our mission




Matthew 28

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”


Our God-given mission as a church is founded in Jesus’ commission to His disciples and the local church. It focuses our effort and gives clarity to everything we do in reaching the world around us with the love of Christ. 


We are constantly seeking the leading of the Holy Spirit, and wisdom of God’s word in what we should be doing across the breadth of ministries at Gateway Church, and expectantly await all that God wants to do in and through us in the future.

"Our mission is to teach and resource people to live their day to day lives in relationship with Jesus Christ."

our values

JESUS CHRIST the Son of God and Saviour of the world




















OUR HERITAGE as part of Churches of Christ in Victoria and Tasmania

we see a

church that:

Is in strategic partnership and relationship with local leaders and organisations to better the city of Warrnambool and the southwest region.

Worships together with power and boldness led by the Holy Spirit. 
Is filled with people who care enough to share the good news of Jesus Christ over fences with neighbours and around tables with strangers.
Is brave enough to hold a mirror up to itself and change where necessary.
Is home to the broken and lost, with an open door and a friendly welcome.
Is generous and strategic in its support of 
local and overseas mission.

Is a light on a hill beckoning people to come home.
