• Refugee work

    One of our continual prayers at LifeBridge is that God would allow us to see the world through His eyes -- moving us to action when we see a hurting or broken brother. Our work with the refugee community downtown has been a truly life-changing experience for us.

  • It's God's Money...

    At LifeBridge, we intentionally do without some of the things we'd enjoy for ourselves so that we are able to give more away. A full 50% of all offerings given are set aside for helping the poor, serving in our community, and starting new churches and schools. While that forces us to "live lean", it has opened the door for all sorts of amazing ministry that has truly transformed lives.

  • Jesus Sent Out 72

    Following Christ is risky, messy and sometimes dangerous. It means going into places you might not normally go, loving people you wouldn’t normally love and risking losing everything for the sake of Jesus Christ. This is the life that Jesus lived, and calls us to live.

  • Homeless ministry

    After years of working with the Montrose Street Reach downtown, our church has become much more active in recent days with a local ministry called Cy-Fair Helping Hands, which works with the homeless and "sheltered homeless" (living in hotels/motels) in the Cypress area. We look forward to a growing relationship with them as we serve God's people together

    Nepal Mission Work

    One of the truly exciting opportunities that God has entrusted to our church is the opportunity to have a very hands on involvment in a church planting venture in Nepal. Through ServLife International, we are actively partnering with around 50 indigenous church planters in Nepal to bring the Gospel to the most remote villages in that country. We also sent full time missionaries there to help establish a micro-finance program in some of the most impoverished villages in extremely remote areas of Nepal. This is literally "ends of the earth" ministry that we are humbled and privileged to be a part of.

Communion

Holy Communion (The Lord’s Supper) is another one of the beautiful gifts that God gives to his church. It connects us with the death of our Savior, Jesus, whose body was broken and blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins. On this, all Christians agree. But, again, you will find that different understanding and practices have arisen within Christianity.

Catholics believe in transubstantiation (bread and wine are transformed into the body and blood of Christ). Many Protestant Christians believe Jesus was merely using symbolic language.

At LifeBridge, we believe and teach that there is a healthy tension between these two views. When Jesus took the bread, he said “this is my body” and when he took the cup of wine he said, “this is my blood”. We believe that is true, and that in Holy Communion there is a real physical connection with Christ who died for us. And yet, it is clearly bread and wine that we are eating and drinking.

Like many things in faith, there is a mystery here that we don’t feel compelled to understand or resolve. We simply take Christ at his words, that this is the body and blood of Christ, broken and shed for us for the forgiveness of our sins. Participating in communion is not a “good work” done by us; it is not a “sacrificing of Christ” over and over again. It is pure grace, a gift of God to those who believe in him. Or as one person put it, it is “one beggar telling another where to get a bite to eat.” We come to communion as broken hurting sinners, and in this meal God points us to Jesus as the one who forgives our sin and fills our souls.
