birth of this assembly took place in 1974 at the Linthicum
Women’s Club. In 1981, the church family purchased
the current building located here at 996 Point Pleasant
Road and held it’s first service on December 31st.
June 1, 2002, Reverend Paul A. Murray and First Lady
Rachel M. Murray assumed the pastorate of this assembly.
With a vision built on the foundation of the Word of
God, Pastor Murray and the church family adopted Apostolic
Lighthouse as the new name and expanded mission for
this family of believers for this present day and time.
They immediately began to move forward in seeking the Lord for spiritual growth with this small congregation of 12 members. While leading the membership, they also began renovations and improvements on the building, by giving the interior a much needed face life that included a new sound system, musical instruments and adding a paved parking lot in the summer of 2003. A new sign was also added highlighting the new church name adjacent to the new parking lot.
As the church membership has grown, the second phase of rennovations has moved forward in the beginning of 2004. A central air and heating condition was installed, new siding, and roof were put on the building along with a new steeple to crown off the new improvements and to be a beacon of light shining forth in the darkest of nights. With the growing membership, additional parking was needed and added to the front of the church building and a lighted church sign was installed adjacent to the street.
we continue to grow as a body of believers, we are asking
God to continue to anoint His ministries and to provide
new platforms for us to invigorate the body of Christ
and reach people for Jesus.
Lighthouse is a church dedicated to serving people.
As a result, new programs and ministries have been and
will continue to be birthed in an effort to meet the
many personal and spiritual needs of our communities.
You are warmly invited to join
with us as together we pursue Christ’s mission
“to be a growing family with a passion for
God and compassion for the world.”
