Pastors Wayne and Mary Malone and the entire Open Gate family are glad you stopped by our web-site today!  If you have any questions that are not addressed here, please call the church office at 574-522-8250.

Open Gate Praise and Deliverance Ministries will be the catalyst for helping people become empowered by God to have success in life.  The vision of this organization is to see thousands come to know God in a personal way.  This can be accomplished by establishing faith-based programs that will help people in all areas of their lives.

We will build strong support systems for former drug addicts who have become Christians.  We will develop positive, innovative programs for ex-convicts who are trying to change their lives.  We will develop programs to help low-income one parent homes (affordable childcare, after school programs, etc.).  The effects of this organization will be felt throughout the United States and the world through outreach programs we develop.  Overall, our aim is to help people gain control of their lives through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We also strive to bring people into a more meaningful relationship with Jesus through teaching and showing them how to live holy.  The people in the community where we operate are our heartbeat and we will disciple them, help them and be the instrument God can use to empower them.  We will also go beyond our country's borders, where we have sponsored churches, and help them grow and succeed.

Our long range vision is to build a 10-15 acre campus called "Kingdom Acres".  It will include a church, a childcare facility, a preschool, a grade school and a Bible Institute.  It will provide ample space for large indoor and outdoor gatherings.  This is going to be a very exciting adventure!

Can we do it?  Yes, of course we can!  We can do all things through Christ which strengthens us.  God has chosen us, anointed us and equipped us for this work and we shall have great success!  We will impact countless lives, not only in Elkhart, Indiana, but around the world, in Jesus' name, Amen!

Romans 10:9-10 says "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved."

At Open Gate Praise and Deliverance Ministries, we believe in the power of the Word of God, the Holy Spirit, and the blood of Jesus Christ.  We believe that Jesus died for our sins; that He took our punishment so we can live the abundant life - here on earth and in heaven!  We believe poverty, disease, addiction, depression, and every form of bondage can be overcome through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.  Freedom can be yours - today!

Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord: This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.
