Psalm 24:7 – “Lift up your heads, you gates, be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of Glory may come in.”
Proverbs 25:2 – “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; it is the glory of kings to search out a matter.”
Lionsgate Christian Fellowship is a church, or body of believers, that are searching for the deep, hidden treasures of God. Pirates of the Kingdom that seek to bring Heaven to earth; that do not merely articulate what they believe in, or don’t believe in, but are on a mission to become the tabernacle of God; His dwelling place, in order to show the world what He looks like; His heart; and usher in renewal, reformation, and the Renaissance to our communities.
We meet in an informal coffee house atmosphere that nurtures fellowship and spiritual growth. We are learning to read the Bible through Hebrew eyes, and change the way we look at God forever; learning about the treasures hidden in Him to be revealed in our time; to develop prophetic and apostolic communities that turn the world right side up!
Our meetings are casual and are held at 12:30 each Sunday at 6237 Vance Road, Suite 4, Chattanooga, TN 37421. Come as you are!

Lionsgate is a non-denominational Christian ministry devoted to The Great Commission of our Lord as quoted in Matthew 28: 18 – 20:
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We are committed to unity within the Body of Christ. We see ourselves as only one expression of Christ’s Body on the earth. As such, we endeavor to assist other churches in every way we can to fulfill their mandate before the Lord.
We believe that God communicates to us in ways we can each understand. The Hebrew people think in terms of function, and the Greeks think in terms of form. Therefore, we endeavor to examine and teach the Scriptures from the Hebraic perspective.
There is only one true God, Who is revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Word (Logos) of God. The Word was with God in the beginning, which states His pre-existence as one with God. “By Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth” (Colossians 1:16), therefore making Jesus the Creator. Jesus Christ is the Purpose of God found in all creation. He is the Father’s delight and desire, and the Father looks for the reflection of Jesus in all of creation. Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and he End. In the Beginning, it was the ultimate purpose of God for all things to be summed up in Christ. (Ephesians 1:10)
Jesus Christ, Who pre-existed with God in the form of God, emptied Himself to become fully a man, being born of a virgin by the seed of the Holy Spirit, that He might be the propitiatory sacrifice for the sins of mankind. Through His sacrifice made on the cross, all who believe in Him and His sacrifice have their sins remitted and are restored to the fellowship with God that was lost by man’s transgression.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8) and that His ministry in and through the church by the Holy Spirit has not changed from the beginning. We accept, acknowledge, and encourage and seek all of the biblical gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit ad present and vital for the church to accomplish her full purpose today.
We believe in the Divine inspiration and authority of the 66 books of the Bible as the complete canon of God’s testimony to mankind. We are committed to esteeming Scripture as the very Word of God, inerrant in its original form.
