What we value


Stronger Inside

We are continually changing!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.”  2 Corinthians 5:17

We serve Jesus!

 “If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me. Where I am, there my servant also will be. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:26

We give generously! 

“In every way I’ve shown you that by laboring like this, it is necessary to help the weak and to keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, for He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive”’ Acts 20:35

Reach Outside

We want to reach people!

 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

We connect with community!

“But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7

We are Joyful!

“You love Him, though you have not seen Him. And though not seeing Him now, you believe in Him and rejoice with inexpressible and glorious joy, 1 Peter 1:8

Some of Our Story

Lakeview Baptist Church began in 1949 with around 20 people meeting right here in Selmer. In 2015 Pastor Clint Overton became Lakeview's lead pastor after serving in Lakeview's student ministry for almost ten years. Lakeview has a passion for reaching people for Jesus. In 2016 Pastor Clint and staff began to lead Lakeview's Ministries into a more modern approach, a come as you are atmosphere. On any given Sunday, you can expect upbeat music and relevant teaching and preaching. Instead of coming to a building where people are met with guilt, shame, and disapproval, Jesus compels us to be a family that increases His love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness to everyone.
