When asked to describe LifeBridge, the image that best seems to fit is that of a MASH tent. This mindset results in a different type of experience than you will find in most American churches. There is less time, energy and money spent on taking care of us and a much greater emphasis on reaching out to a lost and hurting world.
- Mobile – God has called us to do more than invite people to come to church, he has challenged us to be out in the world – on the front lines of whatever God is doing in our community, our city and our world.
- Army – We believe that church should feel much less like a social club and more like a military unit, where the people of God are in training to make a real and tangible difference in the lives of those around them.
- Surgical – Physical poverty. Relationship problems. Loneliness. Spiritual crisis. Every day God allows our paths to cross with hurting people. Our calling is to intervene in their life and offer them the healing that comes through Jesus Christ.
- Hospital – The goal of a hospital is not to grow as large as possible. It is to heal and then release. For us, too, the primary goal is not to get as many people into church on Sunday morning as we can. Instead, our goal is to intervene in the lives of the hurting, bring the healing of Christ into their situation, and then send them back out in the name of Jesus Christ to rescue more hurting people.
