What We Do
Gateway of Grace's Educational and Community ministries provide English as a Second Language and citizenship classes, children's educational programs and ESL and special event transportation among many other services. We help refugees furnish their apartments, find jobs, enroll their children in school and begin the path toward developing new relationships and healthy communities. Each refugee family has unique circumstances. Gateway of Grace responds to each family's specific needs with a needs assessment and plan of action. We empower refugee families with basic resources and celebrate their arrival, ensuring each new member flourishes in their new home. We passionately embrace that the sovereign Lord has brought refugee families to us for the purposes of healing, restoration and experiencing Christ's love.

What We Believe
We believe in God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
For our salvation, he came down from heaven and was crucified, died, and rose on the third day. He ascended into heaven and will come back to judge the living and the dead. We believe the Church is the universal Body of which Jesus Christ is the head. We believe all Christians are called to bear witness to Jesus Christ and carry on his reconciling work for the salvation of the world.
We uphold the life, death, and resurrection of Christ as the reason for our mission.
We base the principle of our mission upon the Scripture.
We fervently look to the Lord in prayer for our discernment, direction, and decisions.
We respect and appropriately adopt the ways of indigenous cultures.
We value mutually beneficial collaboration among Christians for achieving our mission.
