Their heart is for believers to live the presence driven life and experience the manifest presence and power of the King of Kings as heaven invades earth and His Kingdom and His will is done on earth as it is in heaven. Their personal mission statement that guides their lives and ministry is to: "Love and Serve God, Love and Serve His People and Love and Serve this dying world by helping as many people as He gives us get one step closer to Jesus." Worship-Intercession and Prayer at The Gate allows them to fulfill their mission while encouraging others to do the same. His everlasting love sets our hearts on fire with first love for Jesus and we learn to love one another and all others.
