Every church needs to have a purpose statement that answers the question, “Why do we exist?” At Lighthouse Family Church, we filter every idea, program, and budget request through our purpose statement. If what we plan doesn’t help us meet our purpose, then we don’t do it.
Our purpose at Lighthouse Family Church is summarized in a single statement:
“To reach the people of Lafayette with the LOVE OF JESUS and the TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD so that they, turning from darkness, might become FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST.”
Our statement of purpose is based on two teachings of Jesus and Paul:
Matthew 22:36-40 “Jesus said, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart...soul...and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it; Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Ephesians 4:13 “This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.”
Lighthouse Family Church is a place where you will:
Experience freedom in worship
Connect with others through life-giving groups
Share a compassion for the lost
Receive the teaching of God’s Word in love
We are empowering lives to live purposely for Him! You can learn more about our purpose as a church and about how your gifts and calling fit into that purpose during our Next Steps classes. You will also have an opportunity to become a member of LFC.
