Discipleship Center in Galveston, TX
Lighthouse Family Church believes in Jesus and we strive to be a church that loves God and God’s people. We have a heart for authentic worship, are passionate about the local church and on a mission to see God’s kingdom established across the earth.
Welcome to Lighthouse Family Church
The search to find God in our hearts and in the world around us starts by going to church. When we come together and worship, we’re able to see things clearer. Our questions become answered, our faith is affirmed and our feelings about God are shared with those around us. At Lighthouse Family Church, we welcome you to our worship center in Galveston, TX, so you can experience these things for yourself!
- We believe the Bible is God’s Word: Accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
- We believe in one eternal God, Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
- We believe sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
- We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, as both God and man, is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless, exemplary life, died on the cross in our place and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
- We believe in order to receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth,’ we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and submit to His will for our lives.
- We believe in order to live the holy and fruitful lives God intends for us, we need to be baptized in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
- We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the ‘breaking of bread’.
- We believe God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.
- We believe God wants to heal and transform us so we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively.
- We believe our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.
- We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again, as He promised.
Belief, Rooted in Jesus
The Bible may not answer every question about God—in fact, it will often lead us to ask more. But, one area in the Bible is quite definite: The answer to the question, “who is Jesus?” C.S Lewis—a well-known Christian author—wrote of Jesus:
“Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
Jesus is “the Messiah, the Son of the Living God” (Matthew 16:16). Jesus has the power to change our lives. Jesus is so unique because two worlds collide in him: Heaven and Earth, the Divine and the human.
Yes, His Name is the name above all names, and his storm-calming, miracle- working power has no equal. Yet, He is also the human Jesus, the personal friend who knows what we are going through and cares about us. That’s why the Bible also calls Him “Immanuel,” God with us.
Our mission is to reach and influence the world by building a Christ-centered, Bible-based church, changing minds and empowering people to grow in their most Holy Faith and live lives pleasing to God, the Father, as we expand His Kingdom here on earth.
Ernesto Gomez is the Senior Pastor and visionary behind this assembly of believers. His passion for the local church and desire to see people live a life of purpose and influence, in right relationship with God, fuels everything he and the church do.
Vivian Gomez, Pastor Gomez’ wife of 25 years, brings a contagious zest for life to the church! Vivian passionately believes in the potential of all people and is devoted to the Cause of Christ.
Ernesto and Vivian’s all-consuming desire is to place value on people and relationships. They labor to see healthy men, women and youth emerge from the teaching, preaching and ministries of the Church.
- We’re expanding so we can begin more programs within our community! Pastor Gomez and the board all try to seek God’s will and do good wherever possible.
- We preach what is given by God, no matter if it steps on toes. Pastor Gomez is a former professor and Bible college Dean of Students and is familiar with the true teachings of Jesus Christ.
- We believe in the power of charity. Donations are used only for reason given, not for church operations in any way.
- Our church is Affiliated with Assemblies of God and Christ Together. We believe in spreading the word of God far and wide!
- Our church is non-denominational and we welcome anyone who believes in becoming a better person and living a life of altruism.
