Mission Statement
Adopted 2009

Gates Presbyterian Church is a diverse congregation of about 600 Christians located in a western suburb of Rochester, New York. Established in 1828, we support the mission of the Presbytery of Genesee Valley and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Our faith is strengthened by worship services, which include traditional and non-traditional styles. We value the spiritual wisdom of all generations.

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we continue to learn and actively teach by the teachings of Jesus Christ. We reflect the love of God by evoking positive change for a better life for people in our local, regional, and worldwide communities.
