We at Lighthouse Bible church would like to share a little bit about ourselves with you so that you can get to know us as one of the newest Bible believing and teaching churches in Riverton as of December 2010.
We believe and teach that the Bible is the Word of God and the authority for our faith and practice. You are welcome to stop by and pick up a copy of our doctrinal statement and By-laws if you would like more information about what we believe, teach and practice.
Lighthouse Bible church is a non-denominational church that practices the biblical form of church government where the Elder’s lead and Shepherd and the Deacons assist and, together, we serve the people of our congregation.
Our service times include a Sunday school Bible lesson, for all ages, at 9:30 am and the Worship service at 10:30 am. Sunday evening we have a Soup & Study starting at 5:30 pm.
We have a Wednesday evening High School Youth Group and separate Middle School Youth Group that starts at 6:30 pm with a meal followed by a Bible study ending at 8:00 pm. You can call 463-0988 for more details
We celebrate the Lord’s table on the first Sunday of the month.
If you are unsure of where you believe God to be leading you to worship, just know that you are always welcome here anytime and that we will endeavor to preach and teach the word of God so that you can grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If you are unsure or you have doubts about whether you are a born again Christian, we want to help you understand what it truly means to be a child of God, to be a true born again believer.
The Bible says, and we at Lighthouse Bible Church believe and teach, that:
God is the creator of heaven and earth and that He is holy, righteous, perfect and just.
He created mankind on the earth and the first man, Adam, disobeyed God and brought sin and death into the world. The Bible says that ‘through one man, sin entered the world and death through sin, so death passed upon all men because all have sinned and the wages of sin is death.’
This pronouncement of sin and death has been passed on to every generation so that everyone born today is born in sin and separated from God because of their sin, because all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, the Bible says.
We teach that if a person never has their sins forgiven by God and dies in their sin they will end up in a place the Bible calls hell which is described as outer darkness, weeping and gnashing of teeth and eternal pain and torment, just to name a few.
We also teach that God, though He must punish sin because He is a holy and just God, loved the world so much that He was willing to punish someone else in our place.
That someone else was His own Son Jesus Christ. God came to earth in the person of Jesus Christ and He lived a holy, perfect, sinless life because He was God in human form.
And he willingly took the punishment we deserve by suffering and bleeding and dying a cruel death on a cross for our sins, not His.
God accepted the perfect sacrifice and death of His own Son for our sins and showed His acceptance by raising Jesus from the dead so that we could be declared righteous before Him.
Jesus conquered death and is alive today and is the only way for someone to be saved from their sin and death and to get to heaven. He said ‘I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through Me’. He also said ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, yet shall he live and whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.
Our sin deserves death and hell. Jesus suffered and died in our place to open the way for us to be saved from our sin and to get to heaven.
What is your part in all of this? You need to believe all that you have just heard and you need to repent of your sin that nailed Jesus to the cross and you need to put your faith and trust in Christ alone to get you to heaven.
Salvation from sin is a free gift. The Bible says ‘for by grace you are saved through faith and that not of yourself, it is a gift of God not of works’.
