Who's your one? Imagine if every Christian could answer this question with the name of a person they're praying for and seeking to share the gospel with. This Sunday, September 8, we're starting a new evangelistic emphasis, and we'll each commit to pray for and invest in one person in need of the gospel.

LADIES BIBLE STUDY

What Are You Afraid Of? by Dr. David Jeremiah Begins Wednesday September 11, 2019 at 6:30 pm.

The question "What are you afraid of?" can be translated "What is it that immobilizes you? What is robbing you of sleep night after night? In this 6-session small group study, What Are You Afraid Of?, Dr. Jeremiah examines these fears: defeat, depression, disconnection, disease, and death.

He then guides you to realize that God is the answer to all your fears and to replace your unhealthy fears with a proper fear of God. You can look to the future and see nothing except His power and love guarding your every step. You can find the truth that sets you free to live the fearless life God created you to enjoy.

All ladies are invited to join us on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm. Study books are available for $15.00 “Don't fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.” Isaiah 43:1 For more information call or text 407-644-7741.

Hello Gateway Family and Friends,    HURRICANE DORIAN   Hurricane Dorian was one of the most powerful hurricanes on record and has devastated the Bahamas. While we are grateful that Florida was spared from the fury of the storm our hearts go out to those who have suffered so greatly in the Bahamas. You can provide direct support for the people of the Bahamas through our Baptist Global Relief (BGR). Go to  Hurricane Dorian Response  to give or to find out more information. You can also designate an amount for “Dorian Relief” on your giving envelope. You might consider giving based on what we were spared through Dorian’s eastern track. You might find this interesting: The people of the Bahamas are 69.9% protestant and Baptists are the largest group among protestants making up 34.9% of protestants and 24% of the islands’ population.   WHO’S YOUR ONE?   With the passing of Dorian, we are back to our regular schedule, but not to our old routine! We begin an evangelistic emphasis this Sunday called,  Who’s Your One ? This emphasis has been initiated through our North American Mission Board, and several of us attended the Orlando rally and worship on August 25-26. The purpose of this initiative is to call Christians to commit to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with other people. You begin by committing to pray for and share the Good News with one person. This Sunday morning, we will have a place in the foyer for you to write the name of your “one” on a white ping pong ball. We will display these in a clear container so that we can visually see our commitment to following Jesus. In the coming weeks we will have orange ping pong balls available for you to write the name of an individual that you have shared the Good News with.   LET’S FOLLOW JESUS   We will begin  Disciple’s Path: The Journey  on Sunday night September 15 at 6:00 p.m. This will be a life-changing year-long study of what it means to know and follow Jesus. If you have not participated in an in-depth discipleship study before, I would urge you to join us. We are all called not just to be believers, or church members, but to be disciples of Jesus Christ learning to do all that he has commanded us to do (Matthew 28:19-20). You can order Book 1 (3.95) or the 4-volume set (9.95) at  lifeway.com . Order your book ASAP so that you can receive it in time for our September 15 meeting. If you are not able to order online call Dyanne at 407-644-7741. If you are not able to join us on Sunday evenings contact me about alternative ways to be a part of this journey.   BAPTISM SUNDAY   We will have Baptism Sunday on September 15. This will be a great day to celebrate those who have professed their faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior and are following him in believer’s baptism. If you have not been baptized by immersion since you have come to personal faith in Jesus Christ, we invite you to be baptized September 15. For more information contact me or Dyanne in the church office. You can message through chat here on the Band, email us at  info@entertolive.org , or text to 407-644-7741.   ALL THINGS TO ALL PEOPLE TO SAVE SOME   As summer comes to and end and we begin to turn towards the fall season, I encourage you to recommit yourself and turn towards full engagement in following Jesus. Our key verse for revitalization was 1 Corinthians 9:22 where Paul said that he had become “all things to all people so that by every possible means he might save some.” Begin to turn toward full engagement by asking yourself what I have I changed in my life since the fall of 2017 to win people to Christ? What changes have I resisted, that have kept me from winning people to Christ?   1 CORINTHIANS 9: 19-23   “Although I am free from all and not anyone’s slave, I have made myself a slave to everyone, in order to win more people. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win Jews; to those under the law, like one under the law—though I myself am not under the law—to win those under the law. To those who are without the law, like one without the law—though I am not without God’s law but under the law of Christ—to win those without the law. To the weak I became weak, in order to win the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that I may by every possible means save some. Now I do all this because of the gospel, so that I may share in the blessings.”   Let’s follow Jesus together,    Pastor Bruce

Have you been baptized since you believed? Follow Jesus in believer’s baptism on Sunday September 15 during our 10:00 a.m. worship service. Baptism as a believer in Jesus is an exciting and very special experience. Jesus commanded that all of his followers be baptized. The word baptism means to dip or immerse in water. Jesus was baptized by immersion in the Jordan river. The early church also baptized believers by immersion. The immersion in water symbolized two things: First, the washing away of sin, the forgiveness that we receive through Jesus’ payment for sin by his death on the cross. Second, that when we repent of our sin and place our faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit baptizes us into Christ. So we have died to the old self and been raised to new life in Jesus.! Call or text Gateway at 407-644-7741 for more information.

"I am not ashamed of the Good News, for it is the power of God for salvation to all who believe!" Romans 1:26.  Join us this Sunday September 8 at 10:00 a.m. as we kick off the fall with our  Who's Your One?  evangelism emphasis. Begin praying about who God would have you share the Good News with. Then on Sunday morning we want you to write the name of that person on a white ping pong ball. We will place this in a clear container so that we can visually see our commitment to sharing Jesus with others.

1Let’s Follow Jesus   Jesus said, “A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance” (John 10:10, CSB).  Have you ever wondered what does that mean, or how can I experience that abundant life? It can only be known and experienced through a deep and abiding relationship with Jesus Christ. A relationship is more than just an acknowledgment, an affirmation, or even a presence. We can’t experience the life that produces abundance just by professing faith in Christ, being a member of a church, knowing the right answers, or experiencing a powerful worship service. We must follow Jesus-together.  In the coming weeks I will begin a new study that will take you deeper into the life of following Jesus. It’s called, Disciple’s Path. Through this study you will come to come to know Jesus like never before, living in a daily relationship with him. Not only will you know Him more, you’ll discover more about yourself and what God has for you. You will be transformed, and you will be empowered to help others to know, experience, and follow Jesus as well.  We will take this journey together over the course of the next year. Are you ready to abide with Jesus like never before? It will take discipline, sacrifice, and dedication, but it will all be worth it. This isn’t the kind of study where you can just show up and share your opinions or listen to some good ideas. This will require you to develop new habits, change the way you think about God, the church, yourself and others.  If you would like to join in this journey of following Jesus, let me know. The schedule will be determined based on who commits to the Disciple’s Path. For more information or to join me in following Jesus along the Disciple’s Path send me a message, email info@entertolive.org,or text to 407-644-7741.  God bless you, Pastor Bruce
