Lamplighter Ministries

Building Christlike character one story at a time.

Welcome to Lamplighter Ministries!

Welcome to Lamplighter, where we are making ready a people prepared for the LORD! The words “ready” and “prepared” are the heartbeat of our mission. These words in Greek represent inner character development and external career excellence.

We’d like to introduce to you our collection of rare books and audio dramas along with a colorful cast of characters who live out a biblical worldview centered around four truths:

    1. God is good.
    2. God works all things together for good.
    3. God keeps His promises.
    4. God allows suffering to grow our character so we can experience His love.

Steeped in these biblical themes, each Lamplighter book and audio drama demonstrates how “suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, character produces hope, and hope never disappoints, because God’s love is gushed out into our lives” (Romans 5:3-5). 

As you engage in these life-transforming stories, you’ll experience the Word of God as it was intended, for it is alive and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword! In a day and age when Hollywood and social media have captured the hearts and minds of our children, it is our goal that each reader and listener be inspired to know God intimately, proclaim Him passionately, and enjoy Him infinitely!

Never been to our Lamplighter campus? Please join us for a tour and experience our great God of wonders and the work that He is accomplishing here at Lamplighter Ministries. Our hearts’ desire is that you will see Jesus! 

God bless,

Biblical Position

Lamplighter Ministries believes without any doubt all things contained in Scripture to be true and a living letter to God’s children.

The Bible, the true story of God’s great deeds, has been written down so that we may believe Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and so believing, have life in His name (John 20:31). The Holy Scriptures have been given to us historically so that we might come to know the covenanting God and His way of doing things in creation and so that we might be able to obey Him more maturely, as adopted sons and daughters who had lost their way in the world. More specifically, we hold to the following truths:

We believe that the Scriptures are the inspired and infallible revelation of God to man.

This is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

We believe in one God who is revealed to us in the mysterious union of the Trinity.

We believe that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are one God yet distinct in function and revelation.

We believe that salvation is a free gift.

Given by a divine act at the moment of genuine repentance and faith in the sacrificial death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

“The myLamplighter Club has done wonders to satisfy my daughter’s insatiable appetite for reading. What a peace it gives me to know that she is reading great literature that will deepen her love for the Savior and impart character lessons she’ll never forget.”
