The Meaning of Membership
. . . and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near. Hebrews 10:24-25
Bridgeway Community Church is committed to having a powerful impact on the lives of people. It exists to thoroughly equip believers in Jesus Christ to develop a lifestyle of worshipping God, growing spiritually, serving others and sharing their faith; and to help others become believers in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord.
We believe that God's vehicle for accomplishing His purposes in the world today is the church. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy that the church is "the pillar and support of the truth" (1 Tim. 3:15).
