In 1996, he became a certified member of the domestic violence program, through Anderson and Anderson. In the last several years, Pastor Richard has been teaching "anger management" principles. These principles are based totally on the Word of God "to develop strong families and strong character."

The mantra for "The Lighthouse Fellowship" is "Believing the Best about You, Praying the Best for You." This is based on their ministry text found in First Corinthians Chapter 13, "The Love Chapter of the Bible." Love believes the best in every situation, and about every individual. This leaves plenty of room for forgiveness and the Bible-kind of love. The mantra is a positive, faith approach proclaiming the best about God and the best about others. This includes changing relationships through harmony and unity based on First Corinthians Chapter 13.
The Biddle's believe in a strong foundation upon which they seek to build strong Christian families, which will result in developing a strong Christian society. They are convinced that the more you include God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, the better families you have, and a stronger social structure will result. This includes raising children the Christian way, based solely on the Word of God. "There is a way that seems right unto man, but the end thereof is the way of death." Man’s way is the opposite of God's way. To be successful is to live God's way and deny your own.
