We are so excited that you are considering visiting us at Lifegate. We are a church that loves God and we love each other. We want you to feel at home from the moment you walk in the doors. We are Family and we can assure you…you will feel that Family atmosphere. We are doing life together!

Our purpose is to lead people to Jesus and become part of His Family. We love to worship the Lord and magnify His name.

Come and enjoy being a part of the Family of God.

Pastor Randy & Carolyn Ganzer



We believe that Jesus came that we would have life and have it to the fullest through the power of the Holy Spirit.  We have a passion to understand and live that kind of life and are committed to helping others to also understand that.  The foundation of our belief is to love God with our whole heart, soul and mind and to love our neighbor as ourselves.


The Vision of Lifegate Church is to minister to the needs of each other as a FAMILY would; one to another.

As directed by the Holy Spirit, Lifegate Church will reach Denton Texas and the surrounding areas for Jesus Christ.

We will minister to the needs of the believers as well as to those who do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, and we will partner with the Holy Spirit to build The Kingdom of God. Promoting a lifestyle of Grace as we balance of the Word of God and the Spirit of God.

One of the keys to accomplishing the vision of Lifegate Church will be to continually strive for discernment as we minister to the Spirit-filled community of believers in our area.

Randy has a true pastor’s heart.

He is plain spoken and doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to loving and encouraging people and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. He brings forth God’s word in boldness and truth without hesitation.
