Welcome to Lighthouse Church!
We care about YOU. We want to be intentional in what we do in order to journey with you in your walk with God. At the end of the day, it is important to us that you find your people and find your place here at Lighthouse.
Finding your people is choosing those folks you want to do life with—call it what you want—relationships, community, or maybe just the term friends. We’ve got some pretty cool people at Lighthouse. Hang out long enough and you’ll find that to be true. Finding your place is connecting in the areas you naturally love serving in. It’s our way of giving back for all that God has done for us. Whether it’s working with kids or hanging out directing traffic in the parking lot, there are quite a few opportunities for you to find your place at Lighthouse.
Please take the time to read through this brochure. If there is anything we can do to answer your questions, just give us a shout. We’d love to connect with you and help you experience the vision of Lighthouse and how it may become part of your life. We want you to truly know God! And as a result, have the ability to make HIM known through your life to everyone you come into contact with, every day, and everywhere you go.
And by the way, if nobody told you this week that they love you, let me be the first! We love you!
Welcome to Lighthouse!

Yes. Everyone is welcome!
The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives. (2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thes. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21).
Our God is One, but manifested in three Persons—the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit, being coequal (Phil. 2:6). God the Father is greater than all, the sender of the Word (Logos) and the Begetter (John 14:28; John 16:28; John 1:14). The Son is the Word, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the beginning (John 1:1; John 1:18; John 1:14). The Holy Spirit proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is too eternal (John 15:26).
Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God. But mankind voluntarily severed his relationship with God through sin. Jesus Christ came to undo the work of the devil and give His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Rom. 5:12–15; Rom. 3:10; Rom. 3:23; 1 John 3:8).
It is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the Law. It is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:8–10, Luke 24:47, Rom 8:16).
Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that leads to repentance. The New Birth is necessary for everyone. Nobody is exempt. When experienced, it produces eternal life (2 Cor. 7:10; 1 John 5:12; John 3:3–5).
Baptism in water is by immersion. It is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only. It is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36–39).
The Lord’s Supper, which consisting of two elements –bread and the fruit of the vine– is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ, a memorial of his suffering and death, and a prophecy of His second coming, and it is encouraged that all believers participate. (2 Peter 1:4; 1 Cor. 11:26).
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all believers and may be received following the New Birth. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other Tongues. (Matt. 3:11; John 14:16– 17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38–39; Acts 19:1–7; Acts 2:4).
Without holiness, no man will see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, beginning at the time of the New Birth and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return (Heb. 12:14; 1 Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Cor. 3:18; Phil. 3:12–14; 1 Cor. 1:30).
Healing is for the physical ills of the human body and is manifest by the power of God through the prayer of faith and by the laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ and is available for every person who believes (Mark 16:18; James 5:14–15; 1 Peter 2:24; Matt. 8:17; Isa. 53:4–5).
Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised and will rule and reign on this earth. History will conclude as the wicked are judged and the righteous enter a new heaven and a new earth. His coming is imminent and is known as the Blessed Hope (Acts 1:11; 1 Thess. 4:16–17; 1 Cor. 15:21-52).
The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is eternally lost in the Lake of Fire and has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel. The final judgement awaits the wicked dead, and living (Matt. 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Heb. 9:27; Rev. 19:20).
God created marriage. It is a covenant made between a man and a woman that makes them one. The marriage covenant requires the married parties to be faithful, loving, and helpful to each other as long as they both shall live (Gen. 2:22; Gen. 2:24; Mark 10:31).
Society has tried to confuse the value of family, which is the most important classroom and training ground for society and culture. God’s best vision for the family is based on a marriage covenant between a man and a woman. A biblically defined family offers the security, legacy, and perpetuation of morality without which no society can survive (Gen. 4:12; Eph. 6:14).
