East Gate Community Church is a gathering of hungry believers that have a deep desire to encounter Jesus through apostolic teaching, communion, fellowship, and prayer. We believe in creating a family environment for every individual to come to a personal yet undeniable place of encounter where you find your purpose in life and become passionate about walking that purpose out here and now. Through the process of Discovery, Development and Deployment, we seek to mature in Christ as we see this region become the kingdom of our God!
