We Are the Body of Christ Called to be Jesus, Building Bridges of Life and Hope, Where We Live, Work, and Play.
Who We Are
We were launched as Bridge Church Fredericksburg in September of 2019 by Max Lucado and the team of Oak Hills Church, San Antonio, Texas.
The Bridge, formerly OHC Fredericksburg, was a satellite campus of Oak Hills serving the greater Fredericksburg area for our first 10 years. Max approached Jimmy Pruitt about launching the campus as an independent church and invited Jimmy to be the lead pastor.
The rest is history and it is evident in the growth, vibrancy, and health of BCF that this was not just a good idea, but a God idea.
We seek to promote unity in the Body of Christ.
Grace, Truth and Faith
We offer grace, stand for the truth, and live by faith.
We embrace the family as the core teaching and discipling center.
We invite all people to belong to Christ’s community.
Every Believer a Minister
We view every believer as a minister.
We seek God in all decisions through prayer.
We organize our efforts around community.
At BCF we value the presence of the Lord and our desire is to worship God in Spirit and Truth.
Statement of Faith
At Bridge Church we believe…
a) There is one God, eternally existing in three persons. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Rom. 8; Eph. 1:13-14)
b) God, out of love for his children, sent his son Jesus Christ to die for our sins, and rise from the dead. (I Cor. 15:1-8)
c) The Bible is the inspired word of God and is the final authority in life and doctrine. (2 Tim. 3:16)
d) Salvation is a free gift of God. The death of Christ on the cross is the only sufficient payment for our sins. All have sinned, but all can be saved. This salvation is available for any who put their trust in Christ as Savior. (Rom. 3:23, Rom. 6:23, John 3:16)
e) Those trusting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith and be baptized. (Rom. 10:9; Acts 2:38)
f) The Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue the task of reaching the lost and discipling the saved, helping them become fully devoted followers of Christ. (Eph. 4:1-16)
g) Christ will one day return and reign forever. (1 Thess. 4:13-18)
STATEMENT ON MARRIAGE AND SEXUALITY
We believe that the Bible defines “marriage” as one man, one woman. (Mark 10:6-9). We further believe that intimate sexual activity is a sacred gift of God and intended to be celebrated only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Corinthians 6:18; 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4).
