What We're All About

Gateway is a church designed for the 21st century

Together we’re striving to become the kind of community described in the Bible – a church with relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, powerful prayer, honest friendships, and compassionate care.

In short, we’d like to have the kind of church that is filled with real grace and real people who love God, love people, and love life!

Our Vision

To reach and influence an ever-increasing number of people by building a large, bible-based, spirit-filled, contemporary-style church; changing mindsets and empowering people to connect with God, grow in faith, and serve the world.

The Church We See…
… is exciting, full of life, non-religious, attractive, confident, and faith-filled
…is relevant to this generation in the way it communicates and worships
…is open to the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit, within a safe, stable and strongly led environment
…is a deeply committed, loving family where everyone can find healing, refuge, and a new beginning
…equips and inspires ordinary people to live extraordinary lives as they discover their God-given potential.
…is both numerically large and spiritually deep, reaching new people for Christ, and developing growing followers of Christ.

Our Beliefs

Along with Christians throughout the last 2,000 years, in all nations, and in all denominations, we affirm the following statement of faith, known as The Apostles Creed:

      We believe in God, the Father Almighty, the maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried.

      He descended into Hades. On the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from where He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

      We believe in the Holy Spirit; the universal church; the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting.

Martin Trench

Lead Pastor

I came to Canada from Scotland with my family at the beginning of 2009, to serve at Gateway. It is such a privilege to serve as the Lead Pastor of Gateway love this church! I have a passion to present the Bible in a clear and life-affirming way, and see people set free from limiting beliefs, and come into an experience of the Abundant Life that God offers through faith in Jesus Christ. I am excited for everything that God is doing in our midst and have a great anticipation for what the future holds.
