Our Story

The Midtown Bridge Church officially launched in August 2007 at what once was the Fox Sports Grill in Atlantic Station out of a burden to reach the city of Atlanta. In January 2008 we moved into Regal Cinemas in Atlantic Station.   We are continuing to grow a church that looks like the city and like the kingdom of God. Our desire is not to simply grow one big church. We believe it will take a church planting movement to transform our city and are currently helping lay a foundation for other church plants.

 

Our Mission

A family pursuing the mission of Jesus.

We are a diverse family of broken people whose lives are being transformed by Jesus Christ. We exist to see people connected to Jesus and to follow Him in His mission to make disciples.

Our strategy is based upon the Great Commandment and Great Commission.

Upward: The greatest commandment can be summed up as loving the Lord our God correctly.  (Luke 10:27)

Inward: We are called to love one another. Jesus said that the world will know that He came by our love for one another. ( Luke 10:27; John 13:34-35)

Outward:  We believe a church should not be measured by its seating capacity but by its sending capacity. We are called to go make disciples.  (Matt. 28:18-20; Rom. 10:13-15; Acts 1:8)

 

Our Core Values

Prayer: As a church, we believe God wants His place of worship to be a house of prayer and his people to always be guided by prayer. (John 2:14-17; Philippians 4:6)

God’s Word: As a church, we are committed to preaching, teaching, leading and living by the divinely inspired and inerrant Word of God, the Bible. We believe the truths of God’s Word will make an eternal difference in the lives of the people of Atlanta and around the world. (2 Timothy 3:14-17; 2 Peter 1:21)

Gospel Centered: As a church, we believe that the Gospel is the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. The Gospel is the good news “that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” It stands at the core of all we do and shapes every area of our life. (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; John 3:16; John 14:6)

Authentic Community: As a church, we believe our two greatest responsibilities are to love God and to love others. We are committed to growing strong families and establishing discipling relationships with those in our body as well as with those outside our body. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:42)

Multiplication: As a church, it is our goal to develop an Acts 1:8 strategy that will impact the world by: 1) training believers to share the good news of Jesus Christ, 2) being involved with a church planting movement that will plant churches beginning in the United States and reaching around the world, and 3) partnering with missionaries worldwide for the purpose of resourcing and equipping them to fulfill the Great Commission. It is our goal to equip the body to become ministers by discovering and using their gifts and talents to serve Christ, the people of The Midtown Bridge Church, Atlanta, and the world. (Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:47)

Generosity: As a church, it is our goal to equip every member to respond to the needs around them. We are committed to using our gathered resources to do the same. We are called to steward the Lord’s resources in a way that meets the spiritual and physical needs or people. (Acts 2:44-47; 2 Corinthians 8:1-5)

Cultural Diversity: We believe a church should reflect its surrounding neighborhood. We are committed to connecting people to our community regardless of background or walk of life. We believe we are positioned to bear a stronger witness for Christ to the city through a healthy celebration of differences. (racial, educational, cultural, intergenerational, socio-economic). (Revelations 7:9; Colossians 3:11)
