Ignite at Lancaster Baptist Church exists to help teens know and embrace truth in a culture full of confusion and lies. Each week, hundreds of teens come together to deepen their faith, meet new friends, and create lasting memories. Our youth staff and volunteers are committed to helping you navigate your teen years with biblical courage and wisdom. Regardless of where you may be on your personal journey of faith, we invite you to experience Jesus Christ on a personal level and see for yourself the difference He will make in your life.

What We Believe

There are big questions that haunt all of us. What happens when I die? Where will I spend eternity? The single most important question that you will ever answer is this - “If I were to die today, would I spend eternity in Heaven with God?” Your relationship to Jesus Christ is central to the answer to that question.

The Bible tells us in 1 John 5:13, “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life...” The simple truth is Jesus loves you, and He wants you to know that you’re going to Heaven.

What We Do

We believe that church should be enjoyed, not endured. Every week, you’ll be able to participate in our weekly Bible study where you’ll be able to connect with friends, learn practical truths that will help you navigate life, and have a great time while you’re doing it. But it doesn’t stop there—crazy activities, summer camps, epic conferences, and foreign missions trips are just a few ways you can connect and grow throughout the year.

Trust us, you won’t want to miss out on this.

Wednesday Night Bible Study 7:00

Join your friends and ministry leaders for a one-hour study of practical truths from the Bible about how to become the man or woman God wants you to be.

Junior High

7th-8th Grade

The junior high years can be confusing, difficult, and challenging! But they can also be awesome! Through Sunday classes, weekly outreach, monthly activities, annual trips, retreats, and programs, the teens at LBC are challenged and equipped to live for Christ while they are in their youth. Each year, the teens can look forward to camps, trips, outreach events, fun activities, and many opportunities to grow in God’s Word. We do everything within our power to provide the Bible-based wisdom that teens need, combined with the friendly atmosphere that teens enjoy!

Senior High

9th-12th Grade

Real Answers

In a world of lies – what’s really true? From the Bible, you can get answers for every question and problem in life, and you can find out that God really is on your side! He wants to help you every day and wants you to know Him personally.

You will learn

  • What is my purpose in life?
  • Is some entertainment harmful?
  • What is a family?
  • Can a marriage really be happy?
  • What is true maturity?
  • How can I develop character?
  • Is the Bible really God’s Word?
  • Is Jesus really God’s Son?
  • What happens after death?
  • What is real love?
  • Why was I created?

Real Fun

Some people think Christians can’t have fun! The fact is, we have more fun than anyone else!! The difference is, this is the kind of fun that won’t get you drunk, high, pregnant, infected, or arrested. It’s the kind of fun you can have with a clear conscience – the kind that creates good memories, hilarious moments, and awesome friendships.

  • Retreats
  • Summer Camps
  • Beach Blast
  • Dodgers Games
  • Theme Park Days
  • Ice Skating

Real Friends

Everyone wants good friends – the kind of friends who will be there for you when you really need them. Student Ministries is made up of about 500 teens from every high school and middle school in the valley. The common bond is that we all want to know God personally and live out His purposes in our lives. If you’re tired of pretending to be someone so that other people will accept you… quit playing the game. Quit risking your future for someone else’s approval. You will find real friendships and support at the Lancaster Baptist Student Ministries.
