Gateway Bible Church
Gateway Bible Church officially launched in September of 2011 with about thirty regular attendees. Praise God during that time we have seen a steady growth in both breadth and depth and now average about 110 people each Sunday Morning. This group, however, is not just a gathering of people, they are a loving community of believers who are “actively committed to knowing, applying and proclaiming the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
God has blessed Gateway with a passion for many things, in particular, our partnerships in missions around the World. Since our birth, God has orchestrated two primary relationships in the countries of Bolivia and Ukraine. So far, we have sent teams to Santa Cruz, Bolivia to serve the churches alongside Matias Mojica. Our primary ministry in Bolivia is to train Pastors in developing their gift of preaching and incorporating the principles of the Charles Simeon Trust. We have done similar ministry with the churches in Rivne, Ukraine, serving with Roman Kurblatsky. Both of these endeavors are a true blessing to be involved in and our people have been gracious to participate in teams as well as support those efforts financially.
As we prayed and considered what our priorities were we settled on the following commitments:
- We are Committed to the Glory of God
- We are Committed to the Cross of Christ
- We are Committed to the Word of God
- We are Committed to Expository Preaching/Teaching
- We are Committed to Pursuing Humility
- We are Committed to Growth in Christ
- We are Committed to the Local Church
- We are Committed to pursuing a Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
- We are Committed to the Great Commission
- We are Committed to investing in the Next Generation
Of course, in no way are we attempting to be exhaustive. Therefore it is helpful to identify with some further clarifying documents that will help communicate our seriousness about the Gospel, the preaching of His Word and our desire to be faithful to glorify God in all we do. To that end I want to introduce you to the Affirmations and Denials of Together for the Gospel and the clarifying statements of the 9-Marks:
