Together we are a community of believers. What does that mean, the word community? We believe that together in fellowship we grow closer to God and one another. The bible speaks about iron sharpening iron. We believe that together we grow stronger. We are a community of believers.
We strive to be a church without walls. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the lost and the broken. It is there that the lost will be found. Most churches find it is comfortable to stay within the walls, but we make it an effort to be like the church from the book of Acts, to see our city changed.
We highly value our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately growing closer to God. We value the word of God, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look to extend grace to all of the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.
WHO WE ARE
Lighthouse’s mission is revival – the personal, regional and global expansion of God’s Kingdom through His manifest presence.
Lighthouse is a congregation rooted in the love of God and dedicated to worldwide transformation through revival. It’s our goal for God’s love to be manifest in signs, wonders, and miracles. The atmosphere at Lighthouse is charged with faith and exuberant joy, which manifests in all we do. We believe we’re in the beginning of the greatest revival of all time. It’s our vision to see history become His-story as the kingdoms of this world becomes the kingdom of our God. We welcome you to join us on this adventure!
LIGHTHOUSE CORE VALUES
Our core values are the foundation of our ministry.
We believe in honoring one another… It's about valuing all ages.
We believe God is still speaking… It's about hearing Him.
We believe in the inspired word of God… It's about transformation.
We believe in the Holy Spirit… It's about Him empowering us to do signs, wonders and miracles.
We love his presence… It's about encountering Him.
We believe in prayer as a lifestyle… It's about relationship.
We believe in being generous like our Father… It's about our heart.
We believe Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life… It's about His heart in all we do.
OUR AMAZING GOD!
What it is? We believe that God is really amazing and that there is nothing better than learning to walk through life with, and for Him. He is there for us on our best days and He doesn't leave us when it feels like everything is falling apart. He encourages us and challenges us and gives us a purpose in life that is worth giving everything we have for. There is nothing quite like learning more about God and growing in Him.
All of that's great, but what makes it even better is that we get to learn and grow together. As a community of disciples, we are all on the journey of discovering and learning. As we make our way down that road, we do it together. None of us are perfect, none of us have it all together, none of us have all the answers, but we learn and grow, laugh, and serve together. We care for each other and we seek to bring God's love into a broken world, both nearby and far away.
GOOD IS GOOD
God is good, so we’re required to dream big.
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE
Nothing is impossible, so a huge part of our life is designed around taking risk.
THE BLOOD OF JESUS PAID FOR EVERYTHING
Everything we’ll ever need was dealt with at the cross, so we must come to a place of trusting Him in everything.
WE ARE SIGNIFICANT
God has made us each to be significant, so we must serve well.
Have questions? We have answers!
WHAT WE BELIEVE EXPANDED
THE WORD IS OUR FINAL AUTHORITY
Jesus died so we can be healed in every dimension, body, soul & spirit… When we are saved, we are set free from the power of the devil
Everyone can hear the voice of God and walk in the fullness of the Kingdom with signs and wonders
We are called to demonstrate God’s unconditional love & grace to everyone.
Christ is returning for a glorious overcoming bride: His Church
Worship –Our meetings are characterized by a time of corporate celebration of and rest in God’s goodness and holiness.
Instruction –Our emphasis is on communicating the Truth of God’s Word to allow the Spirit to work it out practically in our lives.
Fellowship –We believe that God desires that we love each other and, therefore, we reach out to each other in friendship and help.
Evangelism –We consider it a privilege to share Jesus and his love for those who don’t know him through our words and, just as importantly, our lifestyles.
DECISIONS THAT DEFINE US
We have decided that teaching the Gospel without demonstrating the Gospel is not enough. Good preaching, good doctrine, and being good people are not enough.
We have decided that having a good church club is not enough, good fellowship is not enough, and just being a member of that club is not enough.
We have decided that having good Bible studies is good, but not good enough. Just making it to heaven is not our goal, and knowing about God without truly knowing and experiencing God is meaningless.
We have decided that having good programs is not enough, that change without transformation is intolerable, and staying the same is not an option.
We have decided that gifting without character is futile.
We have decided that singing songs without worshiping is hollow and having meetings without God showing up is pointless.
We have decided that having faith without works is not enough and having works without love is not acceptable that our function comes out of our relationship, first with the Father and second with each other.
We have decided that reading about the book of Acts without living the book of Acts is unthinkable.
We have decided confident faith is good and bold faith is better.
We have decided hearing about the Holy Spirit without experiencing Him is silly, that believing in His presence without seeing it manifested in signs and wonders is hypocrisy, that believing in healing without seeing people healed is absurd, and that believing in deliverance without people being delivered is absolutely ridiculous.
We have decided to be Holy Spirit filled, Holy Spirit led, and Holy Spirit empowered anything less doesn t work for us.
We have decided to be the ones telling the stories of God s power not the ones hearing about them.
We have decided that living saved but not supernatural is living below our privilege and short of what Christ died for.
We have decided that we are a battle ship not a cruise ship, an army not an audience, Special Forces not spectators, missionaries not club members.
We have decided to value both pioneers and settlers: pioneers to expand our territory and settlers to build on those territories. But we are not squatters, people who take up space others have fought for without improving it.
We have decided to be infectious instead of innocuous, contagious instead of quarantined, deadly instead of benign.
We have decided to be radical lovers and outrageous givers.
We have decided that we are a mission station and not a museum.
We have decided that it is better to fail while reaching for the impossible that God has planned for us than succeed settling for less.
We have decided that nothing short of His kingdom come and His will being done in our world as it is in heaven will satisfy.
We have decided that we will not be satisfied until our world cries out “Those who have turned the world upside down have come here too.” (Acts 17:6 NKJV)
These are some of the decisions that define who we are as a community and how we choose to live our lives.These decisions are not destinations, but rather journeys along an ancient path. We have not found some new way. We discovered an avenue as old as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, traveled by Moses,
Joshua and Caleb. On this same risky road, Paul, John, Peter paved the way for the first century church, a church that revolutionized the culture of the first century and beyond.
It is an adventure that will impact the world we live in today. It is a path of Bold Faith believing that what God says is really true and acting on it; Outrageous Generosity giving our life away in order to demonstrate His Kingdom; Radical Love loving God with everything in us and our neighbor as ourselves.
This is a path of liberty, freedom, and healing where you will find significance, purpose, and destiny. This is a path less traveled. However it is not a journey available only to a select few; anyone may come on this highway cut by the hand of God for people of every nation, tribe and tongue, for those in any occupation or vocation.
No matter where you are in your life journey, there is room on this path for you!
