– Mission Statement Adopted by Session; June 2014

Gates Presbyterian Church is a Christian community that embodies God’s love and mercy in practical and meaningful ways. We live out our faith through:

Worship Glorify God through traditional and nontraditional styles of liturgy, prayer, scripture, thanksgiving, and music.
Hospitality Intentional practices and conversations that challenge us to imitate God’s welcome.
Mission Reflect the love of God by reaching out to those on the margins of our local, regional and worldwide communities.
Spiritual Growth Create spaces where all generations can learn together, listen, share our questions and struggles, and actively live our Christian faith in daily life.
