Mission and Core Values
A Relaxed Fit at...
THE BRIDGE NETWORK INTERNATIONAL
We believe everyone needs a place where they feel they belong. A place that fits you like a favorite pair of jeans. This place should be as welcoming as your favorite relaxing place. A place where your whole family is accepted, loved and respected, and where you can learn more about the God that created us.
The Bridge Network International is a non-denominational fellowship which is built upon the spiritual foundations and teachings of Jesus Christ. The open atmosphere is designed to allow the move of God to have His way, so come casual or come dressed up it doesn't matter...just come to give God some PRAISE!
The Bridge's pastoral core team and partner ministries are comprised of dynamic independent ministries, which support individuals and communities in the Chicagoland areas and other cities throughout this nation. The pastoral core ministry teams operate as the administrativeand guidance arm. Unlike traditional churches, the ministry does not have a“Senior Pastor” but a pastoral leadership team within the pastoral core teamthat operates in their spiritual giftings to support The Bridge as a whole. JesusChrist is the head and the core leadership team executes the necessaryleadership and overseer functions for day-to-day activities as the body.

“The Bridge” brings ministries together making a greater impact in theselast days. There are so many people dying and the Word of God must reach theplaces where others have over looked or place into the traditional mainstream.
Today, there are many formalized ministries that struggle to do the willof God but because of the lack of support, structure, and finances theystumble, fall short or just exhaust out. The time is now for ministries likethese to work together, pool resources, and gather strength from each other toaccomplish the tasks that God has commissioned each to do.
