Lighthouse Baptist Church is the result of 21 years of prayers for the Harris County area.
In 1974, Brother Jack Wood came to Shady Acres Baptist Church as Pastor. He had a burden for this area and the world.
From this burden came a:
- Jail and Prison Ministry
- Downtown Rescue Mission
- Nursing Home Ministry
- Street Preaching Ministry
- 15+ families as Missionaries all over the World
In 1995, Brother Danny Farley came to Shady Acres Baptist Church as Pastor, and God gave Pastor Farley a vision to go with our burden.
Since 2000 Shady Acres Baptist Church has asked God to allow Her to Plant 20 Churches in this area over the next 20 years, and Lighthouse Baptist Church is the third such Church to be started from this burden and vision.
We praise God for hearing our prayers!
What We Believe
Lighthouse Baptist Church is a Fundamental Independent Baptist Church. We are a group of Born-again believers (true Christians).
As Fundamentalists, we believe the King James Bible to be the infallible, inerrant, and inspired Holy Word of God. The Bible is therefore our final authority in matters of Faith and Practice.
The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.7 Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. Psalm 12:6,7
I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. Ecclesiastes 3:14
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. II Timothy 3:15-17
We believe a godly, holy, modest life is a happier life than that which the world or religion can offer; where men can be men and women can be women and not have to live the stereotypical lives society has created.
As Independents, we choose and support our own Missionaries. 100% of the money given for them goes to them and their work to start and maintain local churches! We are not a member of an association, convention, fellowship, brotherhood or lodge.
We only desire to: Exalt the Saviour, Edify the Saints, and Evangelize Sinners.
Our Pastor is Philip Dunn. He is a native Texan and has lived in the Houston area since 1980. He has been saved since 1972 and has spent many of those years singing and preaching across the country.
He has been Music Director, Adult Sunday School Teacher, Instructor for Bible Institute and New Converts Classes, Volunteer Chaplain for Harris County and for Texas Department of Criminal Justice, and an active tithing member of a local Church since salvation.
