In the summer of 1995, Pastor Richard Austin and his family came to Baldwin City, Kansas with the hope of starting a new church. They had heard of a little brick church building on the corner of Sixth and Baker that was sitting empty, and after getting permission to hold services there, Lighthouse Baptist Church was started. The first service was held on July 2, 1995. There were fourteen people who attended that service and we were all rejoicing!
In October of 2013, the Lord allowed us to purchase an old elementry school building with tons of space and potential. For the last several years we have been busy making it our home. It has been wonderful watching the Lord lead and bless in this project. God is so good!
