ABOUT BRIDGEWOOD CHURCH

Bridgewood Church is Biblically-based, Christ-focused, and led by the Holy Spirit. Our approach is decidedly to reach those who are in need of a personal relationship with God. While we welcome with open arms all who would worship with us, our clear desire is to connect people to Jesus. Our worship services are often a place where someone can connect with Jesus for the first time, but are also places where long-term believers in Jesus can encounter Him by His Holy Spirit. We believe that God has placed our church in the heart of Savage, and next to Prior Lake, Burnsville and Shakopee because God wants our church to make a difference for the Kingdom of God in our region. We believe we are called to see lives transformed and our region therefore, transformed.

OUR BELIEFS

The Trinity

We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1,26; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1,3; John 4:24; Acts 5:3,4; Romans 1:20; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Ephesians 4:5,6

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s written revelation to humanity and that it is the only inspired, infallible guide for salvation and life, without error in all it teaches. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21)

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power and glory. (Isaiah 53; Matthew 1:18-25; Matthew 20:28; Matthew 28:6; Luke 1:26-38; John 2:2; John 3:16; Acts 1:11; Romans 3:24-26; Romans 5:1; Romans 9:5; Romans 10:9; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4,14; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17; Titus 2:13)

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, giving them assurance of salvation, spiritual gifts, and empowering them to advance Christ’s Kingdom on this earth. (Ezekiel 36:27; Joel 2:28; John 14:12; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38; Romans 8:9,11,16; Romans 12:8-11; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; Ephesians 4:11-13; Galatians 4:6; 1 John 3:24; 1 John 4:13)

You and I

We believe that human beings were created in the image of God, but because of sin, were alienated from God. That alienation can be removed only by accepting through faith alone God’s gift of salvation, which was made possible by Christ’s death. (Genesis 1:26, 27; 3:1-24; John 3:3,5; John 1:12, 13; Romans 3:25; Romans 5:12-18; Ephesians 2:8,9; James 1:18; 1 John 1:8; 1 Peter 1:23)

OUR HISTORY

Bridgewood is a church plant started in 1998 by Wooddale Church of Eden Prairie and the Christian Reformed Church (CRC).

 

The CRC has its roots in the Reformation (1517 AD), when Martin Luther and John Calvin sought to reform the Catholic Church. From John Calvin came the Reformed Movement, which spread rapidly throughout Europe. In the British Isles, the Reformed Church became known as the Presbyterian Church. Early in American History, the Dutch settled a colony called New Amsterdam (now New York). They also settled in New England and the Mid-West and later the West Coast – forming what later became known as the Reformed Church of America. The CRC is a major daughter denomination of the Dutch Reformed roots. Thus, we are related historically to the Presbyterian and Reformed branches of churches.

 

Although the CRC started off as a Dutch immigrant church, it is now a very diverse and pluralistic body. There are black, Hispanic, Native American, and Oriental churches within the CRC. Approximately 1,040 churches, with 300,000 members, are in North America and there are thousands more worldwide.
