Why We Exist As A Church
The purpose of our church is summarized in a single sentence based on two key scriptures:
“The Bridge is connecting people to God, each other and the world by creating environments for them to grow, serve and share.”
The Great Commandment: "37Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'[a] 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[b] 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." Matt. 22:37-40
The Great Commission: “19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matt. 28:19-20
WE WANT YOU TO GROW
At the Bridge we want you to grow. We not only want you to know Jesus as your Savior and Lord, but we want you to have a deep meaningful relationship with Him.
Life Groups are very important – We believe that every member needs to be part of one. Our church must grow Larger (worship) and Smaller (Life groups) at the same time.
WE WANT YOU TO SERVE
There are two ways that you can serve at the Bridge: What you “wanna” do & what you “gotta” do.
1.What you “wanna” do
At The Bridge we believe that every person has a God given gift. We want you to serve in areas that you are gifted in and passionate about. We are not looking for people to fill roles but roles to fulfill people. This is about serving that fulfills you. This process is called Equipping.
2.What you “gotta” do
At the Bridge we are a family and in every family there are chores to do and things that just have to be done. This type of serving isn’t necessarily what you want to do but it is serving that fulfills the needs of the body. We call this Washing feet.
WE WANT YOU TO SHARE
At the Bridge we are passionate about providing opportunities for you to share your faith. We do this through various mission opportunities and by encouraging you to Invest and Invite.
