Lighthouse Gospel Ministries is a soul-winning, Evangelistic Outreach Ministry. It is a ministry of reconciliation, reaching out to people in our local communities and the rest of the world with the gospel message of salvation from sin, God’s love, grace and mercies for all, through Jesus Christ.
Our Lord Jesus Christ has called us to shine as His light and carry the light of His Word to our communities, towns, villages, cities and nations; where spiritual darkness has dominated. We are passionate about sharing the unconditional love, amazing grace and indescribable mercy of God, with as many people as we come in contact. We therefore aim to reach Christians, non-Christians and non-church going people with this Good News of God’s unconditional love for all.
Every Saturday, we go out on the street to tell people about our Lord and Saviour – Jesus Christ. We share gospel tracts and witness to people by engaging them in conversations about Jesus Christ. As we speak to and engage with people on the street, we see a lack of knowledge and understanding about God – Jesus Christ. Many people don’t want to stop to hear our message, while some say things like “I’m alright”, “No thanks”, “Not for me, thanks” etc. We see people who have turned their backs on God by rejecting the message of the Gospel of Salvation.
In many instances, we sow the seeds of God’s word in the hearts of those who stop and listen to us, other times we water seeds that have already been sown; and other times God gives the increase when a person accepts and confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
“And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.” Matthew 4:18-20.
For over 3years, we have been sharing this message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Brentwood High Street or Shenfield High Street. We have been using, as it were, a fishing rod which can only catch one fish at a time. Some days we catch one fish (a person becomes born again) while other times we don’t catch any, just sowing or watering seeds. We felt we needed a net – a big net, to bring in the harvest of souls waiting for the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Salvation preached to them and they in turn, by the working of the Holy Spirit, would receive Jesus Christ in their hearts as their Lord and Saviour.
To this end, we have secured the grounds at the Brentwood Leisure Centre to host this community outreach event tagged Brentwood Gospel Festival 2017 on Sat 12th August 2017. A stage with PA system would be set up for this event that would feature the ministry of praise and worship, as well as the preaching of the Gospel of Salvation and praying for people.
Other proposed activities lined up for the day include football, summer fete games, bouncy castle, popcorn & candy stalls, food stalls etc. We believe and trust God that this community outreach event will bring people in and around Brentwood to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
We hereby solicit the support of Churches, Ministries and Christians in and around Brentwood to take advantage of this great opportunity of the body of Christ serving our community and to get involved in this soul winning campaign. Here are the ways you can support us: 1. Prayers – “… The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.” James 5:16b. Please pray for the presence of the Holy Spirit to bring people into an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. 2. Partner with us – We require church choirs/worship teams, counsellors and youth ministries from various churches to play an active role. 3. Invite friends and neighbours – Your willingness to bring a friend(s)/loved one(s) will go a long way towards the progress of this gospel campaign. 4. Volunteer - need volunteers willing to work as ushers, stewards, meters & greeters etc 5. Give financially – Your seed of faith (money) sown into this ministry, will enable us spread the Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ to more people. Many thanks in advance for your faithful support, God richly bless you! On Behalf of the Team,
