Mission Statement

The first and foremost purpose of Lighthouse Baptist Church and its ministries is that God in all things may be glorified through His Son, Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever.  It is the desire of this organization to engage in any and all types of activities which shall promote and foster the propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In order to accomplish this, we will provide a Christ-centered organization dedicated to leading people to a voluntary commitment to the Lordship of Christ; to develop the God-given spiritual, physical, mental, social, and artistic fits of each person to his/her fullest potential; and to lead each person to spiritual maturity, thus enabling them to participate in the expansion of the Kingdom of Christ, exercise Godly dominion over the creation, and thereby glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

Beliefs

  1. The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life. Lighthouse Baptist Church is an independent, Bible-believing, Baptist church with a Bible-centered ministry that uses the King James 1611 version in all of its ministries. In one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  2. That Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He died on the cross, a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
  3. That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.
  4. That man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
  5. That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and, thus become children of God. 
  6. That water baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.
  7. That the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ of which He is the Head.
  8. That Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church and that every local church has the right, under Christ, to decide and govern its own affairs.
  9. We believe in the visible and personal return of Jesus Christ.
  10. We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
