Our Team


Golden Land Baptist Missions (GLBM) is the ministry and missionary arm of the Lighthouse Baptist Church of Horseheads, New York USA, an independent assembly believing, practicing, preaching, and standing upon the fundamentals of the faith as “once delivered unto the saints.”  Both GLBM and LBC have as their goal to reach souls in their own “Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8) and especially the  Buddhist world with the Gospel of Christ. Lighthouse Baptist Church believes that, according to the Scriptures, the local church is to be the channel of world evangelism.  Therefore, GLBM is operated with offices at and by its home church base and works under the authority of that church and its Pastor.
