Our Story

Lighthouse Church is a church of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) an international church in over 195 countries. We are a church plant of House of Praise, Toronto. The church launched on August 13, 2017 with the core team comprising of a handful of adults.

Since then, we have grown and our reach extended into the city. A constant phrase among our teams is ‘what we do matters’ as we have witnessed many decide for Christ and take meaningful next steps on their journey. The transformation we see among us is humbling. We eagerly anticipate what lies ahead knowing the best is yet to come!

Our Mandate

  • We exist to inspire and empower YOU to fulfill your Destiny
  • We exist to touch the city of Ottawa with the love of God

Our Vision

Our Vision is to see God’s will being done in Canada as it is in Heaven.

We see a day when Canada represents the principles of Jesus. A day when an army of purposeful men and women will be at the vanguard of every sector applying God’s kingdom principles.

We see a day in the future when multitudes of men and women of every cultural heritage will be on their way to churches across the city of Ottawa; a day when the young and old will be passionate about Jesus and touching lives with His love.

Thus, on Sundays as on weekdays, highways and side streets city-wide will be busy as pedestrians, motorists and bikers alike flood the streets on a mission to participate in worship experiences across the city.

Our Values

These form our fabric and caption how we live. We want to be known for our:

  • Love
  • Excellence
  • Service
  • Spirituality
  • Honor

Our Beliefs

The Bible
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.

The Trinity
God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons – The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.

The Father
God is great: He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God is good. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises.

The Son
Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time, completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have life

The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit’s presence assures us of our relationship with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.

Eternity
Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.

Man
Man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated in that relationship. Thus, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

Salvation
The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.

The Church
The Church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.

Our Team

Our dream team of servant leaders are marked by their passion for people and God’s house. These are the true heroes of the Lighthouse Story. They are convinced that what they do (serving God through serving people) matters and aim for every encounter to be life-giving.

The team is led by DEJI and Bukky who are privileged to serve as pastors. They are uniquely gifted to connect with people from all walks of life, teach God’s Word with simplicity and inspire hope in a dark world. They love hanging out with family and are avid supporters of the Golden State Warriors.
