Our Shared Mission

The Lighthouse Community is a fellowship of friends and pioneers, committed to preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom and making disciples of Jesus across Central and Eastern Europe.

We fellowship together in the Spirit (Phil 2:1) in one-another’s sufferings (Phil 3:10) and in partnership (Gal 2:9) that we might be mutually strengthened, supported and encouraged in this shared mission.

Our Fellowship

We are a covenantal community

  • fellowshipping with God
  • fellowshipping together
  • making disciples of Jesus
  • fulfilling the mission of Jesus

We love and value

  • the Bible, as God’s word to us
  • the Holy Spirit, as God’s powerful presence among us
  • the grace of God
  • the power of persistent prayer
  • meaningful fellowship as family and friends
  • obedience and faithfulness
  • truthfulness and integrity
  • loyalty and love
  • journey before destination
  • diversity of culture and tradition

Our Unity in Christ

As a culturally diverse community we find our unity in Christ, the Word of God and in the Spirit. We embrace the Bible as God’s final authority whilst respecting diversity in our interpretation of the secondary doctrines of scripture.

We seek to build grace-filled and meaningful relationships within which we are able to encourage, strengthen and sharpen each other. Our fellowship together expresses our common desire to fulfil the mission of Christ, to walk in obedience to Christ and to live faithfully under Christ, as his body. We value journey over destination and so our fruitfulness is measured by our faithfulness and obedience to Christ and not by the numbers of people that we gather. We are loyal and loving to one-another, remembering each other in prayer and upholding the dignity and calling of each person. We have an appetite for openness and transparency and so our ways together are marked by simplicity, honesty, personal sacrifice and much affection.

Linda Gulbe - Smiltene, Latvia These past couple of years I have been really challenged about the way in which most churches are run, here in Latvia. I am / was so used to being part of a charismatic church - like those from my Newfrontiers experience - which in my...
