who we are

Our purpose

Bridgeway Community Church exists

to glorify God by impassioning His people with a burden for

Everyday Commandment and

Everyday Commission living -- "EC2

 

OUR PRIORITIES

KNOWING GOD PERSONALLY - Because a personal relationship with God brings ultimate satisfaction and meaning, we seek to know, love and worship Him.

AUTHORITY OF THE WORD OF GOD - Because the Word of God alone is absolutely true, relevant, and unchanging, we explore it.

LIFE-ALTERING OBEDIENCE - Because maturity is more a way of life than a way with words, we teach for life-altering acts of obedience.

PEOPLE MATTER TO GOD - Because people matter to God, we're committed to reaching others for Christ locally, regionally, and globally.

SMALL GROUPS - Because God has created the body in such a way that we need each other, we encourage accountability through small groups.

SPIRITUAL GIFT STEWARDSHIP - Because ministry is a team play, we empower God's people to use their spiritual giftedness within the Body of Christ.

DISCIPLEMAKING - Because disciplemaking is the sole nonoptional command of the Great Commission, we train believers on the "How To's" of making healthy disciples of all individuals at their level of spiritual interest. 

EXCELLENCE - Because excellence honors God and inspires people, we pursue it.

RELEVANCE - Because God's eternal truths never change, we seek to minister in a culturally relevant way.

LEADERSHIP - Because a church can go no further than its leaders, we identify, groom and appoint them.
