WE ARE DISCIPLE
It is the mission of Lighthouse Community Church to Know God & Show God through making disciples of Jesus Christ by connecting people to God, Community & Purpose.
We create opportunities for people, wherever they are on their faith journey, to Know God through worship services and through engaging with our community.
Community is our middle name, and we believe that God created us to be in community with others. We encourage every person to be active in a small group, since community is where personal growth, care, and connectedness occur.
We equip and inspire each believer to use their gifts and calling to show God to all people, because God has created every person on purpose for a purpose.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Bible is the highest source of written authority for God's plan for His people; it reveals how to live out that plan, individually and corporately. Beliefs, practices, and priorities are to be anchored in clear biblical teachings.
Jesus Christ is the defining feature of God's will for all humankind. In Christ is found the highest and most practical meaning and clearest example for holy living or godliness. Christ is both example and strength as we pursue integrity, excellence, faith, hope, and love.
Making disciples is a clear mandate from Christ. This requires a strong focus on evangelism and training in spiritual growth and holy living. Done effectively, this will produce and promote growth and health in and among the church.
Wesleyans respect leadership that is placed over them, while realizing that the authority and effectiveness of spiritual leadership is not primarily bestowed, but earned and manifested by a loving and willing heart of obedience that serves God and mankind gladly.
Wesleyans are called to keep serving the present age. The church respects and builds on its past without becoming its slave. Wesleyans are "culture informed" for the sake of reaching people for Christ, but not "culture captives," in the sense of surrendering core values, beliefs, and behaviors.
Lighthouse Community Church is a ministry of the Wesleyan Church, and therefore falls in line with the practices and beliefs of the Wesleyan Church.
