F.A.Q.

WHEN ARE YOUR SERVICES?
Our services are Sunday mornings at 11:00 am (with Sunday School at 9:45) and Wednesday Evenings at 7:30 pm.  We also have revival services from time to time throughout the year.  Information on special events is always prominently featured on our Home Page as well as at our Facebook page

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED AT?
We are located off of Beltway 8 (The Sam Houston Toll Road) between Bellaire Drive and Harwin Drive.   Directions to our Worship Center are located here.

WHAT ARE YOUR SERVICES LIKE?
Gateway of Hope is a Spirit Filled Church with Charismatic/Pentecostal style worship.  Our Sunday morning service includes about 30 minutes of Praise and Worship followed by a message from one of our pastors.  Our messages are biblically based and intended to challenge you in your personal relationship with God.  Following the sermon we usually offer a time for folks to respond to God with prayer.  For more information on what to expect during one of our services, click here.

ARE YOU A GAY CHURCH?
Absolutely NOT!  Gateway of Hope is an open and affirming congregation, and everyone (and we do mean EVERYONE!) is welcome to attend and participate in the life of our church, but we are not a “gay church,” we are a “Jesus Church!”   We are passionate about connecting REAL people to a REAL God in a REAL way!   For information on why we believe as we do about Homosexuality and the Bible, click here.

ARE YOU AFFILIATED WITH ANY DENOMINATION?  WHAT ARE YOUR BELIEFS?
Gateway of Hope is an independent fellowship, meaning we are not part of any denomination.  We do have fellowship with like-minded churches around the City of Houston, as well as around the country and the world.    We are Evangelical/Pentecostal in our beliefs. We believe that we are here to bring glory to God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We passionately desire to worship Jesus Christ, to instruct and encourage Christians to become like Christ and to share Jesus, our savior and Lord, with the world.   Our Statement of Faith can be found here.  Our Pastor has been ordained by The Covenant Network and ministers under the covering of Bishop Randy Morgan.  You can find out more about them at The Covenant Network.


I’D LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YOUR PASTORS AND LEADERS–TELL ME ABOUT THEM?

WHAT TYPE OF DRESS IS EXPECTED WHEN I COME VISIT?
Folks come to Gateway of Hope in everything from casual to suit and tie.  The best answer to this question is come as you feel most comfortable.  You can rest assured, you will be loved and welcomed with open arms!

HOW CAN I BECOME A MEMBER OF GATEWAY OF HOPE?
Gateway of Hope offers membership to all born again, baptized believers.  You can join Gateway of Hope by being baptized in water, or if you have already been baptized you can join by transferring your membership from another congregation, or joining by Statement of Faith.  Please visit with one of our ushers or Pastors before or after a service and we can provide you more information on this.

YOU SEEM TO BE FAR FROM WHERE I AM…WHERE CAN I FIND A CHURCH CLOSER TO MY HOME?
We are very blessed in Houston to have a large number of affirming Spirit Filled Churches, and while we would love to meet you and have you in fellowship at Gateway of Hope, more than anything, we want to see you plugged into a local church where you can be fed, can grow, and flourish.  A listing of other affirming Spirit Filled Churches is found here. (add page)

I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE MY TITHES AND OFFERINGS ONLINE.  CAN I?
Gateway of Hope operates solely based on the free will gifts of friends and members of the church.  If you are a member of another congregation, we encourage you to give your tithes there, and if the Lord so moves you to give an offering over that amount to Gateway of Hope.  If you would like to make an online donation you may do so hereWe greatly appreciate your generosity!
