I believe in the Divine Product: Inspiration of the Bible.

Inspiration establishes that the Bible is a divine product. In other words, Scripture is divinely inspired in that God actively worked through the process and had his hand in the outcome of what Holy Scripture would say. Inspired Scripture is simply written revelation.

I believe that the Bible is God’s word.

The doctrinal statement I affirms, “The Bible, including both the Old and New Testaments, is a divine revelation, the original autographs of which were verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit.” (2Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)

I believe Revelation is God’s self-disclosure.

It is God making Himself known to men. (1 Corinthians 2:11–16) God has revealed himself in a limited way in creation. (Psalm 19:1) But the Bible is a form of special revelation. The Bible is “special” revelation in the sense that it goes beyond what may be known about God through nature. (Romans 1:19, 20). It is divine in origin, since in the Bible God makes known things which otherwise could never be known. The Bible is unique because it is God’s revelation recorded in human language. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).

 According to 2 Timothy 3:16-17 the words of Scripture are “God breathed” or inspired. This implies that God is the source or origin of what is recorded in Scripture. God, through the Holy Spirit, used human authors to write what He revealed in the Bible. They were not mere copyists or transcribers. The Holy Spirit guided and controlled the writers of Scripture, who used their own vocabularies and styles but wrote only what the Holy Spirit intended. (2 Peter 1:21, 1 Corinthians 2:12–13). This is true only of the original manuscripts, not the copies or translations. Although the original manuscripts have been lost to us, God has preserved the biblical text to a remarkable degree.

I believe The Bible is verbally inspired.

This means that the words of the Bible, not just the ideas, were inspired. What is more, this is true of not just some, but all the words of the Bible. As a result, the Bible is free from error in what it says. I believe strongly in the factual, verbal, historical inerrancy of the Bible. That is, the Bible, in its original documents, is free from error in what it says about geography, history and science as well as in what it says about God. Its authority extends to all matters about which the Bible speaks. (Matthew 5:18; John 10:35)
 It is the supreme source of our knowledge of God and of the salvation provided through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. (John 5:39–47).  It is our indispensable resource for daily living. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 1 Peter 2:2).

I believe even though the Bible is God’s revelation, it must still be interpreted.

Interpretation has to do with our reception and understanding of that which God revealed and recorded. (John 16:13). Revelation is a divine act. Interpretation is a human responsibility. Divine inspiration guarantees the truthfulness of God’s word but not the accuracy of our interpretation. The Bible is infallible in all it affirms to be true and therefore absolutely reliable. I and you, however, may be fallible in our interpretation of the Bible.

“Living my life for Christ Jesus and declaring His glory among the nations’’. (Psalms 96:3)

MY CALLING BIBLE TEXT: 1Timothy 2: 7; 2 Timothy 1: 11

MY VISION: “My vision is to live out my faith and to make Christ Jesus Known as Lord and Savior to everyone by Word and by Life”.

MY MISSION: “My mission is to take the Living and life changing power of the WORD OF GOD in order to explain and expand the truth of God’s Holy Word to everyone wherever I’m, with deep conviction, passion, and great boldness and in the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit”.

SUMMARY: My mission is to fulfill God’s purpose for my life by partnering with the Local and Global Church in training, mentoring and sending disciples who make disciples and establish missional churches in their own communities to the glory of God.


My purpose in life is to do God’s Will, glorify Him and worships Him faithfully to the end. In addition, I’m committed of making true disciples who also make disciples for Christ Jesus. Will not relentlessly pursue this mission aggressively by four things:

1. Living the Love of God

2. Reaching out to the unreached.

3. Connecting with others and

4. Equipping them for Service of the Lord Jesus.

Just as my mission answers the question “What has God called me to do?” My practices answer the question, “How I’m going to get there?” Just as I have no right to invent my own vision and mission, I also have no right to invent my own practices. God has already clearly revealed to us in Scripture what are the practices by which I and you will accomplish His Mission. At The Bridge, I see four primary practices that I’m to give my live to: Loving, Reaching, Connecting and Equipping. These Core Practices emerge from the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.

I see these four practices as a grid to filter all my decisions through. If a proposed decision does not enable me to Love, Reach, and Connect or Equip others, I will not pursue it.

Loving – God and Others.

The Great Commandment, according to Jesus Christ is, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your Neighbour as yourself.” The most important thing we can do with our lives is to love God and the people he places in our world. Loving God will result in a life of devotion, obedience, holiness, worship, and prayer. Loving people will result in a life of sacrificial service, as we devote our time, money, possessions, and talents to helping others.

Reaching – The Lost and Broken.

The next three practices stem from the Great Commission. Jesus taught us to make disciples, but He also taught us how to do it. There are three participles in Mt.28:18-20 that reveal the process of making disciples – going, baptizing, and teaching. Each of those participles corresponds to one of our Practices. We reach the lost and broken people by going to them. This means that we intentionally demonstrate and declare the gospel. If we are going to be faithful to Jesus’ Mission, we must be concerned for those that are outside of our walls. The way we do that at the bridge is by intentionally strategizing and planning ways we will go to the lost and broken people together. We spend time regularly at our church gathering every evening equipping the members to be doing just that.

Connecting people into an authentic and meaningful community.

