Why should I get Involved

At Open Gate Church we want you to live for the Kingdom of God. You do this by passionately Loving God, fervently Loving People, and faithfully serving the World.  Open Gate Church is committed to making disciples who walk intimately with Christ and serve both the body of Christ and the world, with the intention of bringing people into a transformational relationship with Jesus Christ, so that God will be glorified in all things.

Why Should I Get Involved?
The reason you should get involved with the ministry of Open Gate Church is because the Bible informs us that God has created us for good works (Ephesians 2:10), in order to use our lives to make a difference in this world for Him by ministering to others (Matthew 25:14-30), especially other Christians (Galatians 6:9-10; 1 Peter 4:10).

When we become Christians we are called to commit our
lives to 3 primary purposes.
Purpose #1
The most important of these purposes is to grow in our love for God (Matthew 22:37), and our knowledge of Him through the Bible, so that we would be able to “walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:9-10).
Purpose #2
The second greatest purpose we are to commit ourselves to is growing in our love for one another as Christians. Jesus tells us that there is no such thing as “Lone Ranger” Christians. He said the way that all people will know that we are His followers is by our love for one another (John 13:34-35). In fact, the Bible says that it is our love for one another that validates we love God (1 John 4:11).
Purpose #3
The third greatest purpose that God has given to us as Christians is to reach the lost with the gospel.  This was the Great Commission that Jesus left us with.  We are to purposefully interact with those who are outside of Christ, with the intention of leading them into a saving knowledge of the Lord, and then helping them grow in the faith by discipling them (Matthew 28:18-20).

How can I begin “Getting Involved” with
God’s Plan for my life?

The way that you can begin “Getting Involved” at Open Gate Church
is by committing to do 3 things with us;

1)  Attend our Sunday Worship Services in order to fall more in love with God, and grow in your relationship with God.
2)  Attend one of our mid-week Family Bible Studies in order to grow in our love for one another, by developing authentic relationships and actively living out your faith with others from within our church.
3)  Serve in a Ministry in order to discover, develop, and effectively use the talents that God has given to you, with the intention of building up the Kingdom of God.
At Open Gate Church we believe that if we are faithful to our mission, we will fulfill the vision that God has given to our church, and therefore we will glorify God, and build up the kingdom of God on earth.
