Gateway STL Church with Don and Anne Erehart

Our Pastors

Don and Anne Erehart

Pastor Don and Anne Erehart have been leaders in ministry since their college days. They started Gateway STL Church in March of 2021 with another couple when they recognized the need to meet and encourage each other during the COVID pandemic. Don loves motivating others to know and follow Jesus.  Anne is a talented educator and a strong leader who was voted Parkway Schools high school teacher of the year in 2023.  The two met in college and have been married for 36 years. Together, they have three grown children.  

Don and Anne are committed to building a strong, Christ-centered community where people can grow in their relationship with God and with one another. They believe that the local church is the hope of the world and are passionate about influencing their community with the love and truth of Jesus Christ.

Our Beliefs

At Gateway STL Church, we are all about being a caring community
that loves God and loves people!


We believe in one God, who exists in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit - and is the creator of all things.

The Gospel

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose from the dead on the third day, and will one day return to judge the living and the dead.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God, and is the final authority in matters of faith and practice.


We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, and that all who believe in Him are born again and become children of God.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, who empowers believers to live a holy life and to witness to the world about Jesus Christ.

The Church

We believe in the importance of the Church as the body of Christ, and that every believer should be a part of a local church.


We believe in the sacraments of baptism and communion, which are symbolic acts that remind us of our faith in Jesus Christ and our unity as the Church.


We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, regardless of race, gender, or denomination.


We believe in the sanctity of human life and the sacredness of marriage as a covenant between one man and one woman.

The Great Commission

We believe in the Great Commission - the call to make disciples of all nations - and that every believer has a role to play in fulfilling this mission.
