A safe haven for those in desperate need
Since 1923, Lighthouse Mission Ministries has provided shelter, meals, and compassionate services to men, women, and children of Whatcom County in need – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Lighthouse Mission Ministries (LMM) has grown to a four-building campus and now includes nine different overnight shelters, a drop-in center, an eye clinic, and a childcare center. As a Christian gospel ministry, LMM is completely supported by our generous local community (Tax ID 91-0659437).
The LMM Foundation also supports the Mission with expansion projects and large non-general fund purchases.
Statement of Faith
- We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the infallible, authoritative Word of God.
- We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return to power and glory.
- We believe in the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
- We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
- We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
- We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
