The Gateway Church is a vibrant faith community centered in and committed to the city of Des Moines. Join us Sundays at Central Campus where people of all ages can learn and practice what it means to follow Jesus.
By grace Jesus Christ invites us into a radically new way of life, the life of the kingdom. But this requires practice. We have to learn new habits, new rhythms, an entirely new language. For hundreds of years, Christians in various traditions have entered into the life of the kingdom through certain daily, weekly, and monthly practices. Through prayer and fasting, solitude and silence, communion and confession, these ancient practices help us to become a more blessed, fulfilled and satisfied people.
Communities are the primary way that we disperse to be the people of Jesus throughout our city. Gateway is built upon a network small, medium and large groups that meet throughout the week, then gather on Sundays to share how the kingdom of God has become a reality in their lives.
We believe that the gospel is the dynamic for all heart change, life change, and social change and our mission is to take the whole gospel to the whole person to the whole world. All of our efforts are centered around proclaiming the gospel through justice, mercy, and church planting.
Our mission is to help people of all ages discover a meaningful relationship with Christ and grow in spiritual development. Our worship is centered around the preaching of the word, the eucharist of Christ's body and blood, giving of resources to the life of the church body, and communal celebration of who God is and what He is doing in our lives. Skeptics are always welcome!
