Seeing Beyond the Impossible

East Gates International is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to serving the Church in China as well as other entities that best serve China’s future growth and development.

We fulfill this by working at all levels in China from engagement in government diplomatic activities to assistance with grassroots rural projects.  In this decade, East-West relations will have a significant impact on the world and will impact China's geo-political, socio-economic and religious activities and their contribution to society.  East Gates is humbled to be a small part of what is happening in the Church in China.

We’re now in the midst of Resurrection Season.  Have you ever thought about what life would be like if your destiny was six feet under -- forever?  This is what millions of Chinese contend with in their soul but they block it out of their minds because as most of them will tell you, “Life is about survival.  We don’t have the luxury of contemplating what the meaning of life is all about.”

Christianity and America’s Founding – Jack Ma

Back in September 2014, Jack Ma, founder, and CEO of Alibaba Holding Company spoke on China’s internet Taobao regarding his thoughts on Christianity and America’s founding.  He highlighted the strength of America as a young nation and her commanding power as a world leader today, attributing these qualities to her Christian heritage, and not her legal system, a position widely held by a majority of Chinese intellectuals.

Blessing Your Spirit

Having worked in the country for a number of years, they observed how nannies and caregivers in orphanages needed spiritual food to nourish their soul.

Some of the blessings cover topics such as: Knowing Your Purpose, Freedom from the Fear of Man, Sound of Heaven, Kingdom of Peace, Seeing God's Fingerprints and more...
