Bridgeway began as a dream in the mind of David Anderson, when he was still a teenager. Through his studies at Moody Bible Institute and his experiences at Willow Creek Community Church, that dream became a calling. Assembling a team of young visionaries, David and his co-laborers embarked on a journey to start a multi-cultural church. A church unlike any they had ever experienced. One of family and community. Creativity and imagination. Truth and integrity. A celebration of all colors and cultures doing life together and worshipping God-together!
On Easter morning, 1992, the adventure began. Stepping out in faith, David and his team began building a church. Through meeting in peoples’ homes, singing without instruments, and sharing the Gospel with co-workers, the vision of Bridgeway started to spread. God was moving in this little church and lives were being changed.
Today over 3000 people call Bridgeway Community Church their home. Bridgeway offers 3 Sunday services, as well as an extensive list of ministries that reach in to the body of Christ and out to the community. The cultural and racial blend has raised interest from leaders around the world as Bridgeway successfully fulfills our vision: “To become a multicultural body of fully devoted followers of Christ, moving forward in unity and love, to reach our community, our culture, and our world for Jesus Christ.”
Watching what God has done in and through this place has been spectacular and we are on the verge of even more. The church is growing at a tremendous rate and so is the passion to bring people into the kingdom of God.
…there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language… They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” (Revelation 7:9-10 NIV)
