Who We Are

The Bridge breaks out of the mindset that a church has to focus in one area to meet the needs of a specific demographic in order to be “successful”. We are a worshiping church with a strong desire to encounter Godʼs presence through our worship. We are a teaching church, placing emphasis on knowing Godʼs Word so we can become a living example of His love. We are “seeker-friendly” by offering an environment free of judgment. We are an outreach church by discovering the needs of the people in our community, both physically and spiritually, and meeting them so they can see Godʼs provision in their lives. We donʼt try to be all things to all people. We let God do that, in part, by using us at The Bridge…

Our Services

What are services like?
We believe that Godʼs intention for us in coming to church was to build strength through a community of believers and promote growth in our own spiritual lives through our relationship with others. We want our people living life together! Traditional and contemporary styles are blended so that we can worship God and grow in Him as a family. Isnʼt that more important than if the musicʼs too loud?

What is the community like?
The Bridge family is a good cross section of both young families and mature adults; of those who have been “churched” their whole lives, those just coming back to God, and those experiencing God in their lives for the first time. But young or old, the people here are passionate about knowing a real God and actively experiencing Him in their lives.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You’re not here by accident. Maybe you have no experience with church or “religion”, but something is telling you to give it a try. Maybe you were recently “saved” and are looking for a place to call your church home. Or maybe you have experience in church, but it hasnʼt brought the fulfillment you expected or were told it was supposed to bring. From any one of these perspectives, youʼre probably asking yourself, “Why should I try this church?” or “What makes this place different than all the rest?”. First, we operate under the principle that we are accepted and loved… and it’s not because we are Christians. Second, we believe Christianity based on trying to please God through our works has got to stop. Let the power of being loved and accepted by God remove your guilt and empower you to rest in what God says about you and how He sees you. God says youʼre accepted right now. So start living in that freedom and let the revelation of His love transform your life. Hope to see you at The Bridge!
