Welcome to the Lighthouse Pentecostal Church of God site. We are a group of believers who want to share the love of Jesus Christ not only through our words, but also through our actions and lives. We accept and believe the Bible to be the literal Word of God, inspired through the Holy Spirit. We preach, teach and believe in the power of God to transform lives. No matter who you are or what you have been through there is HOPE and we will welcome you with open arms and will offer any support you may need. Join us Sunday Mornings at 10:00 am and Wednesdays at 7:00 pm. On Wednesdays we have a special youth service for children ages 4 through high school while the adults have a Bible Study together in our Fellowship Hall. We look forward to meeting and getting to know you. Please continue to browse the site for detailed information.

Jesus Loves You and We Love You Too!
