You can also discuss one-on-one with anyone who comes to the Lighthouse about Jesus and His gift of salvation. If you’re up to the challenge, you could even give a devotional and the gospel during our morning program. Christiansted is also full of people all around who need to hear about Jesus.

Do You Know Him?
The most important thing one can know about God is that "He is!" He is eager for each of us to know Him personally and be possessors of eternal life.
"But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6
