Missions Team Formed
Lighthouse Bible Church is working to reach the nations to share the gospel of Christ in BIG ways! Our Missions Team was formed August 7, 2016 and is headed by Karen Pasquariello. Lighthouse has supported a missionary in Africa for over two years now and has also supported short term missions trips to Haiti for multiple missionaries. For a small church, we have a mighty large reach!
Our mission statement is: Lighthouse seeks to develop passionate disciples of Jesus Christ who desire to know God and make Him known. Accordingly, it shall be the policy of this church to support home and foreign missions engaged in carrying out the New Testament program of missions as set forth in Matt 28:19-20 and Eph 4:11-12
Fulfilling the Great Commission would include many areas as follows:
Evangelization of the lost through the proclamation of the gospel. (Mark 16:5; Luke 24:46, 47; Romans 10:13-15; 1 Cor 9:18-23)
Making disciples (Matt 28:19; 1 Cor 11:1; Luke 6:40)
Teaching Bible doctrine (Matt 28:20; Col 1:28; 2Tim 4:1-3)
Church planting (Matt 17:16-18)
Church leadership development (2 Tim 2:2)
Church development (Eph 4:11-14; Acts 20:28)
Minister to the totality of human need by providing food, shelter, and clothing to those in need (Matt 10:42; Matt 25:31-46; Luke 16:19-31)
Translation and dissemination of the Scriptures (Nehemiah 8:8; Acts 2:8-11; Acts 10:13-17; Rev 5:9)
While it is recognized that the physical and social needs of man may need to be met as part of a Gospel ministry, the emphasis of missions is upon meeting the spiritual needs of mankind.
