Please stop by the information center in the main foyer where we will be happy to assist you. Gateway is a church designed to encourage spiritual growth in a safe and healthy environment. We value our visitors and welcome you as an honored guest.

Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible to be the Word of God and we hold to the doctrines of the Trinity; salvation by trusting in Jesus Christ; repentance from sin; and that Christians are to live lives separate from conformities to this world.

 News & Events 

Tabernacle Experience Cancelled
After much thought, deliberation, and prayer, a decision has been made to cancel the Tabernacle Experience due to logistical complications caused by Hurricane Florence. The uncertainty of the storm’s path created planning and operational issues that had to be decided last week prior to the storm passing through our area.

We thank countless volunteers and so many who had planned to attend. Our purpose in the Tabernacle Experience was to point people to Jesus and His salvation, and we pray we can continue to do that without this exhibit.
