Have be coming here since 2010 the Lord is with Pastor Ellis.Building remodeled and great teaching from the KJV.
The elders of this church recently excommunicated members who love Jesus and are heralds for his gospel. They were "handed over to satan" based on differences on views of the end times. The gentlemen are good men who are loved in many Christian circles but are declared by this church to be unbelievers because they have a view different from what is held at this church. I am tremendously ashamed of First Baptist Church of The Lakes. I solemnly warn anyone who is considering attending this church.
Dr. John Pretlove is the finest expository teacher I've ever had the pleasure of studying with. He does not try to 'convict' you, he leaves that to the Holy Spirit. He provides rich biblical history, is a great pastor and, though I no longer reside in Vegas, I am BLESSED to have been led to FBC of the Lakes and thankful to have been able to call FBC of the Lakes my church home while in NV.
Strong Bible teaching church in Las Vegas. Authentic people. Christ centered worship. Teaches doctrines of grace with expository preaching and worship that is Gospel centered.
I do not appreciate members of this church coming to my kid's school handing them a flyer saying that they've won a fake MLK jr. award to try to get us to their church. Don't try to indoctrinate my children with your religious nonsense. I don't care if you are religious, you can believe whatever you want and i won't hate you for it, but when you try to go behind a parent's back to try and recruit them to your cult, then you are stepping way over the line. Shame on you.
This church is awful! The Pastor's son who is an assistant pastor literally criticized my job. Plus right after my wife told her name to him he called her Julie not even close. The kid's church the children are not allowed to eat more than 3 cookies the poor kids are starving because the Pastor rambles on for over and hour and a half every week. Not for me.
My wife and I have been going to this church for the past few years and it has been a great help to not only our individual lives but also our marriage! We have really enjoyed being a part of this church!
this is a really great church! the music is really good and modern too! Im so glad i have found a home church for my family!!
This church has great intentions, believe me. They want to reach out and share the gospel with lost souls which is awesome but they preach hate instead of love. Honestly, they don't even practice what is preached there. The Teis family is controlling and judgmental in so many ways. They don't have a church budget so no one knows where the money goes and I'm not sure how much currently but I know they're in debt several million dollars if not more. They guilt-trip the congregation into giving them money. Many of the teachings, I believe, are using brainwashing tactics. Growing up there was great because I was a young, naive girl who didn't know any better. Once I got to the high school group is when I saw true colors. People talking trash about other people, Pastor Matt (high school leader) dissing other religions and making fun of them, and people judging me just because I went to public school.Their biggest problem is that they focus too much on rules and regulations rather than the love and mercy Jesus offers.Save yourself the hurt from being stabbed in the back and guilt if you don't go to church three times a week and if you aren't dressed from your neck to your knee and run as far away as you can from this place. Also, they use ONLY King James Version of the bible which is very hard to understand. They often twist around and manipulate scripture by only using one version, making is less accurate. Jesus died for us not so we can judge others, but so we can love and encourage them.
When we walked in the door the first time, we knew we were home.So will you.This becomes "your church" instantly.Great preaching, superb children and teen services.Nothing in excess, but nothing missing.See ya in church, my friend!......
