Becoming a member of the LIGHTHOUSE is much more than signing a piece of paper or learning a secret handshake. We view the desire to join as a sign of commitment to connect, grow, and serve along the others in the church.
Benefits of Joining our Family
Strength and Health:
"Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up."
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NKJV)
A Place to Grow:
"Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,"
I Peter 2:2 (NIV)
A Place to Develop Your Gifts:
"If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen."
I Peter 4:11 (NKJV)
A Happy & Secure Place:
"Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you. Rescue me from my enemies, LORD; I run to you to hide me."
Psalm 143:8-9 (NLT)
"I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete."
John 15:11 (NIV)
A Part of Something Bigger than Yourself
"For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another."
Romans 12:4-5 (NKJV)
"not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
Hebrews 10:25 (NIV)
"For in fact the body is not one member but many. If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?"
I Corinthians 12:14-15 (NKJV)
