Through the various ministries of City Gates, we strive to help those who need a hand up to get on their feet again. Thanks to our volunteers and generous donors of in-kind gifts and financial assistance, we can help those in need with food, furniture, clothing, guidance, and more.
CGM first started providing services to people in 1995 under the guidance of another organization. In 2005 we incorporated as City Gates Ministries and received our 501(c)(3) status from the IRS as a non-profit charity.
We currently serve over 500 people every month through our various programs. As funding increases, we look forward to being able to serve even more people and provide additional services.
We are strategically positioned for this task because:
- We are small enough to meet people on an individual basis
- We can spend the time needed to address their particular needs.
- We have a network of partnerships with other ministries and services so that we can effectively refer people
- We treat people like the individuals Jesus loves, not as just another number in a file.
- We treat people with dignity and respect.
Reaching out to people in need
Reach out to our friends through the gospel of Jesus Christ. Using donations as tool, we aim to bring a sense of hope, build long lasting relationships and stabilize those struggling with poverty and hardships
Empower people to become self-sufficient, contributing members of their communities
When we work together we can offer a more rounded and holistic approach to peoples’ needs. Our ultimate goal is to bring people into the fellowship of the Body of Christ and a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We have developed a series of ministries to facilitate this goal. See Ministry Areas.
We believe that everyone is called to health, happiness, and wholeness. In the hope found only in the message of Jesus Christ, many find encouragement, purpose and strength to believe in their destiny and as a result are able to put their broken lives back together. We love them with the love of Jesus and, in so doing, preach a powerful Gospel message. We meet people at their point of need, and attempt to love and serve each one of them. We also believe that this is one of the greatest missions of the church and it is our desire that the churches work in unity to accomplish this great mission. We believe intercessory prayer is vital for this ministry as we tackle very challenging problems. As we have developed it, there is a spot for everyone in this type of ministry. No contribution is too small or insignificant.
