Everyone Believes Something
We all believe something even if we don’t think about it that much. The Bridge is a chance to explore what true Christianity is all about. It’s a chance to interact, ask questions and share your point of view without any pressure.
How the Course Works
The Bridge Course is a 10 week introduction to Christianity which is designed to encourage conversation and interaction in a non-pressured, “questions are welcome” environment. The Bridge provides a safe space where you can share what you believe or just sit back and listen. No one will ever call on you. It’s a comfortable environment where you can find answers to some of life’s biggest questions, enjoy community with others and find meaning in life. To help you on this journey, each in-person session is split up into three parts.
Food has a way of bringing us together and creating good conversation. It’s no different at Bridge. We start with food because we love to eat and because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other. Every week there is a different meal served and some of the favorites include:
The talks are designed to raise important questions and inspire conversation. Generally thirty minutes long, they seek to answer important questions about life and God such as:
The discussion is probably the most important part of the Bridge. It’s a chance to interact with the talk and share your perspective in a safe environment. You can ask whatever question you like or not say a word. No one will ever call on you.
Conversations are usually held with other people that are your age. Group 1 is for high school students and group 10 is for seniors.
The Bridge Course has had a remarkable impact on thousands of individuals across the world, with its message of hope to a world that is dark. It has provided an opportunity for people from all fifty states in America, as well as over 150 countries around the globe, to come together and learn about Jesus Christ and the difference he can make in our lives. The course has been carefully crafted with content that is designed for people who are not Christians or not sure what they believe. It is also applicable and relevant for those of diverse backgrounds and cultures.
The Bridge Course offers a unique combination of live streaming video, interactive questions, and self-paced options that are designed to bring the message of Jesus Christ to life. The content is accessible to everyone, no matter their background. This allows people from all walks of life to engage in meaningful conversations about the message of the Bible. It also provides a safe space where people can share their perspectives and gain insights from others.
Bridge continues to hold courses in rehab centers, retirement communities, high schools, colleges, women’s shelters, neighborhoods, and work places. Since making the course available online, people from around the world have watched the course in their native language. God has used the Bridge Course to help many people from many different backgrounds understand the free gift of salvation and forgiveness that comes to us through the death of Jesus Christ in our place on the cross. We thank God for the thousands of lives that have been changed.
