Gateway Church is an exciting community of believers seeking to represent Jesus well in our city.
When you visit Gateway Church you will find the atmosphere to be warm, relaxed and casual. The music is relevant and uplifting and the messages are designed to help you deal with real life.
To make it easier for parents to feel comfortable as they explore their faith we have a well-staffed nursery and a safe, high quality children's program.
Our desire is to be a place where people can be themselves as they explore the Christian faith and one of our greatest goals is to be a community where people can become fully devoted followers of Jesus.
We believe in one God, who is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and the Savior of anyone who puts their faith in Him alone for eternal life. We believe Jesus is the living Son of God. We believe that those who receive new life in Christ are called to be holy in character and conduct, and can only live this way by being filled with the Lord's Spirit. We believe in the Bible and seek to establish our faith and actions on its teachings. We believe God wills for people everywhere to know Him and that the purpose of the church is to tell the world about Christ through its worship, witness and loving deeds.
Our vision is to be a church that is actively reaching St. Charles County for Jesus Christ through consistently planting new congregations, by seeing people come to know Jesus Christ as Lord on a weekly basis and by discipling believers through a network of small groups that enable us to minister to one another's needs as we encourage and build each other up in Christ, and by identifying and meeting the needs of our community in a way that shows them the love of Jesus Christ.
The Wesleyan Church is a Protestant, evangelical, holiness denomination with a rich heritage. We have seen it as our special mission to emphasize the message of "full salvation from all sin." We teach that a victorious Christian life is possible for all believers through the experience of both forgiveness of sins and the filling of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
WHO WE ARE
WHAT WE BELIEVE
THE WESLEYAN CHURCH
Steve has served as the Sr. Pastor of Gateway Church since July of 2001. He loves Jesus, his family, St. Louis Cardinals baseball and U2... in that order. He and his wife, Merita have five beautiful children and one insane cat (which is ironic since Pastor Steve isn’t a “cat person”). It's never dull – or quiet – at the Colaw house.

Jason is a relative newcomer to Gateway, starting in July with the goal of growing into the role as it expands. He lives in Overland, MO with his wonderful wife Breanne and his insane dog, Jasmine. Although Jason brings more coffee shop knowledge to the table than Church experience, his desire and passion is to see people meet and grow in relationship with Jesus, to see them become connected to a church that loves and connects them with opportunities to be the body of Christ in the world, and to watch them grow to maturity. You may contact Jason at Jason@mygatewaychurch.tv
Mark has been the worship leader at Gateway Church since August of 2008. Mark is a gifted musician from a family of gifted musicians. But more than music, Mark has a heart for Jesus and desire to lead people in authentic worship. Mark and his wife Becca live in O'Fallon, MO.
