Below are the archived series and messages from teachings at The Bridge. We pray these messages will bless you and encourage you in your walk with Jesus!
The Christian is not exempt from failures, trials, and suffering. Some of these things are a direct result of sin, while others come simply because we live in a fallen world. As believers in Jesus, we strive to be more like Him but there will be moments of doubt, sadness, or even pain. What do we do when we feel as though we're alone or abandoned, or worse yet, neglected by God? Join us in this series called "Down & Out." Bring your Bible, and invite a friend who doesn't yet know Jesus!
We have been given a command to go and make disciples, to share the Good News that salvation has come and His name is Jesus! But too often many of us are timid, nervous, or fear rejection. Sometimes we might even feel inadequate to share our faith. Listen to this message and learn how to have a simple conversation with unbelievers, in hopes that they would come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Everyone grows old, but not everyone grows up. God's goal for us is that we would become mature in our faith. The way He can bring out maturity from us, is by allowing us to endure trials and testing. Join us Fridays as we go through a series in the book of James called, "Grown Up." We'll be looking in the Bible at how we can grow to be mature believers in the faith.
Jesus says that we can know others by their fruit, or simply put, their actions will determine whether they truly belong to God. So, what kind of fruit do you bear? Is it sweet? Is it bitter? Can others see God working in your life? Check out this series on the Fruit of the Spirit!
One of the greatest differences between Jesus and the religious people of His day, was that He was willing to engage with the outcasts, the sinners, and those rejected by society. It's this same sort of compassion for the lost, that can enable us to step out of our comfort zone to be like Jesus, a Friend of sinners.

Joy is something you can experience because of your position in Christ, whereas happiness is determined by things that surround you. Join us on Friday nights as we dive into a series through the book of Philippians, learning to find joy in every circumstance.
What is the Bible? Who is God? Why is there suffering in the world? Come join us on Fridays as we examine the essentials of our faith, and dig deep into what every believer should know.
