Who We Are

Gateway Baptist Church is a relatively young church for Lake City.  Organized in March of 1999, Gateway has become a church family large enough to provide the kinds of quality ministries that are so needed by those in our community seeking a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  Those who are striving to grow in the Lord will discover many opportunities to journey into that next step of their relationship with Christ and to exercise their souls for His glory. 

Our church is multi-generational and enjoys a dynamic mix of new, growing and mature followers of Christ.  Gateway services include Sunday morning worship, Sunday evening worship, and Wednesday evening fellowship meals, discipleship studies and prayer gatherings.  A strong feature of our church is her youth and children’s ministries!  Blessed with ample property and facilities (14 acres of land and over 14,000 square feet of ministry space including worship, educational, multi-purpose, nursery, kitchen and office areas) to accomplish her mission and ministries in Lake City and beyond, Gateway is a Christ-centered, Biblically grounded, evangelistic, joyful and grateful congregation. 

Our church family is characterized as warm, friendly and welcoming to guests and members alike.  Services are blended with a balance of traditional and contemporary songs, dress and atmosphere.  Gateway Baptist Church actively partners with the Southern Baptist Convention, Florida Baptist Convention and North Florida Baptist Network to accomplish the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Perhaps you are seeking a new church home.  Maybe you are new in your spiritual journey and are sensing that a local church may be part of God’s plan for your life.  Either way, we invite you to give us an opportunity to be a blessing to you!
