Lighthouse Bible School is the training arm of Lighthouse Christian Church, Sonoma, California. The mission and vision of LBS is consistent with the mission and vision of the church. LBS therefore is intimately and directly affiliated with the local body at Lighthouse, Sonoma.
Lighthouse Christian Church, Sonoma is a sovereign General Council Church of the Assemblies of God, USA. Therefore, LBS will seek to matriculate their entire program so that upon completion of the Level Two Degree Program graduates will have met the academic requirements to apply for Licensed Minister status with Lighthouse Christian Church, Sonoma, California and/or The General Council of the Assemblies of God, USA.
Lighthouse Bible School will not seek formal accreditation status at this time. Accrediting organizations have been established to standardize and certify the educational programs of schools and colleges. The primary objective of these organizations is to ensure quality of education and maintenance of high academic standards. We believe the strict regulations in some areas of accreditation will greatly hinder our ability to fulfill the unique call and mission of LBS. Therefore, we desire to protect our liberty to make decisions that will afford the best possible Biblical and ministerial education as an extension of vision and mission of the local church. LBS will maintain a high level of dedication to the practices and disciplines that embody the high academic, spiritual and ethical standards of these organizations by maintaining a direct governance and accountability through the Executive Board of Lighthouse Christian Church.
