Gateway's mission is the same one Jesus gave to all of His disciples two thousand years ago: to make more disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). At Gateway we say it this way:
Helping people become trusting, loving, obedient servants.
We think this gives us a fairly accurate picture of what a follower of Jesus should look like. First of all, a follower of Jesus needs to believe for without faith it's impossible to even please God (Hebrews 11:6). So what's faith? Most simply put, it's TRUST. Second, a follower of Jesus needs to LOVE. In fact, Jesus said to love God and to love others were the two greatest commandments (Matthew 22:34-40). Third, a follower of Jesus doesn't just obey...he wants to OBEY. In fact, God's own Spirit indwells the believer giving him/her both the desire and the power to obey (Philippians 2:13). Finally, the follower of Jesus is called to follow Jesus' example and SERVE.
