The Lighthouse Family Life Helpline Ministry site is all about the family and how to make your life & marriage count in the Kingdom of God. The Love of God is the Bedrock of all Relationships.


INTRODUCTION

 The name “The Lighthouse” was given to the ministry by the Holy Spirit. You may want to ask what a lighthouse is and who is a lighthouse?

The Webster dictionary defines a lighthouse as a tall permanent structure equipped with a usually revolving beacon light giving a signal to warn ships at night or in fog of the proximity of rocks, shores etc.

A lighthouse can also be defined as a distinctive structure built on or near a shore which exhibits a light of distinctive characteristic to serve as an aid to navigation.

Spiritually, as we journey through the sea of life we need a tall permanent structure equipped with distinctive light to warn us of imminent dangers, potholes, pitfalls etc on the way.

Jesus is our Lighthouse, He knows the way; the charts and maps for our journey are in His Hands John 12:46; John 14:6, as we turn to Him for guidance and protection we will not be drowned in the torrent of the waves and storms of life.

This ministry was birthed by God as a Resource Center for teaching, training and equipping men and women to effectively develop families that will change the society we live in.

A society is only as strong as its families. Abraham Lincoln said that “The strength of a nation lies in the homes of its people”.

Raising a family today is complicated; we know that people have great potentials to significantly improve and strengthen their marriages and families, but they are not sure how to make it happen.

The Bible begins in Genesis with the marriage of a man and a woman, and ends in the Book of Revelation with the marriage of Christ with His Bride – Church. In between, God provided timeless blueprints for marriage and family, which when followed with a spirit of meekness, humility and obedience provide us with the God’s way of maintaining healthy family system.

Many people lack the concept of how to maintain a successful marriage and raise godly children who will become responsible adults. Many proclaim that family values are important, but only significant few actually knows what family values really are.

A strong family system with strong family values produces a strong nation.

We Christians, like other people have often denied the biblical truth of the family system by the way we live. Our desire therefore should be to live by the help of the Holy Spirit in accordance with the principles stated in the Word of God and also to pass these principles on to the next generation, so that Jesus will be honored and glorified in our lives and families.

The Ministry believes in the power and value of the family as ordained by God, we are committed to supporting and strengthening families by bringing the power of God’s Word to those who dares to make a difference in their families and marriages.

The Family is God’s Image Bearer in the Earth; it is the backbone of the Christian Church and the Society as a whole. In order to have a solid Christian church and society we must uphold, strengthen and continue to build on the biblical frame work of the marital institution and family system established by God.

The Lighthouse Family Life Helpline Ministry is to be used by God to navigate us through the sea of life in the area of our marriages and family life for the sole purpose of producing a blemish free family system that will be the envy of our world.

Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever, He will take us from where we are now in our marital life to where we ought to be. He is The Lighthouse, He said in John 8:12 “I am the Light of the world whosoever believes in me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life”.

The Lord is the LIGHTHOUSE in the life of every Christian.

The life of a Christian travels like the ship through waves of trials and rocks of tribulations. The beacon of light is the Word of God, directing each vessel to a worthier, safer place. Current from raging waters tempts each vessel to turn away from the light and travel recklessly through the blackness of night towards ultimate destruction.

This temptation can only be overcome by putting complete faith in the Lord’s beacon and allowing Him to be the Captain of the Christian soul.

The Lighthouse Family Life Helpline Ministry believes that the family as ordained by God – man, woman and children is under attack from every direction. These attacks must be countered with relative efforts from the Body of Christ in  the area of teaching, support, prayer and discipleship if there is to be a legacy of faith to hand over to the next generation.
