Core Values

TO BRING

We are called TO BRING the Gospel which is the good news of Jesus Christ.

We are unashamed of the Gospel and believe that our lives lived authentically will show the love of Christ and the work of Christ in our lives to our community and beyond. (Romans 1:16-17) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

We believe that God can do the impossible and that is accomplished through the Gospel. (Acts 4:12) Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. 

TO BUILD

We are called TO BUILD warriors for the cause of Christ.

We desire to bridge the gap between salvation and growth. We want to empower you to step into your purpose. God has planned good works for your life that only you can complete. (Ephesians 2:10) For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

We believe that through relentless service to others, we can build a community that will change lives one person at a time. We will intentionally seek opportunities to serve. (Matthew 9:36) But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.

We desire to make disciples and build leaders. (Matthew 28:19-20) And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

We will pursue where others will retreat. (2 Timothy 1:7) For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

TO BE

We are called TO BE who God has called us to be according to His will and purpose.

At Bridge City Church we are not perfect, we are not a style, we are not young, we are not old, we are not traditional, and we are not contemporary. We are a people purchased by the sacrifice of Jesus and our diversity in life experience, preferences, and gifting creates unity! (Ephesians 2:19-22) Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

We can adapt according to our season and times, so we may remain effective in reaching others. (1 Corinthians 9:22) to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

We will live authentic and genuine lives with our time, talents, and gifts. Generosity is a lifestyle of worship and worship produces joy. (Colossians 3:16-17) Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
