Our mission is to introduce people to Jesus Christ, to help people mature in their relationship with Christ and to motivate people to show their love for Christ to others.
Just as Jesus Christ came "not to be ministered unto, but to minister...", we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. This applies both within our church family as well as outside of our fellowship.
Here at ALC we realize that we have a great commission ahead of us and when you visit with us, we hope that you will see us striving to reach it using various methods of preaching the gospel, teaching biblical doctrine, praise and worship of our creator, and encouraging one another.
Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian friendship and fellowship. That is why we make it a priority to build lasting bonds between our regular attendees - bonds of concern and genuine commitment to one another. Our circle of care is growing and we would love for it to include you.
Pastor Barry Coomer
In 1974 founding Pastor Howard Moran started the congregation known as Seventh Street Apostolic Church and over the next 32 years, took the church through 2 location changes and a building program. The name of the church was formally changed in 1998 to Apostolic Lighthouse Church. In 2006 after 32 years Bro. Moran assumed the position as Bishop of this congregation and Barry Coomer was installed as Pastor. Bro. & Sis. Moran continued to serve faithfully until their passing in 2016.
Barry Coomer along with his wife Melissa served as youth leader from 1995 until 2006 just prior to accepting the position as Pastor. Pastor Coomer has served in various offices throughout his ministry and since 2014 has served as Section 1 Secretary for the Kentucky District United Pentecostal Church International.
As a Spirit-filled, Bible-based church, we seek to worship God in Spirit and truth according to worship practices found in the word of God, the Holy Bible.
We raise our hands because 1 Timothy 2:8 says “I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands.”
We clap our hands because Psalm 47:1 says “O clap your hands, all ye people.”
We sing and play music because Ephesians 5:19 says to worship “in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,” and Psalm 150 says to praise God with musical instruments.
We worship with a joyful noise because Psalm 66:1 says “Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands.”
We pray aloud because the early church “lifted up their voice to God with one accord” in prayer (Acts 4:24).
We dance in the Spirit because Psalm 149:3 says “Let them praise his name in the dance.”
We anoint with oil and pray over the sick because the Bible says "Is there any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord", James 5:14
We include testimonials, teaching, preaching, and allow for the operation of spiritual gifts because 1 Corinthians 14:26 says “Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation.”
