WHERE WE ARE AND WHERE ARE WE GOING?

RADICAL CHANGE. LIFE CHANGE IS THE GOAL. REACH PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE TO TAKE THEM WHERE THEY NEED TO GO. EVERYONE HAS A STORY, BUT WHEN WE ALLOW GOD TO WRITE THE STORY FOR US - LIVES ARE TRANSFORMED.

RADICAL FAITH. WE BELIEVE EVERY PERSON HAS MEANING AND PURPOSE. WE WERE MEANT TO DO MORE THAN EXIST. IT IS OUR GOAL TO HELP EVERY BELIEVER FIND WHAT IT IS GOD’S CALLING TO THEM TO DO WITH THIS THIS LIFE THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN AND LIVE OUT THEIR FAITH FOR THE GLORY OF GOD.

RADICAL DIVERSITY. DIVERSE COMMUNITY - GOD IS A MISSIONARY GOD IN THIS CULTURE AND IN EVERY CULTURE. HIS NATURE DOES NOT CHANGE WITH LOCATION. WE ENVISION A FAITH COMMUNITY WITH ETHNIC DIVERSITY AS THE AREA IT’S CALLED TO REACH. OUR MISSION IS TO REACH PEOPLE WITH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. THE GOSPEL IS RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING HARMONY REGARDLESS OF CULTURES AND CLASSES.

RADICAL GENEROSITY. WE DESIRE TO SEE GOD BUILD A SPIRIT OF GENEROSITY THAT IS CONTAGIOUS THROUGHOUT THE BRIDGE CHURCH. WE DREAM ABOUT GIVING THE RESOURCES GOD HAS GIVEN US BACK TO THE COMMUNITY IN BIG WAYS. WE HOPE TO HELP PEOPLE SEE THAT RESOURCES ARE TOOLS TO BE USED FOR GOOD IN THE COMMUNITY.

MISSION

LOVE. MATTHEW 22:34-38 WE DESIRE TO LOVE OUR COMMUNITY RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE REGARDLESS OF PAST AND PRESENT. THE BRIDGE CHURCH IS A CHURCH THAT EXISTS TO BE IN THE COMMUNITY AND MAKE IT AN EVEN BETTER PLACE.

LEAD. MATTHEW 28:18-20 WE WANT TO HELP MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN GROW INTO THE LEADERS THEY WERE MEANT TO BE. WE DO THIS BY SHOWING THEM THAT FOLLOWING JESUS IS THE ONLY TRUE WAY TO LIFE.

LAUNCH. ACTS 1:8 WE WANT TO EQUIP PEOPLE TO CHANGE THE WORLD THEY LIVE IN. WE KNOW THAT WE CAN'T SOLVE ALL THE PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD BUT WE ARE DOING ALL THAT WE CAN TO LAUNCH PEOPLE OUT TO FULFILL THEIR PURPOSE AND MISSION.

WE WILL ALWAYS TRY TO REMOVE BARRIERS (MUSIC, DRESS, CHURCH LANGUAGE) THAT WOULD KEEP PEOPLE FROM CLEARLY SEEING JESUS AND WEIGHING HIS CLAIM ON THEIR LIFE.

WHO WE ARE

THE BRIDGE CHURCH IS A NEW CHURCH THAT LAUNCHED IN SEPTEMBER OF 2018. WE CURRENTLY HOLD SERVICES IN THE AMC 13 IN CHAMPAIGN, IL. FROM THE BEGINNING WE HAVE DESIRED TO BE A CHURCH OPEN TO ALL REGARDLESS OF PERSONAL HISTORY, FAMILY BACKGROUND, ETHNICITY, OR GENDER.
