Our purpose: to see Victoria transformed by the gospel of God’s grace!
We believe God can do this through churches that increasingly value Jesus above all things and lives out his mission in all things.
A Gospel Centred Church for Victoria
We measure the success of Lighthouse Church in two ways: loving gospel community and living gospel mission. The radical gospel hope of our gracious God saving us to his family from our sinful rebellion through Jesus is the inner transforming power which will make Lighthouse a loving community. We believe its possible to see real change in each and every person that participates in the life and community of Lighthouse. But this lasting change only comes by each of us more and more valuing Jesus and his grace.
Secondly, we don't want simply to do church-y or religious actions that lead to busy lives rather we want to be a people that intentionally follow our missionary leader Jesus in everyday life. We believe the overarching difference to be made to change our city for Christ is found in the development of churches that that are filled with people who take seriously their call to help others know Jesus like they do in the everyday opportunities of life using the simple means of prayer, loving long term gospel conversations and actions, within faithful community.
Life on Mission
Think the regular 7-days-a-week life of our church community. Daily Mission encompasses the everyday rhythms and responsibilities of life. Lighthouse wants to focus our attention on how the joy of the gospel motivates us to live Christ-like love for our family, friends, and neighbours.More info
BONFIRE – Community Groups: Lighthouse does not focus simply on a weekend gathering or on you individually. We want to be a church that makes disciples of Jesus in community and as communities – helping each other, depending on one another, and serving in our city together. Gospel Community Groups are a multigenerational collection of both Christians and those exploring Christianity, living for a season as a community to value Jesus and live out His mission in a neighbourhood.More Info
STAGE-LIGHT – Sunday Gatherings: We want to publicly place Jesus on center stage in our lives and community. We love our times of worship, as we sing, hear the Bible preached, have children’s ministry, take offerings, celebrate the Lord’s Supper and Baptisms, as well as host potluck dinners. Each week we trust God will meet and change us as we focus our worship and value on him. We trust that God uses his church as it gathers in a very purposeful and unique way to bring the gospel to us and our city.Sunday Info
Denomination, Doctrines, Beliefs
It's hard to summarize quickly. We could say we are a Gospel centred, Bible believing, Evangelical, Reformed, Presbyterian, Missional church. We are very thankful for not being alone as a church. God has provided us a home in the small but strong historic evangelical denomination - Presbyterian Church in (North) America. We are also grateful for or network partners C2C and the Grace Network.More on beliefs
