What To Expect

We understand that visiting a new place can be intimidating. At Gateway, we promise a warm welcome from people the moment you enter the building. 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. 

our statement of faith

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost

Matthew 28:19
