Core Values

We Are A Christian People

As members of the Church Universal, we join with all true believers in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ and in affirming the historic Trinitarian creeds and beliefs of the Christian faith. We value our Wesleyan-Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience.

We Are a Holiness People

God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to do in us a second work of grace, called by various terms including "entire sanctification" and "baptism with the Holy Spirit"-cleansing us from all sin, renewing us in the image of God, empowering us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves, and producing in us the character of Christ. Holiness in the life of believers is most clearly understood as Christlikeness.

We Are a Missional People

We are a sent people, responding to the call of Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to go into all the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ and participating with God in the building of the Church and the extension of His kingdom (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 6:1). Our mission (a) begins in worship, (b) ministers to the world in evangelism and compassion, (c) encourages believers toward Christian maturity through discipleship, and (d) prepares women and men for Christian service through Christian higher education.

Beliefs

Statement of Belief

These are the beliefs Nazarenes hold to be true:

We believe in one God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, given by plenary inspiration, contain all truth necessary to faith and Christian living.

We believe that man is born with a fallen nature, and is, therefore, inclined to evil, and that continually.

We believe that the finally impenitent are hopelessly and eternally lost.

We believe that the atonement through Jesus Christ is for the whole human race; and that whosoever repents and believes on the Lord Jesus Christ is justified and regenerated and saved from the dominion of sin.

We believe that believers are to be sanctified wholly, subsequent to regeneration, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth, and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

We believe that our Lord will return, the dead will be raised, and the final judgment will take place.

Our Staff

REV. LAURA MCKELLAR
LEAD PASTOR













REV. JENN GEIGER
YOUTH PASTOR

Pastor Jenn started serving at Lighthouse Church of the Nazarene in 2014. She was called into ministry when she was a teenager and has followed that call ever since. She loves investing in the lives of teens during these very formative years in their lives. She desires to see teens transform into the people God calls them to be as they grow in their relationship with Jesus. She also encourages them to live in such a way that others see Christ through them and take a chance on opportunites to share the love of Christ with others.


REV. KEITH & REV. JANE PHILBRICK
CHILDREN'S PASTORS

Pastor Keith and I (Pastor Jane) have been blessed to serve the Children of Dickson Lighthouse Church of the Nazarene for the past 2 years. We have been working with children in the church setting since 1997. We both feel God's call to show His love for children of all ages. We enjoy getting to know the children and teaching them God's Word on their level. We are so blessed by every minute we spend with the children at Dickson Lighthouse and in the Dickson Community.
