Statement of Faith

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of The Bridge Christian Fellowship based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

Inspiration of Scriptures

We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New
Testaments, by the Holy Spirit as originally given; they are the final authority for our faith and life.
[2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12]


We believe in one God revealed in three coequal, distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
[Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19-20; Ephesians 2:18]

Divinity and Humanity of Christ

 We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who by His incarnation and virgin birth took upon Himself the form of man and became the God-Man. In the one person of Christ, there are two natures, human and divine, each in its completeness and integrity. They are distinguishable but indivisible, so that He is fully man and fully God. He lived a sinless life and became the only sacrifice for the sins of the world.
[Ephesians 1:3-5; Romans 5:1-11; Acts 12:4; 1 Peter 1:18-19]


We believe that man in his natural state is a sinner, lost, undone, without hope and without God. [Ephesians 2:1-2; Romans 3:23]

Bodily Resurrection 

Bodily Resurrection: We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
[Luke 24:38-4, John 20:24-29, 1 Cor 15:1-19]


We believe that terms of salvation are repentance toward God for sin and a personal heart-felt faith in the Lord Jesus Christ,
which results in regeneration. This salvation is entirely by grace and not by works. [Ephesians 2:6-10; Romans 5:1; Acts 3:19-20]

Second Coming

We believe in the visible, bodily return of Christ to this earth to judge the world and to claim His Bride.
[1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 1:7]


Church: We believe that the Church is Christ’s spiritual body on earth today. It consists of born-again believers and has both universal
and local expressions. [Matthew 16:18; Acts 20:28]

Heaven and Hell

We believe in the doctrines of eternal punishment for the lost and eternal bliss and service for the saved; hell for
the unsaved and heaven for the saved.
[John 14:1-3; Revelation 20:11-15]


We believe that Satan is a fallen, created being who is the “god of this world.” He and his well-organized company of demons
are opposed to the Kingdom of God and work to defeat and destroy the believer. While his activity is real, Satan and his demon spirits
were defeated and overthrown by Christ’s victory at the cross.
[Luke 10:17-20; Colossians 2:13-15; Ephesians 6:10-18]

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third person of the Godhead who is active in the world today. The Spirit indwells and
seals the believer at new birth. We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a subsequent experience and is available to all Christians
to empower us to be witnesses. We believe in and encourage the use of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
 [John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4]


We believe that believer’s water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of the church and should be practiced
[Acts 2:38; Acts 2:44-47; Romans 6:3-10; 1 Corinthians 10:16-21]

Human Sexuality

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates man and woman as unique biological persons. These two distinct, complementary sexes together reflect the image and nature of
God. Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.
[Genesis 1:26-27]


We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only within the union of one genetic male and one genetic female.
[Genesis 2:18-25, Matthew 19:5-6, Mark 10:6-9, Romans 1:26-27, 1 Corinthians 6:9, 18; 7:2-5, Hebrews 13:4]

Sanctity of Life

We believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; and that we must have concern for the physical and spiritual needs of our fellowmen.
[Psalm 139:13, Isaiah 49:1, Jeremiah 1:5, Matthew 22:37-39, Romans 12:20-21, Galatians 6:10]
