Gateways Mission Statement
Our great co-mission is to be a community of faith that equips people to:
· CONNECT with each other and Christ
· GROW in faith and make disciples
· SERVE Him and one another in love
We uphold the following 8 values that demonstrate who and whose we are:
Faith Honour Authenticity
Prayer Accountability Stewardship
We believe the BIBLE is the inspired Word of God, written by human authors under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is infallible and the divine authority for the Christian life.
We believe in ONE GOD, who eternally exists as three person: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Trinity created all things and is completely perfect.
We believe that JESUS CHRIST is fully God and man. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. He died on the cross as the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the entire world, and rose to life three days later. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father.
We believe that the HOLY SPIRIT is alive and active to this day. That He is sent to indwell, guide, lead and empower those who believe so that they may live Godly lives.
We believe that all people are created in the image of God, but relationship with Him is broken by curse of SIN. The only means of SALVATION is through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.
We believe that all people will live for ETERNITY and that each person has the freewill to decide the destination of their eternal lives: heaven or hell.
