who we are
The Bridge Church exists to connect people to Jesus daily. We are a home to the lost, those seeking discipleship and everyone in between. We walk unified under the name of Jesus, who we seek to make famous.
The bridge code
We are led by the Word of God
The Bible is God's love letter to us. Every word of the Bible is written to guide our hearts toward the life God has called us to.
We are led by faith not by sight
It is impossible to please God without faith. We trust God and believe in taking risk for the sake of the Gospel.
We meet people where they are
Jesus pursued us, so we look to help people where they are. We believe you can belong before you believe.
We are called to make disciples
This is what it is all about! God has commissioned us to walk with people daily, announce our relationship through baptism, teach how to walk with God, and Jesus reminds us that He is with us.
We lead by serving
If you're too big to serve then you are too small to lead. We believe the greatest leadership is service to others. Every leader is a servant first. From the parking lot to the pulpit, everyone serves. Every role is different but they are all important.
We are generous with our time, talents, and resources
Generosity is about giving more than what is required. We see generosity as a privilege. We're generous with our time, talents and resources. We go first in our giving. God has given richly towards us, it's our honor to give back to Him.
We respond in prayer
Prayer invites God's power into our daily life. Whatever we are facing and wherever we are, we respond in prayer.
We live with passion in everything we do to glorify His name
Everything we do, we do it with passion. From our worship to our service we do it with Holy Spirit energy. Passion drives us. Passion for Jesus. Passion for people. Passion for His church.
What We Believe
We believe in one God who eternally exists in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. God the Father is the Creator and Ruler of the Universe. We believe that He is limitless in power, knowledge, wisdom, love, and holiness. We also believe that He has revealed himself as the Father of the redeemed.
Genesis 1:1, Genesis 26, Genesis 27; Genesis 3:22, Psalms 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is the second person of the Trinity and is co-equal with the Father. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heavens glory where he sits at the right hand of the Father. He will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22, Matthew 23, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-5, John 14:10-30, Hebrews 4:14, Hebrews 15, 1 Corinthians 15:3, 1 Corinthians 4, Romans 1:3, Romans 4, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Timothy 6:14, 1 Timothy 15, Titus 2:13
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17, John 16:7-13, John 14:16, John 17, Act 1:8, 1 Corinthians 2:12, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Ephesians 1:13, Galatians 5:25, Ephesians 5:18
ABOUT THE BIBLE
The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20, 2 Peter 21, 2 Timothy 1:13, Psalms 119:105, Psalms 160, Psalms 12:6, Proverbs 30:5
We believe that man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.
Genesis 1:27, Psalms 8:3-6, Isaiah 53:6a, Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1, Isaiah 2
We believe that salvation is a gift of God to man. Man can never make up for sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8, Ephesians 9, John 3:16, John 14:6, John 1:12, Titus 3:5, Galatians 3:26, Romans 5:1
ABOUT ETERNAL SECURITY
We believe that God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, therefore the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.
John 10:29, 2 Timothy 1:12, Hebrews 7:25, Hebrews 10:10, Hebrews 14
We believe that people were created to live forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is to live in Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, John 2:25, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:15
