You Are For Me
 
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
God is always on your side.
He’s a thick-and-thin kind of God – rejoicing with you in the good times, encouraging you in the bad.
When I Speak Your Name
 
Powerful things happen when we proclaim the name of Jesus.
The More I Seek You
 
There is a precious promise given to us in James 4:8 that says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” You don’t have to clean up, say the magic words, or wait until your thoughts and actions are perfect; all you have to do is draw near and He will take care of the rest.
 
So many times, we chase after things – security, recognition, happiness – but the closer we seem to get to them, the more true contentment evades us.
God Be Praised
 
He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
 
 
Written during a pivotal season in our church’s history, “God Be Praised” was the title song of our third album – released in 2010. At the time, Gateway was experiencing growing pains.
“And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
 
Jesus told us that this is one of the things we should say to our heavenly father.  And years ago, this part of the “Lord’s Prayer” used to roll off my tongue so easily!  It was as smooth as praying over a meal.  I have discovered a different side to this prayer, however, and it’s anything but easy or smooth.  It’s all a matter of how badly you feel you’ve been wronged, and where you go from there that counts.
Glorify You Alone
 
Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but to Your name give glory, because of Your mercy, because of Your truth. Psalm 115:1
 
 
 
“Glorify You Alone” truly captures our heart as musicians and worship leaders.
 
Since Gateway Worship began, our heart has remained the same - to see God glorified and lives changed through worship.
 New Doxology
For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord endures forever. Psalm 117:2
Worship is eternal. When we worship we are joining with Heaven, stepping out of natural time and, as Pastor Thomas Miller says, “practicing eternity”. Worship songs have an amazing way of lifting us out of our current circumstances.
Think about it – have you ever walked through a very difficult season? Perhaps during that time, God used a song to minister to your heart.
No Sweeter Name
 
In the early days of Gateway Church, God began stirring the hearts of talented young worshipers and songwriters. During those exciting first years, one of those worshipers stood out to Pastors Thomas and Mary Beth Miller.
THE NUDGES OF GOD
by Tim Sheppard
 
In the early 1860s, Sarah Dunn was working on an elaborate table centerpiece in her family’s parlor in Waterloo, Iowa.
O The Blood
 
The very center of our lives is the Cross of Christ.
 
There’s no way to dress up a crucifixion, make it less violent and more presentable. It’s raw, and gruesome, and life changing. One look upon the Cross, one face-to-face encounter with the Savior who rendered our sins no more, and we are undone. His sacrifice demands our passion.
