Bridgetown Church is an American church located in Portland, Oregon. John Mark Comer founded Bridgetown Church in Portland with the simple intention of practicing the path of Jesus together.
The Bridgetown Church of Christ is an independent Christian church. Technically, they say that they are not a part of any “denomination”; instead, they are an autonomous local church.
Like every Christian community, the Bridgetown Church believe in the following:
The Bible: The authority of Scripture and our submission to it’s living counsel
(2) The Gospel: The good news that God is ever-pursuing his original Creation mandate of human flourishing and perfect relationship, culminating in Jesus’ sacrificial death and triumphant resurrection
(3) Salvation: The necessity of salvation by grace for restored relationship with God and one another.
(4). The Gospel Statement: The Gospel is the good news that God himself, the Creator, has come to rescue us from sin, and renew all things, in and through the work of Jesus Christ on our behalf, to establish his Kingdom, through his people, in the power of the Holy Spirit.
(5) The Apostle’s Creed
(6). The Nicene Creed
(7) The National Association of Evangelicals (N.A.E) Creed
(8). The Gospel Story
(9). The Creation
(10). The Fall: Humanity’s rebellion against God brought death into the world, and humanity was tainted. Our disobedience caused separation from God, the source of all life, and the result was death beginning with the first people and passing from them on to all other humans since.
(13). Women in Leadership
