The story so far…

The Lighthouse Church was established as Bethel Church in 1946. Mrs. Dimmer, along with a small group of people, who believed that the time was right to begin a new expression of the life of Jesus in Sandown.

Over the next 70 years, God brought together a family of his people from all walks of life and nationalities. They have established a firm foundation to build upon. Then during 2017 God gave us a Vision of a Lighthouse for identity, moving forward into the new season, with a purpose of:

Reaching the Lost
Discipling the Found
Serving the Risen King

It is our desire to communicate in words and actions the “Good News” of the Kingdom of God, inviting all to enter in, becoming disciples of Jesus.

so why the lighthouse?

Pastors Drew & Kerry Jenks, over a number of years, have sought God for a Vision on what He wants His church to look like. The Vision of the Lighthouse was inspired by God for what it represents.

  • Powerful Light – Jesus, the Light of the World shining in the Darkness.
  • Thick Walls – Providing a place of refuge.
  • Solid Foundation – His Church is built upon the Rock.

We are the keepers of The Lighthouse Church, the Church belongs to Jesus.
