Pastor Haywood Henderson, Jr.


Greetings to the Saints and the faithful sisters and brothers from the Gospel Lighthouse Church Family. We are yet thanking God for taking us over into the new year of 2009. Today, we are nearer to the return of Jesus Christ according to the word of God. We must watch and pray for we know not the hour our Lord will return. The enemy will try to do everything to keep you from praying, reading the word, and attending church. I beseech you to press your way because we are going to need all our strength to continue defeating the tactics and schematics of the adversary daily. It's going to take some godly determination. Remember David's mighty men of valor. Eleazor was one of David's peculiar mighty men who stood alone and fought the whole Philistine army. If you have to stand alone this year for the sake of the gospel, remember how David defeated the giant Goliath alone and how David's group of mighty men who fought battles alone in the power of God defeating the enemy. This year, we are looking for the manifestations of His glory through his people. Somebody said that this year, God will bless you double for your trouble. Be strong, keep the faith, and expect great things. Grace to you and peace.
Elder Haywood & Bettye Henderson, Jr.


Gospel LightHouse COGIC is a church on the move.  It is a spirit-led, spirit-fed powerhouse where the word of God is foremost having a free course and the liberating spirit of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2) saturates all who enter therein.  The light from this grand church reaches out throughout the entire East Texas areas, Kennard, Lufkin, Nacogdoches, Livingston, etc. as they are a traveling church staying on-the-go for God.  Gospel LightHouse (GLH) is under the leadership of Rev. Haywood Henderson, Jr., former college basketball star nicknamed Hollywood Henderson, and the eldest daughter of two of Texas' most outstanding pioneers of faith, Supt. Noble L. Cooper, Sr. and Dorphine Byrd-Cooper, Missionary Betty Henderson.  The church has grown marvelously under their leadership.  They continue to uphold the holy and sacred standards, doctrines, and holy traditions of the Churches of God in Christ, known as the largest Black Pentecostal organization in the entire universe.  The Church of God in Christ's founder is the Late Bishop C.H. Mason.

This is Supt. Noble L. Cooper, Sr., father, crusader, musician, prophet, evangelist, teacher, and pastor are some of the many hats he has had to wear by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. What a revivalist! And church builder! And with his guitar and gospel singing, he turned a group of teenagers around who were on the dance floor for the devil. Today, those teenagers are preachers, missionaries, pastors and evangelists.

Internal Light

Luke 11:33-36 says: No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a hidden place or under a basket, but on a lamp-stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is diseased, your body is full of darkness. Therefore see to it that the light in you is not darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, with no part in the dark, it will be as full of light as when the light of a lamp shines on you.
