About Lighthouse Christian Church Church

Non-denominational 251-500 people

Lighthouse Christian Church was planted in 2001 by Faith Bible Church in Seattle, WA, with a desire to reach people for Jesus on the Eastside (Bellevue, Washington area). With an average attendance of about 400-500 (including children) on an average Sunday (pre-Covid), Lighthouse is a diverse community of people of all ages.

We understand that many people today long for a deeper experience of the spiritual dimension of life for themselves and for their families. We're growing closer to God and becoming a community in which God's grace and truth inform and enrich all of life through vibrant worship, practical biblical teaching and caring relationships.

Our mission is, "To share God's grace and truth so that people come to know, love and serve Jesus Christ." Our vision is, "We want God to be seen, we want people to feel loved, and we want lives to be changed into the likeness of Jesus." We're a come-as-you-are kind of church where God's love, acceptance and forgiveness can be found. Together we're discovering that those who follow Jesus need no longer walk in darkness, for they have the light of life. (John 8:12)
