Gateway Life is different in that we strive for relationship with God, and not just a religious experience once a week. Some of our major points of belief are:

The New Birth

Man’s first step toward salvation is godly sorrow that works toward repentance. The new birth is necessary to all mankind and when experienced produces eternal life. 2 Corinthians 7:10; John 3:3-5; 1 John 5:12

Water Baptism

Baptism in water by immersion is a direct commandment of our Lord and is for believers only. Mark 16:16; Acts 2:37-47

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power for Godly living and service. This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utterance. Acts 1:8; Acts 2:4; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 19:17

The Bible is the Word of God

The Bible is the inspired Word of God. We believe the Bible in its entirety. We believe the Bible is our final authority. 2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13

The Godhead as the Trinity

Our God is one but manifested in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, all being equal. Philippians 2:6

Church Relationship

We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves and become fruitful to the viable church of Christ. Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25

Tithes and Offerings

We believe tithing is our covenant right as a believer. It’s not something we have to do, it’s something we get to do. We believe that the method of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithe and freewill offerings. Genesis 14:18-22; Malachi 3:10; 2
