Love is the Basis for this Fellowship

 Open Gate Christian Fellowship has been formed as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our supreme desire is to know Christ and be conformed into His image by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not a denominational church, nor are we opposed to denominations as such, only their over-emphasis of doctrinal differences that have led to the division of the body of Christ. We believe that the only true basis of Christian fellowship is His (Agape) love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians.

We believe . . .

  • . . . that after Jesus ascended to Heaven He poured out His Holy Spirit on all believers empowering them to fulfill His command to preach the Gospel to the entire world.
  • . . . in the gifts of the Holy Spirit as mentioned in the Scriptures, and that they are valid if they are exercised within the guidelines established by Scripture.
  • . . . the believers are to covet the best gifts and seek to exercise then in love that the entire Body of Christ might be built up and edified.
  • . . . that love is more important than the most spectacular gift and that without love any spiritual gift would be worthless.
  • . . . that church government should be simplistic and depend upon the Holy Spirit to lead us and to be obedient to the Word of God (the Bible).
  • . . . that true Christian’s cannot be demon possessed.
  • . . . that God cannot be commanded or manipulated to heal or work miracles according to man’s will (the practice of positive confession).
  • . . . that human prophecy does not supersede the Holy Scriptures.
  • . . . that spiritual gifts and experiential signs and wonders must be balanced within the teaching of  Scripture.
  • . . . that the unity of the Spirit is the bond of peace and love, and that God has called us to a unique ministry that fulfills His special purpose in this generation.

We seek to teach the Word of God in such a way that its message can be applied to an individual’s life and lead that person to greater maturity in Christ.

We welcome you to fellowship with us as we draw near to Jesus in love and follow Him as He leads us to care for the lost, seek the young, heal the injured, and feed the healthy.
