Our Core Values

The Bridge exists to share with our world God’s love as revealed through His Son, Jesus Christ. We are here to pursue a vital, living relationship with the Lord, and with one another, in the power of God’s Holy Spirit. Our core values govern how we, as a congregation, gather, what ministries we provide, and where we invest both our physical and financial resources. Each of the following core values form a part of our vision of what The Bridge will be:

  • Prayer and the Word of God are our Foundation.
  • Every person is valuable to God and His Kingdom.
  • The Christian Life is being fully devoted to Christ and His cause.
  • Being reborn into His Kingdom, we should be authentic Followers of Christ. We should continually grow in Christ by learning His way, manifesting His power, and serving our world.
  • Every member is a minister, called to have a servant’s heart. We should invest our time, talents, and finances for Christ’s cause, to expand His Kingdom.
  • Jesus Christ actively demonstrated His heart for the lost, and so should we, by deliberately reaching out to others. We believe that the most effective Evangelism happens through personal relationships.
  • Everyone should involve themselves in an intimate group of believers, where “community” happens.
  • We embrace the ethnic and economic diversity of our City and its surrounding areas, in every way, resulting in ministry that impacts our area of influence.
  • We have a world-wide calling. We will therefore partner with ministries throughout the World, proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ, to reach every soul, everywhere.
  • We are committed to honoring God and using His gifts to us, by ministering with excellence for maximum impact.
