Statement of Faith
Statement of Faith
We, as the Lighthouse of Faith, believe we are the Body of Christ, His Bride. We are the Called of God; we are lovers of Christ (Romans 8:28).
We are called to be the salt and light that cannot be hidden, by which the Lord draws men unto Himself (Matthew 5:13-16).
We are among those who believe the whole word of God in its entirety. We believe the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God. God Breathed. Therefore we believe God's Word is sufficient to be our bylaws. We believe it to be more than enough for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness, that we may become complete and thoroughly equipped for every good work (II Timothy 3:16-17).
We believe that in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we are to speak the same thing that there be no divisions among us, that we be perfectly joined together in unity and one accord with the same mind and the same judgment (I Corinthians 1:10).
We completely put all our faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. We believe Jesus is the Son of the Most High God, sent to earth, born of a virgin, conceived of the Holy Spirit, 100% man, 100% God. We believe He walked on the earth in human form and willingly went to the cross of Calvary to pay the whole price for all of our sins, heal us of all manner of sickness, and to set us free from all darkness in our lives. We believe He died and on the third day arose from the grave. He ascended to the Father in Heaven where He is alive and sits at the right hand of the Father, where He is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that there is no other Name by which we must be saved than by Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior (Acts 4:12). We believe that He is the only Way, the only Truth, the only Life, and the only way to Heaven (John 14:6).
We believe in baptism by immersion as an outward sign of obedience (Romans 6:4). We believe in the baptism with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38-39; Acts 2:4).
We believe in the triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the gifts and works of the Holy Spirit, that they be used in accordance to God's Word, and with order to edify and build up the entire Body of Christ. (I Corinthians 12:4-12).
We believe that we are called, not just to this community, but also to the nations. We believe we have been commissioned to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, in and out of season (Matthew 16:15-18). We will proclaim the majesty of God's Word.
We will never shrink back, but, in faith, serve and be dangerous to the kingdom of darkness
