About Us

We are a church that cares about you, our community, and most of all your relationship with Jesus.  From our energetic church services to our educational ministries, we endeavor to connect you to Jesus Christ.

As a traditional Pentecostal church, we are proudly affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church International.  Our worship and sermons focus on the unfailing Apostolic doctrine, delivered in traditional and contemporary means.

Our pastor, James McPhaill, has led the Pentecostal Lighthouse since 1980.  After obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from California State University, Fresno, he attended Apostolic Bible Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota where he met his bride-to-be, Carol.  After graduation, they married and now have two adult children (one boy and one girl) and three grandchildren (one boy and two girls).  During his ministry, Rev. McPhaill has been an evangelist, youth pastor, assistant pastor and pastor.  Under their leadership for the past 32 years, the Pentecostal Lighthouse has experienced exceptional growth and made several inroads into the community providing specialized ministry.

If you are looking for a dynamic church that cares and you want a deeper relationship with God, the Pentecostal Lighthouse is the place!  We hope to see you soon!
