At The Bridge, we share Christ in our city, our nation and our world. Jesus gave His Church a mandate to reach the world in three areas:
You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8
1. “In Jerusalem” :: Our Cities
“Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight.” James 1:27
The primary way we reach our cities is through our Sunday Worship Gatherings, our partnership with the Pregnancy Resource Center, Serve our City Days, and outreach small groups.
2. “In Judea and Samaria” :: Our Nation
”Whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so that he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him.” 1 Corinthians 9:22
The primary way we reach our Nation is by starting new churches and strengthening existing churches through the partnership with the Acts 29 Network.
Acts 29 is a family of church-planting churches that are all about one thing: church planting. They exist to encourage, resource, facilitate, support and equip churches to plant churches that will plant church-planting churches.
3. “To the ends of the earth” :: Our World
“Jesus said to His followers, ‘Go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone.’” Mark 16:15
The primary way we reach our world is through strategic missions. The Bridge Church strategically invests a portion of its resources in missions work all around the world with a focus on unreached people groups, children and church planting. Current foreign partnerships include supporting The Haiti Collective, Caliber outreach, and the IMB.
How You Can Join Us:
Pray for each of these areas that we might reach people with the Good News of Jesus.
“Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’” Matthew 9:37-38
Go to these areas to serve others and show them God’s love.
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!’ He said, ‘Go and tell this people...’” Isaiah 6:8-9
Give your time and resources to reach people for Christ.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21
