Fantastic Church – Our family attended this church for nearly ten years before the Lord moved us elsewhere. Amazing Pastor, great preaching directly from the Bible, and wonderful Church Family. You'll feel right at home, and grow more than you ever have before. The staff at Lighthouse are real, and transparent men of God. Great music, dynamic preaching and fantastic fellowship with people who actually care.
One of, if not the best! – Awesome, a must attend. Out standing preacher and great congergation. Sincere, genuine, and kind Christians who love the Lord! The perfect place to grow in the Lord. Many great Sunday school classes for all ages, an incrediable bible institution, and a fantastic academy! Could not be more blessed with a church, more than this one. Love it, it's the place to be, learn, grow, and call home!
OUR HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE AT 'LIGHTHOUSE BAPTIST CHURCH' – My review has been deleted here before several times and I keep taking out alot of truth to see if it can remain unmarked, yet I am making an objective review that will help others avoid what befell us at this 'church"
My whole family attended this 'church' from 2004 to 2009 and I stayed till 2010. The 'men of God' that run this place took over $150,000 dollars in Tithes and offerings from us over the course of all those years and they slowly indoctrinated our family into believing that they are the only ones that have the truth and the only ones that are saved! The men that run this place are all full of immorality and there have been many scandals regarding these ministers sleeping around with women not their wives that have been systematically covered up and if you talk about it they throw you out of the church, while they legislate an extreme unnatural form of morality on their church members!
Look up the civil and criminal records on this place!! My son attended their bible institute for 4 years and they refused to give him a bible diploma -even though my son already had a formal College degree from an accredited institution- My son was thrown out of this cult when he called out two men that were teaching doctrines completely contrary to the bible and having affairs with other women...a Julio Garcia and a Doug Brandenberg...they immediately threw him out after 5 years of blindly serving these criminals without any hearing whatsoever, even though it is mandated under their articles of incorporation that a hearing is given to members of this church...but the men that run this place have no honor or integrity. My son was heartbroken, confused and terrified because they brainwashed him into believing that they were the 'bride of christ' and the only ones with the truth!! Then they sent my son to a satellite church ran by them called 'bible believers baptist church' in El Cajon ran by Joshua Stephenson -who is on the payroll of LBC- and they brainwashed us into selling our home and family business to produce an online bible institute, a Spanish reference bible and to translate 120 of Peter Ruckman's publications in Spanish and for my son to move to Florida to do this...Little did we know the whole thing was a fraud set up from day one to defraud us out of our life savings and our home!! i fell ill with an advanced stage III breast cancer during this time and none of these con men that call themselves men of God ever visited me -even though I served and tithed to these men for so many years as well as my family.
These 'men of God' defrauded us over $250,000 dollars via a financial fraud that cost us our home and life savings plus another $150,000 that we have given as tithes working for these 'men of God' serving them hand and foot an average of 30 hours a week in one form or another without any pay!
Many of my son's friends were deported and thrown out of the church after they complained about what they did to my son and thrown out of the church (Fernando Hernandez, Mario Salazar and others]. Anything you tell them in confidence they will use against you to destroy your life!! These 'men of God' are so far away from Loving God that we wonder if they are Jesuit priests in disguise or Satanists disguised as ministers of righteousness!!
There are countless scandals that their lawyer David Gibbs Jr of the Christian Law Association has a very long track record of defending criminals and pedophiles in the fundamental baptist movement...they threw my son out of the church the day he called the CLA to ask them about the improper and immoral behavior happening at LBC.
Please visit my son's youtube page 'reinavalera1865' We are going to press civil and criminal charges against these 'men of God' that destroyed our lives and have refused to make restitution after all these years!!
Great services – Really enjoyed the Easter play and performance, and the message was solid. Great heartfelt church and enjoyed the diversity of this large church. Great time and will be returning.
Wonderful Church! – This is a wonderful church I have attended for a while now. They are doing much for the Lord. The orchestra, chior, ministries, and services are fantastic. The people are friendly, so is the staff. No church is ever perfect, but the spirit and Spirit is great. Superb classes for children. We all need to be in a church, and this church is worth checking out. Solid biblical teaching.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS IFB CULT, THEY WILL DESTROY YOUR LIVES!! – We were very active members of this 'Church' from 2004 to 2009 and this has to be one of the worst IFB -Independent Funnymental Baptist- Cults in the country. The frontmen for this criminal organization 'Doug Fisher and Gill Torres' are some of the most evil, corrupt and vicious leaders in the IFB movement!! They will indoctrinate you into believing that only they have the 'truth' that you have to be baptized in their church to be saved, they will brainwash you into giving them 20-40% of your income and will demand that you 'serve' them 30+ hours a week, they will use fear, intimidation and extreme indoctrination to keep you there, force you to home school your children there, to only take jobs that they approve of, to trust the 'man of God' -the crook in the pulpit- as if he were God himself...Anything you tell them in private they will use against you to character assasinate you if you ever question them ...They will use this Criminal named David Gibbs of the Christian Law Association to sue you or to protect them...There is no pastor-parishioner or attorney-client privilege...They defrauded us out of our home and life savings in a con job to print a Spanish Reference bible, produce an online Spanish Bible Institute and translate 120 bible publications in Spanish...With Feigned Words they make Merchandise out of People...they devour widows houses and for pretense make long prayer!! They have extreme security to protect the 'man of God' because of all the lives and families they have destroyed!!
These criminals threw us out of their church when we questioned one of the deacons having multiple sexual affairs and teaching damnable heresies (Julio Garcia and Doug Brandenberg), beware of their crooked lawyer David Gibbs attorney from 'Christian Law Association' who collects money from Christians only to cover up all their crooked doings and defends Pedophile Pastors or Pastors that Commit Financial Fraud against members of the Church.
I spent 4 years at their bible institute and they denied me a diploma just out of spite even though they are non accredited anyway...we haven't recovered a dime, we gave over $100,000 Dollars to that church in the 5 years we were there, they do not report alot of the money you give, they just steal it and put it in their pocket...all their leadership walk around with their nose pointed at the ceiling...My mother got cancer and they never even called once and my mother tried to make an appointment with the pastors Gill Torres and Doug Fisher for over a year and both of these white washed sepulchers ignored her requests for over a year!! too busy stealing from the flock and traveling to 'preach' at other pulpits and they are Jeremiah 23 and Matthew 23 Hirelings whose damnation lingereth not!!!
We have open criminal charges against them for financial fraud and will be filing a civil lawsuit to try to recover some damages for the financial fraud they committed against us...Also stay clear away from Joshua Stephenson who has a 'bible believers baptist church' in el cajon in a small strip mall...he is one of them and on their payroll and he will wreck your life if you give him half a chance!
We are King James but you are better off anywhere else than at this place!!! We brought about 50 people to this church that stayed there and they turned them against us with lies and false accusations!
