About The Bridge Fellowship


We believe that nobody is too far to have a relationship with Jesus and here at The Bridge Fellowship we pursue authenticity. We are real, we are changed, and we are meant for community. We were made for relationships and we want nothing more than for you to be a part of our TBF family. 


We believe we are called to be witnesses of Jesus by sharing our story with others. When God saves us, we desire to become more like Him. We strongly commit ourselves to the teachings of God’s Word.  

We believe that discipleship includes replication and that we are to replicate ourselves with our faith, talents, passions, and gifts. A disciple is one who: worships Jesus, is being changed by Jesus, obeys Jesus, and teaches others to do the same. 


We believe that we are to use our gifts and passions to serve God and serve others through: serving in the church, serving the next generation, and serving through missions.
