Pastor and Mrs. B.W. Spencer

Dear Friends of Lighthouse Baptist Church (LBC),

I would like to take a moment to once again welcome you to our web site. We consider it a great honor that you have chosen to visit us.

Allow me to introduce myself and our church. I am Pastor Bart W. Spencer pastor of LBC. I was born December 22, 1961 and born again in November 1984. I hail from Bethany, IL and am married to the former Suzan Davis, also of Bethany. My dear wife and I were wed May 29, 1982 and now have eight children, Ryan and his wife Ana, Luke and his wife Pong, Becky and her husband Dan, Hannah and her husband Doug; and sixteen grandchildren, Carter, Lillian, Titus, Isabella, Cleton, Ava, Abigail, Weston, Hudson, Haven, Scarlett, Zacharias, Remmington, Octavia, Gideon, and Oliver.

Nine years of our life together were spent in the United States Air Force during which time I was saved (via reading the gospel tract God’s Simple Plan of Salvation), called to preach, and my wife was born again. I attended Mountain States Baptist College ( ) graduating in May 1995.

Our Lord moved our family to Holland, MI in 1997 to begin the Landmark Baptist Church. At our 6th Anniversary weekend, in August 2003, we changed the name and chartered Lighthouse Baptist Church. We are unashamedly Baptist and hold that the King James Version of the Bible to be the preserved Word of God for English speaking people and it is the only version used in our ministry.

We are conservative (singing from the hymn book) yet spirited in our music employing traditional style accompaniment. The salvation of the lost is the focus of our ministry with the teaching and training of the saved an inseparable part of our mission.

Please take time to drop us a note and say ‘hello.’ We would love to have you visit us soon.

His Servant and Yours,

Pastor Spencer
