What We Believe

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.  Our church is in agreement with the “Baptist Faith and Message, 2000” of the Southern Baptist Convention.  Below are highlights from the BF&M, 2000.  More information about the Baptist beliefs and about the Southern Baptist Convention can be found at www.sbc.net.

 

Our Vision

Gateway seeks to faithfully participate in our Lord’s “Great Commission” as found in Matthew 28:19-20.  It is our heart’s desire to exalt Jesus Christ as we grow in our relationships with God and each other by sharing the good news of God’s embracing love with everyone in our community and beyond, encouraging those who are struggling outside of God’s plan for their lives to begin a faith experience with Him through Jesus Christ, and facilitating the spiritual growth of those who know Christ as their Savior so they may develop joyful, fruitful lives through Him!

At Gateway we try to reflect Christ in every way. We strive to love and serve like Jesus, Matthew 11:28 says "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened.". Our mission as a church is to always have an open loving door for any that seek refugee through Jesus Christ.
