About Eastgate Ministries

Eastgate Ministries is a multifaced, nondenominational ministry founded by Roy Roden in 1995. with the vision to equip believers to come into their full identity and inheritance in Christ. To know their heavenly Father and His love, and from the place of intimacy, a minister in the power of the Spirit to reveal on earth that which is in heaven. We especially desire to see the body of Christ unite as one to form a Kingdom Force to impact their families, region, and nations for Christ. We also believe in the 7 Mountain Mandate as well as the five fold ministries of Christ that God is establishing in the Apostolic/Prophetic Church.

To comply with this mandate, we seek to help every believer know their call and develop their gifts to function in the body of Christ for the work of ministry, including the children and youth (1 Cor. 12:18).  We are always mindful how we can serve the Master’s household, not be served by it, to build up the body of Christ unto the edifying of itself in love. (Eph. 4:16) Thus, our goal is not to use people to build up our ministry but to build up the members of the body of Christ in love. The greatest resource that we have is found in God’s people. We esteem Jesus Christ, His truth, His love, and His gifting and the presence of the Holy Spirit and the Father’s love, and the fellowship of His people, to be the greatest treasures that we can possess on this earth.

There is a major outpouring of the Holy Spirit coming with the fire of the Father’s love that will ignite the Church with His glory. Even now, the harvest is ripe.  In summary, we seek to be placed for believers to come together for fellowship under the banner of Christ and His love to meet with the Lord. Our goal is to help everyone know their mission in life and be properly trained and equipped to perform it, so when we all stand together on the great judgment day before our King, we will hear the words that will be the greatest reward of all, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”
