What We Believe

The following statements simply summarize what we believe as a church family. We believe the Bible and teach it because it is perfectly true. Every belief and teaching of Lighthouse Baptist Church flows from God’s Word. For a more detailed account and description of our doctrine, feel free to request a doctrinal statement from the church office.

We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God and that it is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

God is a Person, eternally existing as a Trinity in unity — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — three Persons and yet one God.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 8:6)

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ, eternally existing, is the only begotten Son of God, Who became a sinless man to redeem us. He was born of a virgin and was both God and man.
(Luke 1:30-35; John 1:1-15; Philippians 2:5-8)

The local church is a group of believers baptized by water and banded together for edification, exhortation, and evangelism as commanded by Christ in the Great Commission, preaching the Gospel to every creature.
(Mark 16:15; 1 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 1:22-23)

Man was created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death, but spiritual death or eternal separation from God. Now all of mankind exists as a fallen race with an inherited sinful nature.
(Genesis 2:16; Genesis 3:16-19; Romans 3:10-23; Romans 6:23)

Sacrifice of Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died as a substitutionary payment for the sins of the whole world. He physically arose from the dead and then ascended into Heaven. Simple faith in this sacrifice is the only way of salvation for mankind.
(Luke 24; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 5:8-10; 1 Peter 3:18)

End Times
Jesus Christ Himself will soon come again in the air to catch up His Church to reward their service. The unbelievers left behind will go through a period called the Tribulation.  Christ will then return to the earth to set up His kingdom of one thousand years of righteous rule. Then the unbelievers of all ages will stand at the Great White Throne to be judged and cast into the Lake of Fire, separated from God forever. The believers will spend eternity in the fullness of joy in Heaven with the Lord.
(Matthew 24:29-42; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; Revelation 19:11-20)
