We exist to help people, all people, get closer to god.
BridgePoint Church exists to help people, all people, get closer to God. We do this by believing in Jesus, living His teachings, and becoming His people. We believe that through Jesus, we can become all that God desires us to be. No matter where we are, it's never too late to become the person we're meant to be.
We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God and has the authority to command our beliefs and actions (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
We believe that the God of the Bible is the only true God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:18)
A Personal God
We believe that God is willing and able to affect every aspect of our lives (Rom. 8:37-39)
We believe that all people are loved by God, reflect God’s glory, and are in need of salvation (John 3:16)
We believe that we can have a right relationship with God by His grace, through faith in Jesus Christ (Rom. 3:21-24)
We believe that the church is the body of Christ, and that Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are people who have trusted by faith in the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to the lost world. (2 Cor. 5:17-20)
The Reality of Sin
We believe that all that’s wrong in the world is sourced in sin, and can only be remedied through God’s redemptive work (Eph. 2:1-10)
We believe that God intends for us to live out our faith in interdependent community (Acts 2:42-47)
Identity in Christ
We believe that we find fulfillment and wholeness as an adopted child of God (Gal. 2:20)
We believe that Jesus is returning to judge all human beings and to establish God’s eternal kingdom (Acts 17:30-31)

BridgePoint Church was planted in 2006 with the vision to be a different church in Pinellas County, one that would reach a community that was uninterested in or detached from traditional church environments and styles. By 2010, BridgePoint grew to a church of 250 people and declared our commitment to the mission and our desire to be "all in" when we walked 3 miles from St. Pete High (a portable location at that time) to a new temporary home at the corner of Tyrone Boulevard and 9th Avenue North in St. Petersburg. Between 2010 and 2014, BridgePoint’s weekly services and programs for children, students, and adults made a profound impact in the community, experiencing significant growth by doubling in weekly attendance each year. In 2014, God provided an opportunity to purchase a permanent location in the Tyrone area. The church responded in faith and this acquisition provided the anchor location for our strategic vision of planting campuses in neighborhoods and cities throughout Pinellas County, as well as a broadcast hub for our online ministry. The Downtown St. Petersburg and Seminole Campuses launched in 2016 and 2017 respectively, both starting as portable environments. Once again, as only God can, both campuses transitioned to permanent buildings by 2017 and 2021.
BridgePoint Church continues to reach a diverse community of those new to faith and believers alike, and will continue to expand to additional neighborhoods and cities throughout Pinellas County and online through our digital ministries as God leads us. BridgePoint has both an exciting history and a bright future ahead, and our mission remains unchanged: to help people, all people, get closer to God by believing in Jesus, living his teachings, and becoming his people.
