God has given to us, His people, an amazing mission to glorify Him with our lives and to make Him known to others.2 Corinthians 5:17-21 gives us a glimpse of this mission He has given to us:
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
We believe that God in His sovereign plan has put us in Montgomery for a reason. We desire to be a blessing to this community and a light to those around us here. We also know that God's heart is for all the nations (people groups) to worship Him. Therefore, we are intentional in taking the Gospel to peoples around the world who have never heard.
In addition to the local and global efforts you see below, our elders are currently working on a comprehensive missions strategy for Gateway, looking at how God has gifted us and where He is leading us to focus our efforts. Our new missions strategy will begin in 2019.
