About our History


Lifegate Baptist Church was founded in 1975 on five acres of land in a western suburb of St. Louis by Pastor Dan Deatrick.  Since that time, the Church has remained faithful to the truth of the the Word of God and has continued to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  While the Church has always been missions minded, the establishment of Faith Promise missions giving in 1997 has allowed the church to greatly expand it missions support to 32 missions works.  We praise God for the faithful people and testimony of Lifegate Baptist Church.
