When you visit the Bridge you will find people from every generation, race, socioeconomic status and Christian tradition. You will also find many who have never had a prior church experience of any kind.We are determined to say “Welcome!” to any and all who Jesus welcomes and receives.
“…among us you are all equal…also since you are Christ’s family, then you are Abraham’s famous descendant, heirs according to the covenant promises.” Galatians 3:28-29 MSG
Our music is one example of our diversity. Although the Bridge is committed to a wide range of contemporary and progressive musical expressions, we also recognize the great value of tapping into our rich two thousand years of worship tradition. More important to us than the style of our music is the spirit of our worship …. from the heart, in spirit and in truth.
“…but an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers” John 4:23 NASB
Our desire is to build authentic relationships. In an often impersonal contemporary culture, we seek to be family to one another, loving each other as Christ loved us. We are not an exclusive or reclusive group of people. Anyone is welcome at The Bridge. We willingly lay aside secondary matters and stubborn insistence in doctrinal disputes which often polarize Christian communities. Instead, we choose to concentrate on the basic core beliefs which all true Christians share in common. Whether you are young or old, rich or poor or in-between, married or single or divorced or widowed, Republican or Democrat or something else politically, from any racial or ethnic group, Jesus welcomes you and so do we!
“[….with an older man]…Talk to him as you would your own father, and to the younger men as your brothers. Reverently honor older woman as you would your mother, and the younger women as sisters.” 1 Timothy 5:1-2 NASB
