We encourage partnership to help develop a team of family workers who have a common vision with like-minded basic beliefs. While all followers of Christ are members of the universal body of Christ, they should also be committed to a local congregation. The Bible teaches clearly that if two are going to walk together, there must be an underlying agreement (Amos 3:3). If people are going to come into a covenant relationship that is genuine and meaningful there must be a strong foundation for that relationship to be built upon. Partnership is a public declaration of that covenant relationship based on shared vision, beliefs, practices and trust.
Does everyone have to become a partner to attend?
Everyone is invited and welcome to attend Bridges Community Church! Partnership is not a requirement. However, there are certain areas of ministry and responsibilities that do require membership.
