Who we are

Our Story

The vision for Lighthouse Church began over 20 years ago from the members and families of the Arabic Evangelical Baptist Church. While the Arabic Church has always met the needs of our Arab American families, the church dreamed of reaching the non-Arabic speaking community as well as creating an English church environment that the second generation could understand as well. So on Easter 2021, Lighthouse Church opened its doors for all!

Our Mission

is to inspire you to: Meet People. Meet Purpose.

 

Why? God has created each of us with a deep desire for community and purposeful lives found in Him.

Our Vision

Our Vision

Through finding our purpose in Jesus and following Him together we can be a Lighthouse for Jesus by presenting His love and proclaiming His truth to our community.

What we believe

Simply, we believe, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

People praying

We believe that God is the creator and sustainer of all things. He created mankind in his own image. (Gen 1:1,Gen 1:27,  Col 1:16)

We believe God exists as three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), yet He is one being. (Gen 1:2, John 1:1, Acts 5:3-4, Mt. 28:19)

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the ultimate authority for how we should live our lives. (2 Tim. 3:16-17, Mt. 4:4, Ps. 119:105)

Every human being is separated from God because of their sin. There is nothing humanity can do to reconcile themselves to God. (Rom 3:23)

In his love for humanity, God took on flesh in the person of Jesus and took on the punishment we deserved upon himself in his death on the cross. (Rom. 5:8, 1 Pet. 2:24)

We are saved from our sin by accepting the free gift of God by faith. We receive forgiveness for our sins and eternal life with God. (Rom. 6:23, Rom. 10:9, Eph. 2:8-9)

 

 

The church has been instituted by God to be the operating redemptive force of God’s will in the world. The church is the body of Christ and fellowship, instruction, and prayer fall under the purposes of the church. (Acts 2:42, 1 Cor. 12:12-27)

 

 

Jesus will return to judge the living and the dead and take His followers with him to paradise. (Heb. 9:28, 2 Tim. 4:1)
