About Lighthouse Christian Church

Maria VonTrapp and Oliva Baker at Lighthouse Christian ChurchOur Mission:

The Lighthouse Christian Church is called to radiate and reveal the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ to radically impact and transform lives.

Our Vision:

We are a Light that pierces the darkness. We are a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden. We are a beacon of hope for the hopeless. We are helping people discover the path of salvation and liberation through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Lighthouse Christian Church Pastor and Elders Praying For Dan SalamehWe are a church full of intercessory prayer warriors. All of us are actively engaged in praying faith-filled prayers for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our city, state and region. Our prayers have opened the heavens and have literally changed the atmosphere over our city. We are praying that all who live and work in Montpelier are coming under the conviction of God and they will respond to the message of salvation. Prayer meetings are taking place weekly. We are a house of fervent prayer.

Lighthouse Christian Church WorshipWe are a church that loves to worship God. We are hungry for the manifest presence of God. We are no longer interested in dead religion or playing church. We want to encounter the Living God. We express our love to Him every day but especially during our corporate meetings. Our praises have broken down demonic strongholds and have brought healing to many. We rejoice always. Our worship is intimate and it expresses the deep affection in our hearts for God. We sing, shout, dance, and celebrate with joyful hearts. We want God’s face and not just His hand. One day in His courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. We have a passion for His presence.

We are a church that is solidly committed to the truth of God’s Word. We are not just hearers of the Word, but we are doers. We are committed to making disciples and teaching believers the principles of a victorious and overcoming life.

We are a church that is building strong Biblical families. Our families are receiving top priority care and nurture. Our marriages are healthy and growing strong through intimacy with God.

We are a church that is committed to missions outreach around the world. We are helping many people find their destiny on the mission fields. Of the world. We have many active missionaries in other countries and we are supporting them prayerfully and financially. We take the Great Commission seriously. Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation (Mark 16:15)
