Identity to Freedom!

In all areas of our ministry we focus on developing the following:  (One core principle with five expressions as described by Bob Hamp) 

 

Core – Our understanding of Kingdom-Focused

    1. Hearing God Shift thinking from knowledge/learning base to hearing and responding to God’s voice

    2. Son's and Daughters (Disciples) not Servants and Slaves (Dependents) Shift thinking from target behavior to your identity in Christ

    3. Process vs. Moment The journey is a Process with Moments. Shift thinking from choosing good or evil focus to life or death focus

    4. Free People, Free People

    5. You're Only as Free as Your Relationships - Community

 

We believe that Community (relationship) is vital to the Christian life.

Community is not only a means for growth as a follower of Jesus but it is also the very thing we were created for. When in the garden of Eden man chose to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil our right relationship with God and one another was broken.  The work on the cross was a work of reconciliation.  Jesus created the way for us to be reconciled to the Father and to exist as His chosen people in unity. John 10:10 "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."  We live in a world of broken relationships, husbands and wives, parents and children, and even our relationships with one another has been reduced to 140 characters (twitter & texts).

 

At gateway:61 we want to see real Community restored through Jesus Christ.

 

We look forward to doing life with you!

 

Our beliefs determine our entire lives.
