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

Since September of 1971, Gateway has seen literally thousands of children and their families come to Sunday school and church! Some of our own church and school staff came to us as a result of being saved through the bus ministry.

Academy
 
Gateway Christian Academy is a private Christian school which is interested in educating the whole person.  We feel that it is vitally important to train young people spiritually, academically, socially and physically. Gateway stands hand-in-hand with Christian parents in fulfilling their biblical mandate to “train up a child in the way he/she must go.”
