ACTS Church Lakeline
ACTS Church Lakeline is a church located in Northwest Austin, Texas that seeks to share and live out the hope of Jesus Christ through adventure, community, transformation, and sending.
The value of Adventure runs deep in the DNA of the ACTS network and in ACTS Church Lakeline. Many people immediately think of high adrenaline activities when they hear “adventure.” This is true, but adventure in the church looks like following what Jesus puts in front of you. Following Jesus is the core of being a disciple and Christian. As changed people that are sent into a changing world, followers of Jesus are living on an adventure that never grows old.
The value of community is a core value that we see in the church in the New Testament. Rather than trying to follow Jesus as isolated individuals, God has given the Church community. Each person in a congregation has something to offer another, and when one is missing the whole groups misses them. Biblically this is called the “body of Christ.”
Transformation is the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the people of God. We value this because we believe that God is in the work of daily transforming us into something new. We will look for and celebrate the transformation in the lives of the people of ACTS Church Lakeline.
The value of sending comes from what we saw Jesus do with his disciples. He sent them out into their world to either proclaim the Gospel or serve the community. We believe that each person is sent wherever they are. We also believe that God has placed together this new church community to be sent as a group into Northwest Austin.
