New Here?  WELCOME!
 
Welcome to Gates of Praise Church of God! The family of God here and the Pastoral Staff warmly invite you to be a part of this great fellowship. We hope that you will feel at home here.  No matter how you ended up on our site, we're glad you're here. Take some time to get to know us here, then we hope to get to meet you, in person, soon. People have walked into Gates of Praise COG from every walk of life and grown in their relationship with God, found meaningful friendships, and discovered the joy in serving others. 

Come as you are!  We are a very casual congregation. We are mostly dressed in business casual wear, jeans & t-shirts. You will see  those that dress very casual and some may wear their “Sunday best.” However, it's very likely the Lead Pastor will be wearing jeans!



Matthew 22:37-40 (NLT)
37)Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’[a] 38)This is the first and greatest commandment. 39)A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40)The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
