WE ARE LIGHTHOUSE
ONE CHURCH IN THREE LOCATIONS
OUR HEART is that Lighthouse exists to connect people to God. The church is full of people who have discovered an incredible richness of life that comes from having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We help people to experience a God who is vibrant, joyful and powerful. He cares about you as an individual and Jesus said that He came to earth that we might have a life of abundance (John 10:10). God’s presence brings a sense of excitement and a fullness of spirit and this understanding of God is reflected in the enthusiastic and upbeat nature of our church services. Our message is one of faith, hope and love. We have a united vision to build the church by connecting people to God, connecting people to people and also empowering people for effective, joyful service.

We Believe there is one God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit
We Believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God; in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, victorious and atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, His constant intercession and imminent return.
We Believe in the person and work of the Holy Spirit with His fruits and gifts available in the Church.
We Believe the Bible is the living word of God – infallible, authoritative and everlasting, and the foundation of all Christian doctrine.
We Believe in the existence of an evil spiritual being – the devil.
We Believe in the spiritually lost condition of all people and the essential need for the ‘new birth’ by faith in Jesus Christ.
We Believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a gift available to every believer subsequent to the new birth, with normal evidence of speaking in other tongues.
We Believe in the sacraments of the Lord’s Supper and baptism by full immersion in water for all believers.
We Believe in the resurrection of both saved and the lost people, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting separation from God.
We Believe in the church being the body of Christ, and each member being an active part of a local church, fulfilling the Great Commission.