Jesus taught that the way we make disciples includes baptizing. Acts 2:41 says, “So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls.” On the day of Pentecost, those who were baptized were added to or connected to the church. So, baptizing corresponds with connecting. True Christian fellowship begins to take place when a sinner is born into God’s kingdom. Although we want to follow Christ’s example by spending time with people who don’t know Jesus yet, there is a special bond that true Christians have with one another. We experience that connectedness in a special way in our church gatherings for worship and in our weekday church gatherings for fellowship, teaching, prayer, and worship. If you’ve ever been part of a religious group where you felt you needed to act like someone you weren’t, or wear a religious mask, you know how destructive that is to true spiritual growth. We want to be a community in which we can be honest about our lives and our struggles, and allow the gospel to transform us from the inside out.

Equipping believers to be and make disciples.

Jesus told us that part of the process of making disciples is to teach them to observe all that He commands. He had just commanded them to make disciples. Thus, our work of disciple-making includes equipping or teaching them to make disciples, and we take that calling seriously. We try to make sure that everything we do provides an environment for growing as disciples and equipping disciples to make disciples. Discipleship happens best when disciples share life with each other. I have realized that we need to radically reorient our lives so that this life-on-life discipline can take place. At the same time, I seek to equip disciples through the expository teaching of the Bible during worship hours, equipping everyone every day to be effectively used by God to be different and make a difference in people living everywhere and anytime to the glory of God.

Let me sum up my practices like this:

I practice loving God and others, by reaching out to the lost and broken people, and connecting them into meaningful and authentic community, where I can equip them to be true disciple of Christ who makes disciples.


My goal is to be a faithful witness, both by word and life, to lead as many as I can to the saving knowledge of Christ Jesus, wherever I am. It’s my passion and trust to see this dream done and done well. 

 My goal is to be a faithful servant of Christ Jesus, to be a servant leader in the hands of our God, and to serve Christ Church faithfully to the end of my days and time. I have learned throughout the years that being successful is a good thing, but God requires us to be faithful to the end. Good success comes only from the Lord. (Joshua 1:8) 

My life goal is to complete my God-given mission on Earth. I’ve also realized that God isn’t interested in our skills, despite the fact that having several abilities is a benefit. God is interested in our availability and wants to utilize us for his own purposes and glory.

The essential scriptural verses that keep me focused are those that I believe the Holy Spirit planted in my heart when He called me into His ministry, as written by the Apostle Paul to his son Timothy. This is located in:

1 Timothy 1:12, “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;” 

1 Timothy 2:7, “Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, [and] lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity”. 

2 Timothy 1:11. “Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles”. 

It is the same Scripture text. I find strength and encouragement in every task I undertake for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom.

My Statement of Faith

The Holy Scriptures

I believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, are the inspired Word of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.

The One True God

I believe there is one God, Creator of all things, Who is infinitely perfect and eternally existent in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

The Deity of Lord Jesus Christ

I believe Jesus the Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, miracles and healings attest to His earthly ministry. He died on the cross as the sacrifice for our sins. He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.

The Fall of Man

I believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but man voluntarily sinned and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God.

The Salvation of Man

I believe the only means of our reconciliation to God is through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential for personal salvation and eternal spiritual life. The born-again believer is to separate from that which is evil and live a life of holiness unto God.

The True Church

I believe the true Church is composed of all those who are born again, as taught in the scriptures. Through this new birth, we are united together in the body of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church. Every local church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs.

The Ministry of the Holy Spirit

I believe the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. During this age He has been sent to indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service. The Holy Spirit bestows the spiritual gifts of: (1) Word of Wisdom, (2) Word of Knowledge, (3) Faith, (4) Gifts of Healings, (5) Working of Miracles, (6) Prophecy, (7) Discerning of Spirits, (8) Diverse Kinds of Tongues, (9) Interpretation of Tongues in and among believers on the earth since the Day of Pentecost and continuing until our Lord’s return.

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit

I believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is granted to all believers who ask for this experience. We believe this experience is distinct from and follows the new birth. Every believer can and should be filled with the Holy Spirit and speak in tongues. We believe the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance.

The Ordinances of the Church

I believe water baptism by immersion is a natural outward expression of the inward acceptance of the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ; however, it is not to be regarded as means of salvation. I believe the communion of the Lord’s Supper is done in remembrance of Him: His suffering and death, burial and resurrection, His present priestly ministry and His coming again. I believe the elements, bread and the fruit of the vine, are the symbols expressing our sharing in the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Mission of the Local Church

I believe the mission of the local church is to assemble together as a corporate body in which man may worship God, to be an agency of God for evangelizing the world, to be a storehouse wherein may be shared all things pertaining to life and godliness, to equip the saints for the work of the ministry, to edify the body of Christ, till we all come in the unity of the faith.

The Ministry

I believe Christ has set in the church Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, pastors and Teachers for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, to edify the body of Christ till we all come in the unity of the faith, wherein the mission of the local church may be accomplished.

Prosperity: Spirit, Soul and Body

I believe that without faith it is impossible to please God. The atonement provides salvation for the believer, healing for the soul, healing for the body. I am redeemed from the curse of the law which is poverty, sickness and death. My (Our) lives will be prosperous and healthy if we will walk in the light of this redemption with faith in God’s Word.

The Rapture of the Church

I believe in the personal, pre-millennial, imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ, and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord. I believe this happening, referred to as “the Rapture”, will deliver us from the Tribulation. We will be resurrected unto everlasting life and blessing in the presence of the Lord.

The Millennial Reign of Christ

I believe in the second coming of Christ with His saints to rule on the earth for a thousand years.

The Lake of Fire

I believe the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, and anyone whose name was not found written in the Book of Life, shall be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. This is the second death.

The New Heaven and the New Earth

I believe heaven and earth shall pass away and a new heaven and a new earth shall be created wherein God Himself will make His residence. Believers shall be with Him eternally.
