Welcome to FaithGateway!
FaithGateway is an online community for readers to discover great content and engage with their favorite Christian authors. FaithGateway brings together content in many different forms: daily blog posts, book excerpts, devotionals, free downloads, videos, giveaways, contests, author chats, and more.
How does FaithGateway intend to achieve its mission?
Faith-inspiring content from top Christian authors. Our content has been created by well-known Christian authors. These authors are committed to helping you grow in your relationship with God. FaithGateway will provide unique opportunities to connect with our authors to answer your questions and help you on your spiritual journey.
Growing your faith. Whether you are exploring Christianity or involved in full-time Christian ministry, we are designing content to meet you where you are today and help you get to the next level in your spiritual journey. Our online Bible Studies, for example, invite you to take a deeper dive into many faith-based topics, either on your own or with a small group.
Sharing your faith. Some people find it difficult to share their faith. Yet, most people have no problem sharing a post on Facebook or Twitter with their friends and family. FaithGateway is designed to make it easy to start a faith conversation, and we encourage you to share and comment on our content on the most popular social networks available. In addition, all of our content is mobile-friendly and available whenever you are connected with your smart phone or tablet.
FaithGateway is brought to you by HarperCollins Christian Publishing, which is comprised of two publishing groups: Thomas Nelson, Inc. and Zondervan. Among these two groups are some of the most beloved authors within the Christian faith-based segment. HarperCollins Christian Publishing is a multi-platform content provider, creating inspirational products in formats that fit the needs of our audience. The company has nearly 300 years of combined experience in the Christian publishing segment, with products translated in nearly 200 languages and distribution in more than 100 countries. HarperCollins Christian Publishing’s mission is: “Inspire the world by promoting Biblical principles and meeting the needs of people with resources that glorify Jesus Christ.” We believe that our foundation is firmly rooted in this mission, encompassing our purpose and niche within the marketplace.
Doctrine of Scripture. The Bible is God’s unique revelation to mankind, the inspired, infallible Word of God. As such, it is the supreme and final authority and without error in what it teaches and affirms. No other writings are vested with such divine authority.
Doctrine of God. There is only one true God. He exists eternally as three persons — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — each fully God yet each personally distinct from the other. God is the creator of everything.
Doctrine of Sin. Everyone, regardless of race, gender, social class, or intellectual ability, is created in God’s image and for communion with God. But because of sin, that communion was broken and all of humanity was separated from God, the source of all life. Because of the fall, everyone deserves God’s judgment.
Doctrine of Salvation. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and God gives salvation and eternal life to those who trust in him. Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. It is a gift that is received by repentance and faith in Christ and his death on the cross and resurrection from the grave.
Doctrine of Christ. Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary — he was God in human flesh. He lived a sinless human life, yet willingly took upon himself our sins by dying in our place and on our behalf. He rose bodily, victorious over death. He ascended to Heaven and is at the right hand of the Father as the believer’s advocate and mediator. Some day, he will return to consummate history and to fulfill the eternal plan of God.
Doctrine of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Trinity, convicts the world of sin and gives new life to those who trust in Jesus. He indwells all believers and is available to empower them to lead Christ-like lives. The Spirit gives them spiritual gifts with which to serve fellow believers and reach out to a lost and needy world.
Doctrine of Judgment. At the final judgment, unbelievers will be separated from God into condemnation. Believers will be received into God’s loving presence.
Doctrine of the Church. All believers are members of the body of Christ, the one true church universal. Spiritual unity is to be expressed among Christians by acceptance and love of one another across ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, national, generational, gender, and denominational lines. The local church is a group of believers who gather for worship, prayer, instruction, encouragement, mutual accountability, community with each other, and as a witness to the world.
