It is the stated purpose of Lakeview Baptist Church to love the Lord God and to express that love by making, nurturing, and equipping disciples of Jesus Christ in Auburn and throughout the world. As a part Lakeview, Carpenters for Christ share in this purpose and actively seek to fulfill it.

Through local projects and yearly mission trips, members donate their time to assist other Christians in building places to worship God and study His Word.

The primary purpose of Carpenters for Christ, however, is the building of disciples through prayer, Bible study, fellowship and service.
