In Portland as it is in Heaven. All teachings are available to stream and download at bridgetown.church.
Be With Jesus. Become Like Jesus. Do What Jesus Did.
From "Vision Series 2021." A brief look at the vision and future of Bridgetown Church, and leaning into the idea of first century discipleship that Jesus called us to.
Part 8: Preaching a Disruptive Gospel
From the series "Preaching The Gospel."
Part 7: Live in a Way That Begs the Question
From the series "Preaching The Gospel." Our fifth and final best practice for preaching the gospel is to simply bear witness: to live in a way that begs the question. Most of “evangelism” in the early church was simply people living a radically different and deeply good life, and scores of people being drawn into the beauty of the gospel. Millions found Jesus so compelling they were willing to die for him. Do we?
Part 6: Doing The Stuff
From the series "Preaching The Gospel." In John, Jesus talks about us accomplishing even greater works than He did. But demonstrating the Kingdom of God is often more ordinary, and every day, than we expect.
Part 5: Methods & Context
From the series "Preaching The Gospel." When our methods are old and do not meet the current cultural context, how do we effectively preach the Gospel in Portland?
Part 4: Recognizing Where God is Already Working and Joining In
From the series "Preaching The Gospel." Hesitation toward evangelism is rooted in the fallacy, “God shows up when I show up,” which couldn’t be further from the truth. In this week’s teaching, we learn how to join the pursuing work of God in the lives of the lost.
This podcast is so much more than a message. To me and my family, who’s church has been closed and in chaos since covid’s outbreak, we have been strengthened by Bridgetown's messages over and over again.
To listen to a podcast, where you feel God’s presence from such a distance, is incredible. It is evident that John Mark and his leadership team have made a conscious effort not not to care for their own church family, but to encourage, strengthen and love on people regardless of place.
It is a privilege and honour to listen weekly to these messages. Thank yo Bridgetown from the bottom of my heart for the gift you give me weekly, all the way over here in New Brunswick Canada.
Love the vision that speed from every piece of content that comes from Bridgetown. So clearly after understanding the heart of the father in our modern lives
I love how this church brings wisdom and knowledge from secular sources, along with biblical teachings and theologians. I think even if a person doesn’t follow the way of Jesus, but their words of wisdom align with Gods heart, we should take it. I believe we should learn anything we can to make us more like Jesus, and Bridgetown church does that. Thanks for the inspiring teaching!
