our heartbeat

At Bridges, our heartbeat, our purpose, and our greatest desire is to glorify God. Therefore, we seek His glory in our church, our community, and our world. Internally, we do this through worship and the ministry of His word. Externally, we accomplish this by fulfilling our vision of "Equipping World Changers." It is our desire to raise up, equip, and send God's people into their world as His representatives, bringing Him glory every day through their thoughts, words, and deeds.

Sermon series

At Bridges, we value and rely on the Word of God. Therefore, each Sunday we seek to bring a message that is Biblical, focused on the text of Scripture, relevant, and applicable to our daily lives. Ultimately, we want to preach the word in such a way that God is glorified and those who listen with open hearts are "equipped for every good work." (2 Tim 3:17)

Currently were are going through the book of Romans. Romans has been called "the greatest letter ever written."  In this letter the Apostle Paul paints an amazing picture of God's righteousness revealed through the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He answers the question how can a holy and righteous God be in relationship with a sinful people.  Join us on this journey to discover not only how we can be in relationship with God but how being in relationship with God transforms our lives.

We are a stephen ministry church

Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times. A Stephen Minister usually provides care to one person at a time, meeting with that person once a week for about an hour. Twice a month, Stephen Ministers gather with their Stephen Leaders for supervision and continuing education.

Tom and Denise Allen


Southern California Regional Director

In 1987 Tom and Denise left jobs in the marketplace to devote themselves as campus ministers to developing young Christian leaders and building witnessing communities of students on college campuses in Southern California.   Today Tom serves as the Regional Director for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in Southern California and Denise teaches in a local elementary school near UCR.    The universities and colleges in Southern California are a vibrant and diverse mission field of  1.7 million students and thousands of faculty on 135  campuses ranging from Imperial Valley College near our southern border with a dynamic student body that is 90% Hispanic to world class four year universities like UCLA which enrolls over 45,000 students.     InterVarsity fellowships are reaching more students, seeing more decisions for Christ and planting new fellowships on campuses than at any other time in InterVarsity’s 70 year history.   This year on colleges in Southern California we have seen an average of 23 students making decisions for Christ during each week of the school year.   In the 53 InterVarsity chapters across the regions 42% of the students regularly involved are seekers who do not consider themselves Christians.      It is a season of  missional harvest and spiritual transformation.     We are grateful for Bridges Church and its longstanding partnership.   Please join us in prayer for revival at colleges and universities by going to
