Bridge Point Fellowship began on March 28, 2004 as Church on the Rock Bridge City. We started as a church plant in conjunction with the local Church on the Rock churches. After almost 9 years as Church on the Rock Bridge City, our name was changed to Bridge Point Fellowship. Changing a church’s name can seem odd, and has the potential to be interpreted in many different ways. The change came after much prayer and consideration.
One main reason, although we initially shared the name Church on the Rock, we were not officially affiliated with Church on the Rock International.Keeping the name,but not being affiliated with the organization brought up many questions of what made us a “Church on the Rock” church.
We have been a part of the “Association of Related Churches” (ARC) for several years. Our church government and by-laws are more of a reflection of the ARC churches. Our methods, the way we do church and try to grow a community of believers, is very similar to ARC churches. One church’s method is not necessarily better than another, nor is one method right and another one’s wrong. It is important to emphasize that our goals are the same: seeing people born again, discipled and growing as a believer. We still hold to the same doctrines we always have. We have not changed anything at the church, our beliefs, the staff, or the services. It is the same church, just a new name.
Our goal at Bridge Point is simply this: to help people move along the path of God’s calling for their life. Growing in worship, discipleship, prayer, and service. Holding on to the Word of God as our source of truth, and sharing the message of Jesus with others.
