About Our Pastor
Charles Belvin is the pastor of Lakewood Int. Church. Pastor Belvin, called by God and His permissive has led the church for the last 4 years with a host of sold-out saints for the Lord. He came to LCI only to help the late, great founding Pastor Leon Forkland. Belvin was so moved by the humility and power of the Holy Spirit in Forkland that he followed him and loved LCI immediately. Pastor Forkland washed his feet and licensed him before his unexpected death. He was planning to ordain him but never got a chance. Belvin was ordained.
Pastor Belvin is the first of two children born to Charles and Melva Belvin. He believes in preaching and teaching the word of God, and just as importantly, he believes that we must "LIVE" the word.
