A Message from Pastor Kyle:

Our first priority at Lake Carroll is to exalt our Lord Jesus Christ. He is preeminent and the focus of all we do. We are here to minister and present a living Christ to each other and our community.

Our desire at Lake Carroll is for you to see Christ in us and be blessed as you join us in praise and worship of God. We are glad you chose to visit with us. May God touch your heart and bless your life as you walk faithfully in Him. If you have yet to accept Christ into your heart, let us introduce you to our Lord and tell you how He has changed our lives.

Our mission at Lake Carroll is for each of us to fulfill the two greatest commandments of God; “To love the Lord our God with our entire heart, with our entire soul, and with our entire mind.” And the second is like it “To love our neighbor as our self.”(Matthew 22: 37-40).   As Christ came to seek and to save those whom are lost, we too have a heart for His Great Commission to reach people for Christ, here at home in Tampa, and throughout the world.

Our heart at Lake Carroll is not to do our will but God’s, and reach out to anyone who will let us. We extend love to one another in Christ so the world may know who we are. Our Lake Carroll family rejoices with each other in the good times and support each other in the bad times. We are all working out our salvation to come into the fullness of a Christ centered life in our homes; workplace; and social life. We seek to be a positive witness for Christ so others may come to know Him (Matt. 28: 19-20).

We are here to fulfill God’s call through Christ and be His lighthouse of hope and saving grace to our community. Our goal is to change lives through God’s unchanging Word so we may grow up in Christ and bear the fruit of His Spirit; to recognize our God given gifts and apply them in our daily life. We want every believer to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, live a life of victory not defeat, truth and not error, courage and not fear, and to share boldly to a lost world God’s redemptive plan through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We have a place for every age and invite you to get plugged in. We are not perfect, but we are complete and forgiven in Christ. If you are still learning and growing, just as we are, why not COME GROW WITH US!

Serving Christ together,

Pastor Kyle
