About Bridgetown Church
Bridgetown Church is built around the idea of practicing the way of Jesus, together, in our city. We believe that to be an apprentice of Jesus of Nazareth is to order your life around three goals: be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did. Our dream is that as we live this way, our lives, our communities, and our city, will be transformed.
We believe the Church is not another sub-culture, but the making of a new humanity. It’s not a building or a weekend activity, but a people. We strive to live out the Gospel in our city throughout the week, then gather each weekend as a collection of Communities. We want to partner with God in his relentless pursuit to put the world to rights. Our prayer is as Jesus prayed, that God’s will would be done in Portland as it is in Heaven.
Statement of Belief
As a church, we place a high value on essential beliefs and doctrines as the anchors that hold us; primarily, the Authority of Scripture, the Gospel, and Salvation. We also value the non-essential beliefs and we seek to hold these with a posture of love and dignity. Learn more in our statement of belief.
