The Bridge StoryDavid Lee Worship

The Bridge was a house church that outgrew its house.  It 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.   On May 3rd, 2009, The Bridge hosted their first worship service and over 170 people attended.  Since that time they’ve continued to thrive as a real and personal community of faith, hope and love.

Mission

The mission of The Bridge is to “make disciples.”  We want to see every person come into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and grow toward personal maturity in him.  Jesus wants to transform everyone’s life so that he or she can live emotionally, relationally and spiritually strong.  Through passionate worship, in-depth Bible teaching, and unleashing compassion into the world, we seek 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.

Affiliations
The Bridge Community Church is affiliated with the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). Founded in 1885, the ECC values the Bible as the Word of God, the gift of God’s grace and an ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through faith in Jesus Christ, the importance of extending God’s love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.

Beliefs

Consistent with classical Christianity, The Bridge affirms as central to its life and thought a number of evangelical emphases. Foremost among these are the following:

  • the centrality of the Word of God,
  • the necessity of new birth in Christ,
  • a commitment to the whole mission of the Church,
  • a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit, and
  • the reality of freedom in Christ.

We hope you visit sometime to experience what God is doing at The Bridge!
