Who We Are     Vision & Values

 


God The Father

We believe there is one God, who has always existed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All things that are were created by God for the express purpose of giving to Him the glory that He deserves. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 10:31)


Christ The Son

Jesus set aside the things He could do as God, and became a man. He lived a perfect life and died on a cross to pay the penalty for our sins. He rose from the grave three days later, conquering death to give us life. (Isaiah 53; Philippians 2:5-11)


The Holy Spirit

From the moment someone trusts in Jesus and asks Him to be in charge, the Holy Spirit makes a permanent home in that person, guaranteeing their salvation and beginning the process of forming them to be like Jesus. (Joel 2:28-3; Acts 1:8)


The Bible

The Bible is the Word of God, written by people who were chosen and inspired by God. We can trust the truth of the Bible completely. It is the only perfect guide for us to know how to live and what to believe. (Psalm 119; Hebrews 4:12)


Humanity

Our potential to glorify God was damaged when we decided not to follow Him and go our own way. The only way to be all that God created us to be is to return to Him by asking Jesus to both enter us and lead our lives. (Genesis 3; Matthew 4:17)


Eternal Life & Salvation

There's nothing we can do to earn our salvation. We simply need to ask God for forgiveness and to put our life fully in the hands of Jesus Christ. Eternal life begins the moment we trust Him and continues in heaven. (Psalm 103; John 17:3)


Faith & Practice

Bridgeway recognizes that it cannot dictate in areas where the Bible is silent. Rather, each believer is to be led in those areas by the Holy Spirit. We agree to disagree respectfully, and in all things love each other. (Deuteronomy 4:2; John 17:20-26)
