Gateway Family Church Exists:
To Encounter God’s Presence
“You make known to me the path of life. In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” ~ Psalm 16:11
We live to encounter God’s presence in our daily lives and our corporate gatherings. In His presence, we find salvation, healing, deliverance, and all that we could ever need. This is why Worship and Prayer are of such importance in each of our services.
To Express God’s Love
“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are My disciples.” ~ John 13:35
Because God’s love for us is so great, we in turn show His love for others through the way we live our lives. We express His love just as Jesus did: through kindness, through healing, through mercy, & through grace, using our gifts and talents to declare the goodness of God.
To Equip God’s People
“…to equip God’s people for works of ministry, so that the Body of Christ may be built up until we all…become mature…like Christ.” ~ Eph. 4:12-13
We exist to ensure that God’s people reach their full potential in this life and in the next. We equip ourselves to reach this destiny by embracing the basic and deeper truths found in God’s Word. Through discipleship, we are given the tools we need to become mature followers of Christ who make a eternal impact on the world around us.
To Expand God’s Kingdom
“Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone…And these miraculous signs will follow those who believe: in My name they will…cast out demons…and heal the sick.” ~ Mark 16:15-18
We believe every follower of Christ is a supernatural minister called to demonstrate God’s salvation. Through the demonstration of God’s love, God’s grace, and God’s power, we take His truth into every culture and socioeconomic sphere. We believe the message of the cross has the power to transform hearts, cities, and even nations.
