WHAT KIND OF CHURCH ARE YOU?
We are a Fundamental, Independent Baptist Church located in the quad-city area. We emphasize the preaching and teaching of the Bible that is both instructive and relevant to meet today's ever demanding needs and problems. We believe that God has inspired and preserved His Word for us in the King James Bible. The music at Gateway Baptist Church reflects an uplifting and Christ-honoring spirit through our song service, our choir and our special music.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I VISIT?
Our church wants you to feel warm and welcome from the moment you park your car to the last hand shake. Our friendly greeters will welcome you as soon as you walk in the door to help guide you to the appropriate services. We have a clean, lovingly staffed nursery for newborn up to three years of age, as well as Junior Church for ages three through the sixth grade. Sunday School begins at 10 AM. We encourage you to join us for challenging teaching lessons from the Word of God. If you should have any questions while you are with us, our helpful Ushers or Pastor are available prior to and after the service.
DO YOU OFFER SPECIAL CLASSES FOR DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS?
We offer classes for all ages. Sunday school is a great opportunity to break the congregation down into smaller groups that are targeted to specific needs in your life. Be ready to be challenged in your personal walk with God and expect to receive biblical truths and spiritual help.
DO YOU PROVIDE CHILDCARE?
We have an infant and toddler nursery available during the Sunday School hour, Sunday morning worship, Sunday night and Wednesday night services. Gateway Baptist Church offers a clean, safe, well-staffed nursery for infants through three years of age. Our staff is ready to make your little one's experience a time of fun and learning. A nursery is provided for all of our services and special events.
WHAT DO YOU OFFER CHILDREN?
We have several ministries for children from Sunday School, Junior Church, Kings Kids mid-week program to special summer programs.
HOW DO I GET TO YOUR CHURCH?
Gateway Baptist Church is located in Dewey-Humboldt on the west side of Hwy 69 at mile marker 280.
IS YOUR CHURCH HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE?
We have designated parking spots for handicapped and senior saints who need to park close to the church entrances. As a visitor, we consider you our honored guest and have specially reserved visitor parking just for you right next to our auditorium as well.
HOW CAN MY FAMILY AND I SERVE IN YOUR CHURCH?
Gateway Baptist Church has many ministries and opportunities to serve the Lord. Although most of our ministries require you to be a member, there are several available to those who are visiting and prayerfully considering membership such as Saturday soul-winning.
AM I SUPPOSED TO GIVE IF I'M NOT A MEMBER?
We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find a warm and friendly family spirit here, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please do not feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?
If you feel that God is leading you to become a member of Gateway Baptist Church, please request a meeting with the Pastor. Upon meeting with the Pastor, he will discuss with you the matter of your salvation and the method and motive of your baptism. You may become a member either by transfer of letter, baptism or by statement of faith.
