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.
We believe in the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, and are committed to living out his teachings in the world. As a church family, we feel most closely aligned to the beliefs outlined in The Lausanne Covenant.
