Welcome to our spot on sermonaudio.com | edit page
Our purpose at BridgeWay is to "bridge" the divide in the local church between tradition and modernity. Our Mission (by which we operate) and Vision (for which we strive), together with our core principles (on which we stand) are borne from the evangelical mandate taught in Acts 2:42.
Our 7-Point Mission is ...
1. EXALT Christ 2. EXPOSIT the Bible 3. EXAMINE the Sacraments 4. ESTEEM Church history 5. EDIFY believers 6. EXCEL a biblical worldview 7. EVANGELIZE the unsaved
Our 3-Point Pillars are ...
SCRIPTURE-FOCUSED Our standard bearer is sacred Scripture: We study its theology and history, uphold its eternal truths, and apply its instructions, exhortations, and precepts. We place a high premium on the expository preaching of God's Word and endeavor to exposit all 27 books of the New Testament in twenty years.
GOD-CENTERED Our primary focus is the adoration of God: We praise His splendor, exalt His name, worship His majesty, and bask in His presence through song, study, and submission. We believe the purpose of the church gathering, first and foremost, is to honor God for who He is and what He has done.
BELIEVER-ORIENTED Our intended audience is Christ-followers: We teach, preach, admonish, encourage, discipline, care for, disciple, and support our fellow saints in the covenant community of Jesus Christ. While evangelism is commanded in Scripture, and therefore expected of the Church, we believe that the local church gathering is specifically for believers
Our 7-Point Vision is ...
1. To be a church of PRAYER (growing in communion with Christ) 2. To be a church of FAITH (trusting unwavering on Christ) 3. To be a church of FAMILY (loving each other in the name of Christ) 4. To be a church of FELLOWSHIP (enjoying each other like Christ) 5. To be a church of SERVICE (giving to one another as unto Christ) 6. To be a church of STUDY (applying the wisdom that comes from Christ) 7. To be a church of OUTREACH (proclaiming salvation only in Christ)
