About Us

Lake Calhoun – Minneapolis

The Summit Lighthouse of Minneapolis/Saint Paul is a unique non-denominational religious and philosophical organization, and an affiliate teaching center of The Summit Lighthouse®.  We are also known as The Minneapolis/Saint Paul Community Teaching Center.

The Summit Lighthouse® is a forum for the Ascended Masters and their students throughout the world. With international headquarters in Gardiner, Montana, and study groups and teaching centers throughout the world, the Ascended Masters and their students  disseminate the ancient wisdom of the Ascended Masters to every nation.

From its inception in 1958, The Summit Lighthouse has remained dedicated first to the development of the unlimited spiritual potential of man, and second, to the bringing forth of such progressive revelation as will assist the individual to unfold his character, his ideals, and his understanding of cosmic law.

Our purpose is to provide a teaching environment that allows seekers from all walks of life to study the Teachings of the Ascended Masters® at their own pace and with the goal of realizing the Christ within themselves and others.

We believe:

1 – We are all Sons and Daughters of God, with a spirit spark of God within us.  “You are all sons of the most high.” – Bible Psalm 82:7

2 – The ultimate goal of life is union with God our Father/Mother through the Ritual of the Ascension. Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Krishna and others were ‘wayshowers,’ demonstrating how to live our lives to find our way back home to God. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” – John 14:12

3 – Each life that we live is for the goal of perfecting ourselves, ridding ourselves of negative thoughts, feelings and habits, so that we achieve union with God.  “Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.” – Buddha

4 – It is our karma that delays our spiritual union with God. Life, therefore, is a journey back to the heart of God. “Even if you are considered to be the most sinful of all sinners, when you are situated in the boat of transcendental knowledge you will be able to cross over the ocean of miseries.” Bhagavad-Gita

The Summit Lighthouse of Minneapolis/Saint Paul is also affiliated with Church Universal and Triumphant®, a religious organization for those who choose to accelerate their spiritual path even further. (Activities at our teaching center do not require church membership.)
