Lighthouse Ministry

Purpose

Ephesians 4:11-16, 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Vision Statement

Psalms 68:11, The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.

The word of God will be published throughout the land. To prepare the saints that will go out and publish the word of the Lord. This can be done in every arena of the world. Matthew 6:33, 1 Corinthians 4:20, and Revelations 12:10

Statement of Educational Philosophy

I believe every child of God has the ability to minister. The scriptures instruct us to study to show ourselves approved unto God.

2 Timothy 2: 15-16, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

  • To help ministers of God prepare for the work of the kingdom.
  • To create a hunger for God and His word.
  • To develop proficiency in the declaration of the gospel through proper communication skills.

If you can read and you can listen, you can be educated. If you have the Holy Spirit dwelling within, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
