A Note From
Welcome. My name is Mark. I have been married to my best friend Teresa 31 years, and
am the father of three children, 28, 26, and 15. Coming back from Germany as church-planting
missionaries in the fall of 2000, Teresa and I have been ministering at Medical Lake Community
Church since June 2001. It has been exciting to see Medical Lake Community Church become
the church it is today.
Medical Lake Community Church is a non-denominational church founded in 1883 by a
church-planting missionary Cushing Eells. Today, we meet together in two services in a historic
building, with a warm, comfortable, inviting feel. Visitors often say how welcomed and valued
the church made them feel. We care about people.
By its very nature the Church is a family. Embracing the family dynamic, we seek to
build strong relationships. If you are looking for deep, committed relationships, we promise to
provide the environment where these can be established. Since we are a “perfectly imperfect”
church, we give each other lots of love and grace, because none of us have arrived at perfect
Christian maturity. After visiting us for one service, it will be obvious to you that we really
enjoy being around each other.
We believe the Bible is the ultimate authority for faith and practice. So, we are
committed to teaching and preaching the Bible in a way that explains its meaning, focusing on
the context of the passage and how the modern Christian can put it into practice daily. This is
our commitment to you: if you want to know the Bible and the God of the Bible, we will
faithfully teach week in and week out the truth of the Bible.
We invite you to make Medical Lake Community Church your church home. If you
would like more information about who we are, and how we serve our community and the world,
please feel free to give me a call at 509-299-3286
