WE ARE BRIDGETOWN
We exist to reach people where they are and to connect them to everything God has for their life in Jesus.
We desire to be a people who are full of the awe of God that leads to action. We believe we have been called to step out and share the hope that is in us with a dying world. Often times we can find ourselves ‘waiting on the Lord’ when He has already so boldly commanded us go, or expending energy doubting that we are ready or even capable of stepping out into the discomforts of our walk that appear impossible but only restrain all that He intends to do through us if we would only step out and obey.
We are a people bound by faith. Our faith is not aimless, it’s not shooting in the dark, nor is it wildly pursuing something or someone without direction wishing for the best result.
Our faith is the act of complete trust in a perfect Savior, lived out in response to His complete love for this broken world. We desire to step faithfully in the footsteps of Christ Jesus. We desire to reach out to anyone and everyone, declaring His truth unashamedly, exhibiting His love regularly and abiding in Him obediently.
We are a people
We are a people whose desire is to do all things with excellency as one body, with one accord, for the glory of One Perfect Person found in Christ Jesus.
We are steered by truth and a pulse rooted in love that has joyfully bonded us in unity toward good works, led by His Spirit to work together, to pray together, to seek together, to worship together and to step together as faithful people of God as we cling to the living hope we have within us with the purpose of sharing it with Monrovia and beyond.
