"To reach out to people locally, and throughout the world sharing Christ's message of compassion in spirit and action!"

We exist to Build a Great City for all People through Personal Conversion,
Community Formation, and Social Justice.

Bridlewood is a community of city-loving, city-serving city dwellers sent to be the repairers of broken walls and restorers of streets with dwellings. We welcome and serve all people, especially the foreigners (people who are not like us), the aliens (people who are marginalized) and the eunuchs (people who have different family patterns). We are sent to free the oppressed, to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and house the homeless.  (Isaiah's vision fulfilled in Jesus)

We seek to fulfill this mission through:

1) Personal Conversion

We are not by nature, sacrificial, hospitable and welcoming to the strangers among us. Without personal encounter and conversion, we will not be able to fulfill our mandate as city dwellers. The personal conversion comes through the encounter with the Glory and beauty of God in Worship, Knowledge of God’s will through His Word, and ongoing process of dependence of Jesus Christ who is our Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Prince of Peace and Everlasting Father.

2) Community Formation

WE ARE WITNESSES – Witnesses of the covenant, witnesses of the blessings, witnesses of the promises of God for all creation. We are witnesses of the Heavenly community on earth with alternate values  in regards to Sex, Family, Money and Power.   We are witnesses for our city by living simply, not enslaved by our possessions or to work that destroys life.  We are called to be a Multi-Ethnic, Multi-Class and Multi-Generational community.

3) Social Justice

God is compassionate and merciful to the poor, the hungry and the oppressed. We are created and sent to be advocates for the poor, to challenge and transform social structures that perpetuate poverty and encourage hopelessness, and to live charitably, sharing our resources sacrificially with those who suffer. We believe that mercy is not an option or an addition to our faith, but rather, essential to who we are, and how we are called to live in the city.
