Lighthouse Christian Church of Oceanside



We are a Non-Denominational Christian Church – A Lighthouse to our Community


Sunday morning teachers, classes and growth groups welcome anyone interested in gathering to study God=s Word, uphold one another in prayer and enjoy fellowship together.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.  II Timothy 3:16-17

JOY Class
8:45 a.m. – Room 11
Teacher – Jerry Carey

Current Study – The Book of Jeremiah
The JOY Class is based on the practical application of God=s Word in our daily lives, primarily to reduce stress, strengthen our belief system, and make each of us more confident sharing our personal story about how we=ve been changed by Jesus & the Holy Spirit. Prayer plays an important role, as does sharing God events experienced during the week.  Enjoy fellowship, learning, and growing in the Lord with others.

Agape Class


The Book of Matthew

Teacher – Gil Maza

Current Study – GOSPEL: Meeting the Jesus You Think You Know

A minute by minute journey through all four gospels in the exact order and timeline the events in the life of Jesus actually happened. If you think you know the Life of Jesus, think again!


10:30 a.m. – Room 7
Teacher – Kelly Brown

 Current Study – The Book of II Samuel

King Saul is dead.  The already-anointed successor, David, hears the news and begins to consolidate his position as the new king of Israel. Thus, begins the book of 2 Samuel which tells the story of King David.  And what a story it is: the insurgency battles with the followers of Saul, David=s conquering of Jerusalem, the bringing of the Ark to Jerusalem, The Davidic Covenant, David and Bathsheba, David=s endless family troubles, David=s fleeing from Jerusalem, his last war with the Philistines, David=s last words, and the story of the purchase of what would later become the Temple Mount.

Romans – Christ & the Gospel of Salvation

10:30 a.m. – Church, Room 11
Teacher – Tim Dixon

While all Scripture is God inspired or God-breathed, there are some parts of the Bible that contain more doctrinal truth than others.  The Apostle Paul has much to say in Romans about the value of those doctrinal truths. Romans is a great exposition of the faith.  It is the complete and most logical presentation of Christian truth in the entire NT.  If there is one book that every Christian should understand, it is this letter. Why? Come join us this summer and find out.
