Mission & Vision

Go therefore and make disciples...

The Mission

We exist to expand God’s Kingdom in the city of Austin and beyond, by glorifying God, building community, and reproducing disciples with the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Glorifying God
This is what we are called to do as Christians.  That we begin to glorify God as the ultimate, absolute being that is the only one who is worthy of our whole entire self. We believe that the center of glorifying God is through the saturation of the gospel in our whole lives.

To be connected with God is to let the gospel transform every aspect of our lives through the work of the Holy Spirit.  The Spirit of God reveals God’s Word to us, equips to be made more in the image of Christ, and empowers us with the gifts of the Spirit to encourage the body and reach the lost.  Through the work of the Spirit we are able to connect to God and one another walking in the great commandment (Mar. 12:28-34). (Eph. 1:13, Jn. 16:7, 1 Cor. 12 & 14)

Through the Gospel we as His children not only know God but we are known by Him. (1 Cor. 8:3. Gal. 4:9). That God has made us His own through the sacrifice of His Son and through the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to worship Him freely.  Through that we are as church strive to be known by Him through our worship, community groups, and discipleship making.

Everything centers on the person and central work of Jesus Christ.  That God reconciled us to Himself through Christ (2 Cor. 5:18).  All Scripture points to and highlights the ministry of Jesus Christ.  We try to make our ministry focused on the centrality of the reconciliation work of the Gospel for our entire beings.
(Rom. 11:36, 2 Cor. 5:19, Matt. 5:9)
Building Community
In the great commandment found in Mark 12:28-34, Jesus command for His disciples is to love God and love neighbor.  Growth is not done in isolation but we believe God’s intention for our growth is seen in community with another through Sunday Gatherings, Community groups, Missional communities and personal discipleship (Acts 2:42-47).

Our mission is that our church feel connected with one another through the grace we receive through Jesus.  That like Acts 2 we strive for a community that devotes themselves to the teaching of the Word, fellowship with one another, the breaking of bread, and prayer and through these acts we would feel more connected with one another and God.
(Acts 2:42)

We as a church strive for everyone to be known by God and known by community.  We strive to be a community that you feel welcomed, seen, heard and loved.  We believe that every man, woman and child is one that Jesus longs for and want the opportunity for everyone to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We believe our church to be a place for reconciliation.  That we strive as a church to foreshadow our true home by being a diverse community (Rev. 7:9).  We see that the most segregated time in a week is Sunday mornings and we want to create a place of worship that models what heaven will look like in the gathering of all tribes, peoples, and languages.
Reproducing Disciples
Jesus’ Great Commission is to "Go therefore make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit..."  Jesus did not commission us to the saved but to go out into the world.  That as a church because we are connected, known, reconciled with God and one another we now have a mission to go and reproduce disciples.  That we become the BRIDGE for the world and the gospel (Mat. 28:16-20).
Therefore Connect

We believe in our members to live missionally.  That we use our gifts, talents and treasures to bridge the unreached by intentionally investing in a location and sharing the gospel through action and words.  We believe that we will reach the city through the Domain where the nations are gathered.  The Domain being a destination spot for people all around Austin, we feel the unique calling of reaching the lost by connecting with our presence modeling the love of Jesus.
Therefore Know

We want our members to know the city of Austin.  The church is not meant to be a blessing for itself but to be a blessing for the city.  That the glory of God is known through how we step into darkness.
Therefore Reconcile
We strive to partner with non-profits to push-back darkness and be a light for the city.  Our hope is that if our church were to cease to exist that the city of Austin would be missing a vital part of the city.  That we would be ambassadors of Christ through partnerships, planting churches, and living missionally.

The Vision

Austin Bridge is a church dedicated to fulfilling the great commission by going out and making disciples of all nations. We fully believe that in order to fulfill this, our focus needs to be sharing the gospel in the Domain and making disciples that reproduce disciples. We fully believe that there is nothing more satisfying than knowing Jesus, and in knowing Him, we will make Him known. We believe that since the Domain is a destination spot within the city, that planting the gospel here will ripple out to all of Austin and beyond.
