Who We Are
“United by Christ… to one-another… for mission”
Bridge Community Church (BCC) is a growing number of individuals committed to journeying together as we follow Christ in a world of paradox- a world filled simultaneously with tears of joy & sadness, laughter & grief, love & pain. As we journey together, our commitment is to following Jesus with increasing dependency on the grace of the gospel (our Communion)… following Jesus with deepening intimacy with others (our Community)… and following Jesus with a growing passion for loving and blessing others (our Co-mission)! It is a journey no one should travel alone.
We would love to have you join us!
Our Philosophy of Ministry
What do we mean by gospel-centered? We mean that everything we are… everything we do… everything we envision flows from, is grounded in and points to the truth that “God made [Christ] who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in [Christ] we might become the righteousness of God” (II Corinthians 5:21). That truth is the foundation and cornerstone of the church upon which we not only build, but also stake our lives. It is the truth that frees us to live not only as forgiven, but also as new creations for the sake of others. And it is the truth that gives us the confidence and security to understand what it looks like to “cheer up because you are a lot worse than you think, but in Christ you are more loved than you ever dared imagine”!
How will we seek to stay ‘gospel-centered’?

Why Easton and Why Now?
Easton is a rich and beautiful mosaic of people, places and culture! On any given day within the 4 square miles you may meet a number of the 2,500 students who attend Lafayette College. In the downtown business district you may run into any number of the city’s avant-garde who are committed to the arts, sexual diversity and progressive thinking, all who desire to be a part of Easton’s urban renaissance (a nationwide trend). As you explore other parts of Easton you will experience not only diverse worldviews, but also diverse people. Throughout the small neighborhoods that make up Easton you will find a large community of African-Americans and Latinos. Interspersed throughout you will find smaller communities of Asians, Eastern Europeans and even Native Americans. (It is also worth noting that Easton has the largest number of Lebanese from one community in Lebanon than any other city in the United States.) Once you begin your way around the city, you will sense just how small the pieces of Easton’s mosaic truly are. Within blocks of one another, often from one block to the next, you will have low-income housing and historic buildings, single parents and traditional families, institutional facilities and gentrified blocks, gang activity and small businesses, architecture and industry. This is both the charm and challenge of Easton’s mosaic.
