why do churches have

a time of music & singing?

From the beginning, music has been a way for people to connect with their Creator. At Gateway, we enter into God’s presence with open hearts & minds as we seek to experience Him in a meaningful, authentic way. We welcome you to listen and enjoy, or sing along as you feel comfortable.

how do i know my child is safe?

We understand that leaving your child with strangers can be unsettling. However, our Gateway Tots and Gateway Kids Teams are staffed with caring volunteers who have been background screened and reference checked. Parents are welcome to observe our programs and receive a tour of our beautiful children's facilities, accompanied by a trained staff member.

what makes

GATEWAY church  unique?

We believe that God has called us to be the church within the world. We cannot stay within a building and consider ourselves to be a full picture of the church. Our ministry and our church is designed to be a unique institution that exists within our community, for our community. Jesus painted a picture of the Kingdom of God that reached the alone, the outcast and the needy; we recognize that it is our responsibility to care for the world. Because we love God, we love the people around us.

what are gateway's

denominational connections?

Gateway Church is an interdenominational Bible church where we believe that the Bible is the only inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers. Regardless of denominational background, we welcome all who desire to know and serve Christ to be part of our growing church family. Our expression of this belief is first in our association with the Southern Baptist Convention, and in our membership in the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE). NAE represents more than 15 million evangelical, Bible-believing, born-again Christians in over 50,000 local churches, 70 denominations, and more than 100 church ministry organizations throughout America.
