Gateway Baptist Church is a soul winning church, reaching into the community for Christ through actively sharing and promoting the message of the Gospel.  In addition, we currently support eight foreign missionaries.  We offer to arrange transportation to church for those who cannot get here otherwise.  Our educational ministry includes Sunday school for all ages as well as Gateway Christian Academy (formerly First Baptist Academy in Cahokia).  We seek to expand our outreach as the Lord directs.  Click here to learn more.
