“A Lighted Cross Project”
A mission of Providence Baptist Church
Lightedcross.org was started in 2012 after the ACLU forced the small town of Bentonia, Mississippi to take down two 10′ X 20′ lighted crosses from their water tower. The town spent the next year raising funds to place two new, brighter crosses on a private communications tower thirty feet higher in the air than the original crosses. Now the new crosses seem suspended in mid-air at night and are a great inspiration to the citizens of Bentonia and everyone who passes the town during the night. The lighted crosses also remind us that we can fight back against the ACLU or anyone else attempting to tear down our Christian heritage one cross at a time.
The cross is a reminder of what Christ did for all mankind in humble obedience to God the Father. By placing lighted crosses along our nation’s highways it is our prayer that they will provide a witness to those who do not yet know Christ and a blessing to those who do. To that end, the Lighted Cross’s mission is to place lighted Christian crosses on private property along highways wherever God leads. Lighted crosses are now on Highway 49 at Bentonia, Little Yazoo and Yazoo City, Mississippi.
