Becoming a Follower of Jesus

We are humbled at the privilege to be a part of and help fulfill the process of life transformation for our church family. The heart of Gateway is to assist in your spiritual growth, and below are several ways we hope you will join us on your journey.

Baptism

The ultimate display of your commitment to follow Christ. Water baptism is a whole family celebration of your decision to surrender to the Lord. Just as we devote ourselves to one another through marriage vows, water baptism is an open declaration of your choice to follow and dedicate your life to Jesus Christ.

Prayer

Prayer is not just something we do – it is what defines us as Christ followers. Prayer establishes a personal relationship with God and creates one-on-one direct communication with our Creator. As our most intimate form of connection with God, prayer is transformative and life-changing.

Worship

As one of the core foundations of Gateway Church, we believe that worship is fundamental to hearing God’s voice in our hearts. We also believe the Bible says that we, as a church, are called into a royal priesthood in order to minister to God and to our people. Through worship, we seek to cultivate this calling by transforming and anointing your time of worship into an experience of spiritual surrender in the presence of God. Our desire is to shepherd you into intimate relationship with Him through praise, and to guide you into learning, growing and seeing more of God as you lay down concerns, worries and heavy yokes at His feet. God is worthy of our highest and our best, and we use our songs and music to connect with Him through this extravagant and passionate expression.

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7

Pastoral Care

Find the emotional and spiritual support that you need in order to live a life more fully in Christ. We’ll help you identify and remove those things that are currently hindering your spiritual growth, enter into the life you were made for, discover your identity in Christ and learn how to be an influence in the lives of others.

As we intentionally seek to walk alongside you on your journey, we offer access to resources and guidance through premarital and marriage counseling, family ministries, and Gateway’s Freedom Ministry, created to fulfill Jesus’ mission as described in Luke 4:18-19. Our mission is to see individuals, marriages, and families saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped and empowered for ministry.
