It's time to S.T.A.R.T.
Mission objectives of The Bridge Church
We insist that where God does not lead, we will not go. We rely on prayer to hear the heart of Jesus so that He can guide us to His endeavors, and to receive strength to overcome inhibitions in working cross-culturally.
We will intentionally focus on the "less is more" model. We may have fewer missionaries, fewer projects and fewer trips than many churches, but we will give more, pray more and involve ourselves more deeply with those we feel God prompts us to partner with.
Every follower of Christ is called to be ON MISSION. We will provide opportunities for participation in our Great Commission work and prepare a range of training and educational opportunities for all ages and all levels of experience. We will form partnerships that enhance our capability of applying the gifts, talents, and resources of the entire congregation.
We will take risks for the gospel. Radical sacrifice must always overflow from a heart that is gripped by the gospel.
We believe in a holistic approach to community developent that pursues a significant, lasting change in the people. In addition to enabling a community to meet its own basic needs, we will strive to promote a positive change in the whole of human life materially, socially, and/or spiritually. By transforming a community, it will in turn transform us.
