregation first organized in 1847!)  

We’ll be there to greet you as you walk in, and show you where the coffee is!


On Sunday mornings join us for coffee in the southeast corner by the window.

Our worship service starts at 10:00 a.m. and ends around 11:15 a.m. We have an actual church bell, and yes, we ring it every Sunday. 

Jesus And Me (J.A.M.), for kids ages 5 to 13, meets most Wednesday nights during the school year. We serve a hot meal at 5:30 p.m., followed by classes, games, and crafts that end at 7:30 p.m.  

See our MINISTRIES page for more information about support groups, small groups and Bible studies.  


We welcome everyone. Many of us are in jeans, t-shirts and casual dress; others dress up a little.

Currently masks are optional and socially distanced seating is available.

We offer Children's Church for ages 4 to 4th grade. The kids all meet downstairs after the offering for Bible stories and activities. We offer a staffed nursery downstairs and a cry room upstairs if you need help with a little one.

Mission, Vision and Values


We show people how to follow Jesus every day.

(Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 9:23)


We are a holy people who

study God's word,

submit to God's will, and

serve in the church and the world.

Each member participates every week

in one hour of group study,

one hour of corporate worship, and

one hour of service (in the church or to the world).

(Mark 12:33; Acts 17:10-12; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 1 Peter 2:9-10)


1. Biblical Authority

We hold a high view of Scripture and accept its final authority in the life and practice of the church. In matters of faith, we are unified. (Leviticus 18:4; Psalm 119:160; Luke 9:11; Acts 17:11; Romans 8:7; 10:3; 15:4; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 4:13; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; James 4:7; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

2. Prayerful Dependence

We seek God in all things. We ask God to do His work in transforming lives by His Spirit. We also depend on God for ample resources of people, facilities, and finances to fulfill our mission and vision. (Nehemiah 1:1-2:8; Psalm 105:1-4; Matthew 6:5-13; Luke 5:16; 11:1-4; Acts 1:14; 6:4; Romans 9:16; 12:12; etc.)

3. Excellent Ministry

We do all things well to give God glory. We give God our first and our best, not our leftovers. What we do, we do well. All members are equipped for service according to the gifts God has given them. (Nehemiah 10:35; Proverbs 3:9; Romans 12:1; 1 Corinthians 10:31; Ephesians 4:11-16; Hebrews 13:20-21)

4. Growth Environments

We create healthy environments through relationships and programs to encourage and nurture holistic spiritual growth. We treat all people with love as they are made in God’s image and need redeemed by Christ’s work. (Genesis 1:26-27; Ezra 7:10; Nehemiah 8-10; Mark 12:32-34; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Galatians 5:22-6:10; Colossians 1:9-14, 28; 3:10-17; 2 Timothy 3:14-17)

5. Kingdom Collaboration

We work with other churches and Christian organizations to accomplish our mission. We also do this to demonstrate our unity in Christ and the truth. Though we are not the only Christians, we are Christians only. (John 17:17-23; Philippians 1:27; 2:2)

What We Believe

God the Father is the Creator of the universe. God is infinite, eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-encompassing. 

Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God, and the Son of Man. 

Jesus died for our sins, was buried, rose from the dead, and is coming back again.

 The Holy Spirit is fully divine and dwells in the hearts of all believers. The Spirit equips all believers with spiritual gifts to serve others, and comforts us in all our troubles.

The Bible is the living, active, inspired Word of God – absolute in its authority, and complete in its revelation.

We are the Church, the body of Christ; church is not a building or manmade institution. 

We are called to love one another, live in unity together, make more disciples,  

and grow together as Christ’s followers.

Love is the way we show others who God is. Love is to remain at the core of our faith.

No book but the Bible; no creed but Christ; no name but the Divine.

 Where the Scriptures speak, we speak; where the Scriptures are silent, we are silent.

 In essentials, unity; in opinions, liberty; and in all things, love.

We're not the only Christians, but we're Christians only.
