Gateway Center for Israel exists to guide Christians towards a biblical and sincere love of Israel & the Jewish people. One of the biggest barriers to this is faulty theology that develops due to unhealthy belief systems about what the Bible really teaches related to God's chosen people.

Many scholars conclude that Hitler’s violent antisemitism was enabled by a wake of anti-Jewish theologies of church heroes like Calvin and Luther. Living in a post-Holocaust world, it is difficult for modern Christians to believe that antisemitism was flowing in the lifeblood of the Church for thousands of years. Yet, it was. Why?

Many Christians feel that Israel is important, but they don’t know where to start. We at Gateway Church have found that prayer is the best place to begin. Put simply: prayer connects your heart to God’s. When you pray for something consistently, you receive a burden for it. When you’re burdened for something, you care […]
