We see a growing, multi-cultural, multi-generational church, so infused with HOPE and passion in Jesus, that it influences every sphere of culture. We see a body so Kingdom-minded, that its people will count the cost and pay whatever the price to see transformation sweep across Alaska and beyond.
We see incredible, Christ-centered, hope-filled worship coming from this house, that influences the worship of the entire Body of Christ, writing and recording the sound of Bridge of Hope.
We see altars filled with people responding to the clear message of the gospel of Jesus Christ, under conviction of the Holy Spirit, as HOPE is restored to families. We see marriages restored, children returned, wounds healed, addictions broken, pasts redeemed, and destinies fulfilled.
We see a HOPE-restored people so dependent on the Holy Spirit with a "Here am I, send me" attitude in their hearts that cannot be stopped, allowing nothing to stand in God's way. We see a massive sending out into villages, cities, and nations, of people carrying the message of HOPE in Jesus, with love for Him and love for people.
We see a church with its head being Jesus, whose help is the Holy Spirit, committed to the Great Commission. A church that will raise, train, equip, empower and send a HOPE filled generation into all the earth.
Bridge of Hope will not simply be our name, it is who we are.
There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent–one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God's Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God's kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man."
We are saved by God's grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit, convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live holy and minister supernaturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses.
The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy–sin, lies, sickness and torment.
The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave His church the ordinances of baptism and communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God's love, and discipling the nations–baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.
In the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride–His church. Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.
