Our mission at Gateway Church is to connect people to Jesus Christ and to one another. To do this we equip people with the teachings of the Gospel, and help mobilize them to be on mission with God to fulfill the “Great Commission” Matthew 28:19-20.

Cuba is located in the northern Caribbean where the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic Ocean meet. It is the largest island in the Caribbean and second-most populated with over 11 million inhabitants. Spanish is their official language.

Cuba is officially a secular state. The government amended their constitution in 1992 to drop the state’s characterization as atheistic. This relaxation of restrictions from the government has led to an increase in house churches. The religious landscape however is strongly defined by syncretisms. For example, Christianity is often practiced in tandem with Santeria, a mixture of Catholicism and mostly African faiths.
