Our Beliefs

 


At
The Lighthouse Church
we believe...

 


  1. We believe in God, the Father, eternal and almighty, creator of all things. Ephesians 3:9; 4:6

  1. In Jesus Christ, that He is the Son of God.  In His virgin birth, His death, His resurrection and His ascension.

  1. We believe in the Holy Ghost, that He is the third person in the triune Godhead; and the divine Spirit through whom the Father and the Son work. John 15:26; 14:16

  1. We believe in the new birth, that when a sinner believes that Lord Jesus died for him and has the power to forgive and take away sin, he receives forgiveness, and he is made a new creature in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:9

  1. We believe we must have a conscience void of offense toward God and man, teaching us to make all wrongs right that we have committed according to Matthew 5:23.

  1. We believe in sanctification, that through the finished work of Jesus, we receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness that is both progressive and definite. - Romans 5:17       
       Definitions:
  1. Sanctify – To make sacred or holy. To set apart for religious use. To secure from violation.

  2. Holy – To set apart to the service of God. Sacred, pure, guiltless.

  3. Righteousness – Purity of heart, uprightness.

                        Progressive:

  • By His Blood (Jesus) once and for all – Hebrews 13:12; 10:10
  • By Faith – Acts 15:9; 26:18
  • By the Holy Ghost (not us) – Romans 15:16; Philippians 2:13
  • By the Word and Truth – Ephesians 5:26,27; John 17:17
                        Definite:
  • Definition: Certain, Clear, Exact (by the God of peace, Himself)
    I Thessalonians. 5:23

  1. We believe in the water baptism by immersion, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, as recommended by Jesus Christ our Lord. Matthew 28:19

  1. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost, that He is the endument of power from on high upon the clean, sanctified life.  When we receive the Holy Ghost, it is accompanied by the same signs as the disciples had on the day of Pentecost. i.e., Speaking with tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:3,4

  1. We believe that every child of God should strive for perfection. Matthew 5:48 - Not by our own efforts, by the Spirit - "For of this I am confident, that He who has begun a good work within you will go on to perfect it in preparation for the day of Jesus Christ."  Philippians 1:6

  1. We believe in the Divine church built by Jesus Christ; that it embraces and includes everyone who is born into the household of faith.  We believe that membership in the Divine church is obtained by the new birth and not by any other method. Matthew 16:16-18.

  1. We believe in divine healing, that God has provided in Jesus Christ, complete healing of all diseases, and the prayer of faith will save the sick. Matthew 16:18; James 5:14-15

  1. We believe in Bible signs following them that believe, but in no case do we tolerate fanaticism of heresy.  We believe that when God confirms His word with signs following, it will bring edification to His church and glory to God. Mark 16:17; I John 1:7

  1. We believe in the spiritual gifts for the divine church, and that the operation of these gifts bring edification, and that all gifts MUST operate according to the scriptures; I Corinthians. 12:1; “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.” v. 25:  That there be no schism (divisions) in the body.”  The gifts outlined in the bible include; wisdom; knowledge; faith; gifts of healing; working of miracles; prophecy (foretelling of an event that is unseen); discerning of spirits (penetrating, perceiving); divers kinds of tongues.

  1. We believe in the holy communion I Corinthians 11:23-25

  1. We believe that every Christian should abstain from the filthiness of the flesh from which we are told to cleanse ourselves. I Corinthians 7:1

  1. We believe in the support of the ministry, that they who preach the Gospel and that the laborer is worthy of his hire.  We believe that every Christian should dedicate a portion of his income to the Lord as the Lord has prospered him. I Timothy 5:17-18   We believe that it is God’s plan for Christian people to put as much as one tenth (1/10) of their income into their home church.

  1. We believe that every person professing salvation should have a home church and devote themselves in fellowship. They should be interested enough in that church to aid in its up keep, financially, as well as spiritually. Acts 2:42

  1. We believe the coming of Christ will be just as literal and visible as was His going away. Acts 1:11

  1. We believe that God, at the Great White Throne Judgment, will finally judge the wicked dead, according to their works. Revelation 20:11-14
    And no believer will be judged that day as the final judgement is reserved for all who rejected the Lord Jesus Christ on earth. John 5:24
