Lighthouse Ministry International started in 1977 out of a need to free a four-year old child from demonic torment. At that time little was available for lay Christians to read and learn how to be free from demonic oppression. It was a subject that was not openly discussed in most churches. No one would dare say that a Christian could be influenced or controlled by an evil spirit. If it was obvious that a Christian was experiencing demonic attack, then it was equally difficult to find a sound, Bible-based ministry that could help the troubled believer.
Two Elders from a Christian & Missionary Alliance church in St. Paul, Minnesota decided to meet for prayer every morning. The Lord began to move and many people were healed and set free from demonic bondage. These grateful believers would tell others what the Lord Jesus had done for them, and by 1989 these Elders were meeting weekly to minister freedom from spiritual oppression to many believers from all walks of life and denominations.
Some of the men and women, who God had set free, joined the team. In 1995, Lighthouse Ministry International was organized as a non-profit ministry. Today, not only does this ministry continue to meet with Christians regularly for personal ministry, but it has become an equipping ministry to the Church for spiritual warfare. Christians who receive deliverance are encouraged to participate in a Bible study entitled “Victorious Spiritual Warfare”. Lighthouse has now traveled around the world teaching conferences on “Equipping the Local Church in Spiritual Warfare”, ministering personal liberty and equipping teams to minister.
God has richly blessed believers through His Word and set many thousands of His people free. Now these men and women understand the principles of spiritual warfare. They know how to walk in their authority in Christ, how to resist the devil and stand firm against his schemes so that they can stay free. Christians who have been set free and equipped are able to set others free so they can work more productively in the Kingdom of God.
We continue to fulfill Christ’s commission as we receive our freedom in Him.
Jesus said: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor, He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are downtrodden, and to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”
— Luke 4:18-19
