Roughly 62% of the people in Beaufort County do not attend church. That is 101,371 people that do not fully grasp what Jesus did for them on the cross and are not experiencing authentic community and the abundant life found in Jesus Christ. God laid the Savannah area on our hearts 5 years years ago and in His perfect timing, He has lead us to start a new church in this area. Our heart is to connect people to Jesus and to bring unity to this piece of our nation. We don't think Sunday morning should be the most segregated day of the week. The Bridge Church is on a mission to connect all ethnic groups, generations, economic classes, and denominations.
We want to meet people where they are and introduce them to the life-giving creator that loves us unconditionally. We want to be a community that brings glory to God by living lives that point to the gospel, and encourage discipleship that equips and mobilizes people for ministry here, there, and everywhere.
