Our Beliefs

 

Lighthouse Community Church is a ministry of The Wesleyan Church.

 

The Wesleyan Church is an evangelical, Protestant denomination organized for worldwide outreach. We offer good news that faith in Jesus Christ makes possible a wonderful personal relationship with God, a holy life empowered by His Spirit for witness and service, and assurance of eternal life in heaven. Our name is in honor of John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, whose emphasis on a life of faith, self-discipline, and perfect love is our example.

 

The Wesleyan Church has over 400,000 constituents in 5,000 churches and missions in 80 countries of the world.

 

Lighthouse Community Church (LCC) - A Wesleyan Ministry is a part of the West Michigan District of the Wesleyan Church. Fifty-eight churches stretching from Lake Michigan to Lansing and Grand Rapids to the Indiana state line make up our district. LCC is among the leaders in attendance and missions giving in our district and denomination.

 

The cornerstones of our belief are:

 

BIBLICAL AUTHORITY: The Bible is the highest source of written authority for God's plan for His people; it reveals how to live out that plan, individually and corporately. Beliefs, practices, and priorities are to be anchored in clear biblical teachings.

 

CHRISTLIKENESS: Jesus Christ is the defining feature of God's will for all humankind. In Christ is found the highest and most practical meaning and clearest example for holy living or godliness. Christ is both example and strength as we pursue integrity, excellence, faith, hope, and love.

 

DISCIPLE-MAKING: Making disciples is a clear mandate from Christ. This requires a strong focus on evangelism and training in spiritual growth and holy living. Done effectively, this will produce and promote growth and health in and among the church.

 

SERVANT LEADERSHIP: Wesleyans respect leadership that is placed over them, while realizing that the authority and effectiveness of spiritual leadership is not primarily bestowed, but earned and manifested by a loving and willing heart of obedience that serves God and mankind gladly.

 

CULTURAL RELEVANCE: Wesleyans are called to keep serving the present age. The church respects and builds on its past without becoming its slave. Wesleyans are "culture informed" for the sake of reaching people for Christ, but not "culture captives," in the sense of surrendering core values, beliefs, and behaviors.
