Our Four Core Values
Vision: Bridging divides through relationships, prayer, and sharing grace and truth so that people can meet Jesus!
We believe every church works hard to value all aspects of faith. But we also realize the need for specific focus in our area of ministry. Here’s what we hold especially dear at The Bridge:
The search for meaning and real truth is tough. There is a lot of misinformation and half-truths out there today. We’re tired of being deceived by these things. We believe God’s Word through the Bible is the one place we can always find absolute truth. The Bible is God’s love story to us.
The Bible tells us what God’s best for us is, but it wasn’t intended solely to be a rulebook that we, as imperfect people, must strive to live by in hopes to appease Him and get to go to Heaven. Instead, His free offer of Grace, through the death of His Son Jesus is the design by which we can see Him there someday. So as God works to clean all the garbage out of our own lives, we want to share the truth of His Word with the same grace He has given to us. Joshua 1:8
It’s how God’s work gets done!
Talking with God everyday about what’s going on in our lives is essential for a real relationship with Him. We realize that we need God’s help for handling all that life throws at us and prayer is our connection to Him in the good times and the bad.
God answers every prayer that is offered to Him. As we talk with Him about situations, feelings, frustrations, hurts, and joys, we trust Him to do what’s best for our lives and the lives of those we care deeply about. Philippians 4:6-7
Faith is about more than ourselves!
As followers of Jesus, it is our job to share His love with everyone. Jesus Christ is the author of Salvation. We believe that our faith is about more than just ourselves. A full faith requires we reach out to those around us who don’t know Jesus. Freedom can be found nowhere else so we want to introduce others to Jesus honestly and often! From our neighbors, to our friends and coworkers, to the ends of the earth, we want to share Jesus with the world! Matthew 28:19
We’re in this together!
We realize that we’re nowhere near perfect…and neither are you. That sounds harsh, but it’s true. Nobody has it all together, nobody! There is joy and pain in each of our lives. God doesn’t love one person more than another simply because they’ve known Him longer and we shouldn’t either. We need to stick together through thick and thin as we share our lives together. We want to be a place where life can be shared together. Genesis 11:6
