Just before ascending back into Heaven, Jesus Christ gave to His disciples what is called the Great Commission. “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) The disciples had been tasked with sharing the Gospel message with their own city of Jerusalem, the surrounding region, and ultimately the entire world. What an awesome privilege that was, and at the same time what an overwhelming responsibility it was as well.
That task remains the same today for believers and churches alike. For 35+ years Lighthouse Baptist Church has been a beacon of hope to the people of Reno/Sparks, but its reach does not end there. By partnering with and supporting more than 40 missionaries and missions’ projects sent out by local Independent Baptist churches, Lighthouse Baptist is able to have a part in getting the gospel to more than 20 countries world-wide. These missionaries are supported financially by the faithful faith promise missions giving of the members of Lighthouse Baptist Church.
