WE ARE A CONTEMPORARY CHURCH, SEEKING TO WORSHIP AND APPLY THE THE THINGS WE LEARN IN A RELEVANT, 21ST CENTURY CONTEXT. WE ARE AN INCLUSIVE CHURCH THAT WELCOMES PEOPLE “JUST AS THEY ARE”, KNOWING THAT GOD WORKS IN ALL OF OUR LIVES IN DIFFERENT WAYS. ABOVE ALL, WE SEEK TO BE A BIBLICAL CHURCH AND A SPIRIT-LED CHURCH – SEEKING GOD IN SCRIPTURE AND IN PRAYER TO DISCOVER HIS PLAN FOR US AS A COMMUNITY.
+ A CHURCH DESIGNED FOR THE 21st CENTURY
Together we’re striving to become the kind of community described in the Bible – a church with relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, prayer, honest friendships and compassionate care for those in need. In short, we’d like to have the kind of church that is filled with real grace and real people who LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, & LOVE LIFE!
So whether you are a spiritual seeker who’s just starting to ask questions about God or a committed Christian who wants to sink the roots of your faith even deeper, you can find a home here at Gateway. This is an exciting place to be — come and give it a try!
+ OUR CORE BELIEFS
Along with Christians throughout the last 2,000 years, in all nations, and in all denominations, we affirm the following statement of faith, known as The Apostles Creed:
WE BELIEVE IN GOD, THE FATHER ALMIGHTY, THE MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, AND IN JESUS CHRIST, HIS ONLY SON, OUR LORD;
WHO WAS CONCEIVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, BORN OF THE VIRGIN MARY, SUFFERED UNDER PONTIUS PILATE, WAS CRUCIFIED, DEAD, AND BURIED;
HE DESCENDED INTO HADES. ON THE THIRD DAY HE AROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD;
HE ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN, AND SITS ON THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER ALMIGHTY;
FROM WHERE HE SHALL COME TO JUDGE THE LIVING AND THE DEAD.
WE BELIEVE IN THE HOLY SPIRIT;
THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH;THE COMMUNION OF SAINTS;
THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS;
THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODY;
AND THE LIFE EVERLASTING.
+ OUR VISION
TO REACH AND INFLUENCE AN EVER-INCREASING NUMBER OF PEOPLE, BY BUILDING A LARGE, BIBLE-BASED, SPIRIT-FILLED, CONTEMPORARY-STYLE CHURCH, CHANGING MINDSETS AND EMPOWERING PEOPLE TO CONNECT WITH GOD, GROW IN FAITH, AND SERVE THE WORLD.
