Lighthouse Baptist Church

At the foundation of Lighthouse, our aim is to glorify God in everything that we do.

Verse by Verse Preaching

We preach verse by verse through the Scripture (expository preaching) so that people will hear the very word of God as it is given in context.

Authentic Worship

We use historic and current hymns in modern arrangements with an emphasis on congregational singing.

Collective Bible Study

The Bible changes lives. So we emphasize individual and group interactive studies that help people understand and apply the Word.

Welcoming Community

We have a congregation of people who value the authentic following of Christ and desire to be part of an active community of believers in the Newark area.

Get to Know the Team

Our goal as a leadership team is to submit ourselves to the authority of scripture and give our lives away for the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The best place to start? Join us on a Sunday

Here's a step-by-step overview of our Sunday service

Join us for our Sunday morning worship service at 10:30 AM. We are located on the corner of Old Baltimore Pike and Otts Chapel Rd. in Newark. Our main entrance and exit is off of Otts Chapel Rd.

If you have kids, we are excited to have them join our “Lighthouse Kids” Sunday ministries! If you have nursery age children (0-3 years), one of our greeters will direct you to the nursery in our children’s wing. All other children will begin the service in the main auditorium. During the song service, children K4-4th grade will be dismissed to Junior Church. If staying for our Discipleship Group hour following the morning service, your children will remain in the children’s wing for Sunday School.

Our service will open with a greeting and brief announcements. We will transition into a call to worship with Scripture and time of congregational singing of 3-4 hymns. One of our pastors will preach a verse-by-verse expository message from a book of the Bible we are working through that will last around 45 minutes. We often end our service with a hymn.

Following our Worship service, we transition to our Discipleship Group hour. We have both discussion style groups and teaching style groups to choose from. Greeters in the lobby will be available to direct you to the groups.
