Prior to merging to become one church (Citygate Ministries), two separate churches met in our downtown church campus, First Baptist Church of Fort Myers and Elevation Ministries. First Baptist Church has a long heritage in the downtown Fort Myers area and Elevation Ministries was a non-denominational church with its heritage in the Pentecostal Church of God.
Citygate has a bright future as we are in a season of numerical growth. God is using us to reach the lost and meet the spiritual needs of the people He loves in downtown Fort Myers in a unique way. We have a passion to continue to progress as one of the most diverse church bodies in Southwest Florida, connecting people of all ages, all ethnicities, and all socioeconomic backgrounds to their purpose in Christ so that we can release them to change the world with the gospel.
