Island Lighthouse Church

Shining the light of hope

What do we believe at Island Lighthouse Church?

by Pastor Don on August 12, 2018
We believe that the scriptures are inspired by God.
We believe in the one true God who has revealed Himself to man as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the fall of man.
We believe in the salvation of man that comes through being justified by faith and saved by grace.
We believe in these two ordinances of the church
1. Baptism in water
2.  Holy commuion
We b
elieve in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as a separate and distinct gift from salvation.
We believe in the on-going, progressive sanctification of the believer.
We believe in the church and its mission to make disciples.
We believe that divine healing was made possible through the work of Christ's sacrifice on the cross.
We believe in the blessed hope that Christ will return to this earth.
We believe in the future millennial reign of Christ.
We believe in the final judgment.
We believe in the new heavens and the new earth.
We at Island Lighthouse Church believe that love is the highest ideal that we can have as Christians and that without love it really doesn't matter what doctrines we stand for.  According to the Apostle Paul we are bankrupt without love and all of our words produce nothing but the sound of the "creaking of an old rusty gate or a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal, just an annoying distraction."
Island Lighthouse Church believes in the awesome power of love!

God's great mercy
I, Lorena Calar, was just reading about Noah and the Ark when I came to Genesis 7:16 and 21. At the end of 16, it reads "and the Lord shut them in." Verse 21 reads "And all flesh died that moved upon the face of the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, AND EVERY MAN (emphasis added)." If God had not sealed the Ark, His plan for cleansing the earth wouldn't have happened. If Noah had shut the door, he could have opened it to allow others in after hearing the terrifying cries and screams for help. Imagine hearing your own family members, parents, brothers, sisters, your best friend and you not being able to help them. This was not the fault of Noah nor of God. It was the fault of the the people themselves for not following the will of God.
