One of the most often asked questions about The Bridge is “What kind of church is this?” We are a contemporary community of Christ-following adults, teens and children aided by His Spirit to demonstrate and share the truths, principles and promises that He taught and modeled. By contemporary community we mean:
The value we place on celebrating God honoring diversity. When you visit the Bridge you will find people from every generation, race, socio-economic 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. 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.
Our desire 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!
