Church Description

Founded in 2006, BridgePoint is a growing and dynamic multi-site church with a great story and promising future. BridgePoint exists to help people – ALL PEOPLE – get closer to GOD. At BridgePoint there is an obvious desire to settle for nothing less than biblical, authentic and relevant teaching and an excellent and edgy worship experience. Attenders are encouraged to come as they are, with a casual atmosphere and irresistible environments for kids, worship, and community connections.

Landing on Outreach Magazine’s Top 100 Fastest Growing Churches, BridgePoint is seeing almost 3000 walking in their doors each week and experiencing growth at all three of their campus locations.
