Write the Vision Down

Hab. 2:2 Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.
Hab. 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.

Welcome to The Gate Church. In 2004, the Lord spoke to Louis and Kathy by Apostles and Prophets that they would build a church of people committed to the presence of God. We are passionate about worship and prayer. We believe in God's Holy Word and the Power of God to transform the lives of those who surrender to Him. We have a vision, mission, and a purpose.

Our Vision is the Kingdom of God on Earth. Through Revival (Hosting His Presence), through Power (Releasing our faith and His Spirit to impact people’s lives) and Love (Meeting people at their point of need and bringing God’s answer).

We are an apostolic house and an apostolic and prophetic people.

Our Mission is the People of Jacksonville, Northeast Florida and the World. To bring them into relationship through Jesus Christ and empower them with the Holy Spirit and the truth of His word.

Our Purpose is to see the Earth full of men and women who can bring heaven’s realm (God’s rule) into the seven mountains.

Why The Gate

In 2009, Louis was ministering on a Friday evening. In the middle of Louis’ sermon, the Lord spoke to Louis that He wanted the Church named the Gate. When Louis looked up, Louis saw the words in an open vision. That night the Lord deposited in Louis that He wanted The Gate Church to be a house where His people could encounter the Presence of the Lord.

Gen. 28:17 And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!”
