The Lighthouse Mission is:
Loving God - Loving People - Linking The Two
This mission reflects our understanding of the
Two Great Commandments:
"'And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind
and with all your strength."
The second is: "'You shall love
your neighbor as yourself.’
There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30, 31)
God is the creator of all things, seen and unseen. God is eternal and honestly good, knowing all things and holding all power and majesty. God exists as the Trinity. He is three persons, yet one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The creator of compassion, God, seeks to love and be loved by us. God desperately desires a relationship with us. As we journey through life, God is constantly leading us into a relationship with him based on Loving God, Loving People, Bringing the Two Together.
About Jesus Christ.
God displayed himself in human form through his son, Jesus Christ. Jesus was born of the virgin, Mary, and lived a sinless life. Displaying his commitment to God and us, he died on the cross for our sins. Jesus Christ was then buried, resurrected from the dead, and ascended into heaven.
About the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is sent from God to live inside all who believe in Jesus Christ. Exemplifying community, the Holy Spirit gives each follower diverse gifts, fostering unity, interdependence, productivity, Christ-like character and love among Christians. The Holy Spirit also teaches, comforts and empowers us.
About the Bible.
We believe God speaks to us through the Bible. The Bible is the infallible Word of God. The Bible is our standard for living. We believe that God’s unchangeable Biblical message ought to be presented in a relevant way portraying a real hope, to real people through a real God.
