about us

The Bridge Community Church is a warm and welcoming community located in San Jose, California.  At The Bridge you can grow in your faith, connect in authentic relationships, and impact your community and world.

The Bridge StoryDavid Lee Worship

The Bridge started when a small group of people met in Pastor Andy and Jenny’s living room to seek God and pray about launching a new congregation together. They felt called to build a “bridge” that would connect the diverse people of the Bay Area to God and to one another.   In 2009, The Bridge hosted their first worship service and over 100 people attended.  Since that time they have thrived as a real and personal community in Christ.

Mission

The mission of The Bridge is to “make disciples.”  We want to see everyone come into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and grow toward personal maturity in him.  Jesus wants to make us whole, as we reflect his power and goodness to a broken world.  Through passionate worship, in-depth Bible teaching, and unleashing compassion into the world, The Bridge seeks to help people experience God’s kingdom here on earth.

Home Groups
Home groups are the backbone of The Bridge.  We want to see every person get connected in local home group.  In a Bridge home group you can dig deeper into God’s Word and share life and prayer together.  There are a number of home groups from which to choose at The Bridge and we would love to get you connected to one.
