Love God.
Love Others.




Gather for Worship.

Thanks to technology we can connect with just about anyone, anywhere. But there's still something special about being together in the same space. Every Sunday we gather for worship, with others forming a diverse group with a single goal; to know God and make Him known. We also gather in homes, on campus, and online throughout the week for worship, connection, and growth.

Grow in Faith.

we don't just want to survive our time in DC - we want to thrive. We hope to see people constantly growing in their faith through little steps and gigantic leaps as they continue to worship God and connect with each other. This key aspect of our church's culture is engrained in everything from our "Sprout" children's ministry to our adult home groups, Bible studies, and other ministries.

Go Where God Sends.

At City Gates our mission is to fulfill the Great Commandment – to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love others as ourselves – while living out the Great Commission to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” Matthew 28:16-20.  We support missionaries around the world and ministries around town, but we also know God has called each of us to be the hands and feet of Jesus, sharing His message and love with the people in our daily lives. 

Do you know that you were designed to love

God and love others? Do you know it all begins

by receiving the love God has shown to you in

Jesus and then reflecting this love to others?

Do you know that God is calling you to do that

here in the shadow of our nation’s capital?
