We exist to share the life-changing love of Jesus Christ with lost and hurting people.

Regardless of your background or economic status….life can be heavy sometimes. Here at The Bridge Fellowship, it is our dream to become a safe place for people work out the issues in their lives in light of what God teaches through the bible. We don’t want to just “play church”. We desire to tackle real life struggles and offer biblical truths that help people live better lives with Jesus Christ. No matter who you are or what your going through, you are welcome here at The Bridge.

In the fall of 2013, our Lead Pastor, Steve Farris was busy coaching high school football in Fort Worth, Texas when God began to stir in his heart the call to start a new church. Our friend Chuck Angel at The Foundry Church in Castle Rock, Colorado invited Steve to attend a church planting conference in Colorado Springs that October and that changed everything. Steve realized the need for new churches along the Front Range, specifically Colorado Springs.

After months of prayer and research, the Farris family along with Brandon Stokes relocated to Northwest Arkansas where Steve served on staff at Cross Church as one of the Young Adult Pastors. Brandon and Steve both completed a one-year church-planting residency through the Cross Church School of Ministry.

During the Summer of 2015, our entire team moved to Colorado Springs permanently where we are currently carrying out the mission God has called us to which is to share the life-changing love of Jesus Christ with lost and hurting people. Come check us out on Sundays at 10:00 am at 7094 Cottonwood Tree Drive, Peyton CO, 80927.

What We Believe

God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

| Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22 | Psalm 90:2 | Matthew 28:19 | 1 Peter 1:2 | 2 Corinthians 13:14 |

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

| Matthew 1:22, 23 | Isaiah 9:6 | John 1:1-5, 14:10-30 | Hebrews 4:14, 15 | 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4 | Romans 1:3, 4 | Acts 1:9-11 | 1 Timothy 6:14, 15 | Titus 2:13 |

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under his control daily.

| 2 Corinthians 3:17 | John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17 | Acts 1:8 | 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16 | Ephesians 1:13 | Galatians 5:25 | Ephesians 5:1 |

Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.

| Genesis 1:27 | Psalm 8:3-6 | Isaiah 53:6a | Romans 3:23 | Isaiah 59:1, 2 |

The Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

| 2 Timothy 3:16 | 2 Peter 1:20, 21 | 2 Timothy 1:13 | Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6 | Proverbs 30:5 |

Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.

| John 3:16 | 1 John 2:25 | 1 John 5:11-13 | Romans 6:23 | Revelation 20:15 | Matthew 25:31-46 |

Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works – only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

| Romans 6:23 | Ephesians 2:8, 9 | John 14:6, 1:12 | Titus 3:5 | Galatians 3:26 | Romans 5:1 |

Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.

| John 10:29 | 2 Timothy 1:12 | Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14 | 1 Peter 1:3-5 |

Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ.

| Colossians 2:12 | Acts 2:41 | Ephesians 2: 8-9 | Matthew 28:19-20 |

Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Christ to remember his sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. The elements of bread and wine or juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross.

| Matthew 26:26-30 | Mark 14:22-26 | Luke 22:19,20 | 1 Corinthians 11:23-29 |
