Jesus never saw church as a place to go, but as a people who love Him and who are learning to love others. At Gateway, no matter what your spiritual background or past or where you are now, we want you to come as you are—questions, doubts, skepticism, whatever—bring it!  Below are some books and teaching series that may be a starting point for conversation.

Skeptics, doubters, anyone really…

Everyone is welcome at Gateway, regardless of what you think about church or God or religion. We started this church for people who don’t really like church. This is a safe place for skeptics and doubters to ask their questions. We know lots of people have been burned by church experiences in the past. We hope this is a place for everyone to sort out authentic faith in a very real God and begin to experience it themselves. Below are some books and teaching series that may be a starting point for conversation.
