To love and honour God by serving the seafarers of the world in word and deed.
Victoria Lighthouse Ministry to Seafarers has been operating as a
Christian charitable society for the past seven years.
WHAT WE DO
Today, every seafarer crew who comes to the Victoria Lighthouse Crew Centre has a phone or device in hand giving them the ability to communicate with their family and friends in many different ways: calls, texts, emails, video chats and more. (Did you know that seafarers do not always have access to the Internet while they are at sea?)
Our culture has never been more connected and yet, loneliness remains one of the top challenges for most people and especially seafarers. The key to alleviating loneliness is relationships—with God and each other. The Victoria Lighthouse Ministry is able to help the Crew keep connected to their family and friends around the world as well as sharing the love of Christ with them.
The Ministry is called upon to provide practical assistance to seafarers and we consider our response to be a very important aspect of serving the Lord.
We provide free Wifi access, allowing communication with family and friends.
We provide free refreshments and a place to relax during their time off from their ship duties.
We offer, with compassion and friendship, a listening ear, prayer support, Christian literature and transportation to shopping or touring Victoria, as we are able.
We are pleased to have this website to communicate our mission to the community of Victoria and our faithful supporters. In addition, the website serves as a ‘beacon of light’ to all seafarers as they travel the globe.
Thank you for visiting our website! We encourage you to come visit our crew tent and consider how you can help minister to seafarers.
THE VICTORIA LIGHTHOUSE MIINISTRY STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and the only final authority in faith and life.
We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, are sinners in thought, word and deed, and that all who, repent of their sin, acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and believe that they are justified on the merit of His shed blood alone, are saved to eternal life.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary and that He died for our sins on Calvary according to the scriptures as a one-time, substitutionary sacrifice for all; that He was buried and rose again the third day; that He ascended into Heaven to the right of God, and that He now lives there for us as our Great High Priest and only Advocate and that He will come again.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting, conscious punishment of the lost.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, who is of one substance, equal in power and co-existent with the Father and the Son. His ministry is to convict men, regenerate the believing sinners, and to indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believers for Godly living and service.
We believe that the church is one body, consisting of those regenerated by the Spirit of God and of which Christ is the Head, expressing itself in worship, fellowship, evangelism and service.
