Here at Light­house Church, our rea­son for exis­tence, our pur­pose, the fuel that keeps us going, the #1 thing we desire to share is Jesus. We believe Him to be the Cre­ator and Source of joy, peace, love, wis­dom, and power of which we desire to share and exhort as much as we can. There are hun­dreds of tes­ti­monies of lives trans­formed through Jesus in the Light­house, and we desire to encounter and be a part of many more.

Sin Destroys

Every­thing wrong with the world can be summed up in one word, sin. Sin is the cause of all of our suf­fer­ing. It brings sad­ness, anger, depres­sion, and decay. Apart from Jesus, we are bound to this destruc­tive force. We are enslaved to the very thing that destroys us. We embrace it as it kills us and those around us. With­out Jesus, there is no hope. We are doomed to liv­ing joy­less lives lead­ing to eter­nal suf­fer­ing. Sin is the cause of every­thing we hate, and alone, we can do noth­ing about it.

Jesus Rescues

How­ever, we do have hope. Jesus died the death we should of died to give us hope and new life which we do not deserve. Jesus’ death on the cross once and for all freed us from our sin and gave us hope in hav­ing a new life. The cost for Him was heavy, but the gift He gives us is free. Jesus is our hope. Jesus gives us life. Jesus brings peace. Sin has been con­quered, and all we have to do is acknowl­edge His sac­ri­fice, ask for His salvation, and repent of our sin to obtain this life that He offers.

Jesus Offers a Relationship

Jesus has already saved us from our sin by His death on the cross, but the story doesn’t end there. He rose from death and is seated on a throne in Heaven. He exists, and He desires to have a rela­tion­ship with us. He wants us to get to know Him bet­ter. He speaks to us through His Word, the Bible and lis­tens to us when we come to Him in prayer. He under­stands us bet­ter than any­one else and can relate to us despite being set apart from us. He became human and lived as we live. He under­stands our pain, suf­fer­ing, lone­li­ness, and loss. He expe­ri­enced it, and His heart breaks when we suf­fer through it. We can come to Him with our prob­lems and desires, and He will lis­ten to us.

This is why Light­house Church focuses on Jesus. He gen­uinely changes lives, and He is wor­thy of our wor­ship. How­ever, Sun­day morn­ings and week­day small groups are not enough to  get to know Him. His Word is a great resource to get to know Him bet­ter. We encour­age you to read the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, to under­stand Him bet­ter and to see what He has accom­plished. If you don’t own a Bible, we’d be happy to give you one on a Sun­day. In the mean­time, you can read the Bible online here:
