About Us

Karl Novak has served as pastor of LBC since its founding in 2000. His wife, Bonnie Novak, serves as leader of the worship team.

Lakeshore Baptist Church, formerly Cicero Baptist Church, is located at 6696 Lakeshore Rd., Cicero, New York. The church was founded in 2000 by Pastor Karl Novak who has now led LBC for over ten years. During that time Lakeshore Baptist Church has developed into a loving accepting body of believers sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ and encouraging the people of Central New York to come to Him by grace through faith and follow Him in love and obedience.
As with most new local churches, LBC has struggled with the difficulty and prohibitive expense of acquiring its own facilities. However, during 2009 and 2010 God did a great miracle! The Lord provided Lakeshore Baptist Church with a completely rebuilt 10,000 square foot facility on four acres of land overlooking Oneida Lake. Certainly there has been much hard labor involved in this miracle, but how could a modest congregation in size and income acquire the necessary funds (approximately $500,000) to purchase and rebuild such a facility (with a very small mortgage)? Impossible to be sure, BUT GOD did it!

We believe that God has great things in store for Lakeshore Baptist Church as we continue pressing forward for His glory, seeking to reach many in Central New York for Christ!
