What We Believe

"Those who stand for nothing fall for anything." - Alexander Hamilton

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Bridge City First based on the foundational truths taught in the bible.
All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

Scriptures Inspired By God

All Scripture was inspired by God & intended to be applied to our lives

One True God

There is one true God

Deity of Jesus

Jesus was, is and always will be God

The Fall

People disobeyed God and violated His laws,
creating a separation in the relationship between God and man


God created a way to bridge the gap and save mankind
from eternal suffering by sending His own Son, Jesus,
to take our place and our punishment

Ordinances of the Church

Two of the main ways we can connect
with what God has done in saving us are by
publicly declaring our commitment to follow Christ
through water baptism,
and by taking Holy Communion with other believers

Baptism In The Holy Spirit

God has given us His Holy Spirit to help us
know Him more intimately,
serve Him more effectively,
and share Him more boldly

Initial Physical Evidence of Baptism In The Holy Spirit

God helps us- and those around us- know that
His Holy Spirit is living and active in us
with outward evidence of an inward experience:
speaking in languages we have not previously known or learned


While we are instantly considered holy and sinless by God
the moment we commit our lives to Him,
living that out on a daily basis can be a challenge
which we have to work at with His help

The Church & Its Mission

God's Church exists to invite more people into God's family,
to create opportunities for believers to
celebrate and connect with God together,
and to help people grow in their relationship with God

The Ministry

God calls some people to commit to make
ministering to others their life's work

Divine Healing

God has, can, and still does heal people
physically, emotionally, and mentally

The Blessed Hope

There will be a definite point in time when God
removes His people from this earth and
takes them to Heaven to be with Him forever,
rescuing them out of the difficulties and craziness of this world, and rewarding them for their service to Him

The 1,000-Year Reign of Christ

There will come a time  when Jesus Christ reigns over this earth
in peace for 1,000 years,
and no one will be able to oppose Him

The Final Judgment

A definite time is coming in the future
when people who did not commit their lives to Christ
will stand before God to be judged
as to whether they are for God or against God

The New Heaven & New Earth

When it's all said and done in time as we know it,
God will start over and make everything new again
so that He can enjoy it with all of us whom He has made His family
