At the Bridge we connect all people to encounter God’s Word and Spirit:
Ex 33:15 If your presence will not go with me, do not bring us up from here.
Encountering God has often been reduced to meetings. We are a people who desire to encounter God, and revel in His presence in every aspect of our walk with him. His presence in our lives is paramount, through His word, in prayer, in worship, prophetically by His Holy Spirit.
Gen 1:26 And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness…
God is an engaging Spirit, from the Garden of Eden and until today He has engaged mankind. Our mandate through Matt 28, is to Engage people. We are called to Engage all people from all walks of life. Not just Christians. As a Bridge to our community we want to Engage people at every level, to reveal the Father’s heart to them
Equip the Saints
Eph 4:11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry.
As part of our vision, we desire to see a “Priesthood of Believers”, equipped for the work of the ministry, no matter where your ministry or harvest field is. As a Priesthood we are all ministers of the Gospel, at every level of social strata, that God has placed us to be a blessing to our peers.
Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you
Whenever God has a plan, he has a person for that plan, so we envision to see leaders emerge in business, schools, colleges, universities and the church. He has through our DNA, the unctioning of the Holy Spirit and His grace upon us, gifted everyone to lead in some manner. Our desire is to see men, women and children fulfill God’s call upon their lives.
Extend the Kingdom of God
Acts 1:8 Jesus said, ‘You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Jesus’s heartbeat was “to the ends of the earth”, not a small vision. We are meant to be global thinkers.
Our starting point is to extend God’s kingdom to our neighbors, family, and to the local church. However, we want to build Bridges to our community, surrounding areas and beyond, touching foreign shores.
Jesus makes it clear that the burning desire of every Christian’s heart should be that Christ made famous in every nation, in every city, town, village everywhere.
