IF YOU ARE NEW TO THE BE THE BRIDGE COMMUNITY, WELCOME.
THIS FIRST STEP IS A GREAT STEP OF FAITH!
Welcome to Be the Bridge! We are excited that you have taken this first step towards bridge building. Whether you are here out of curiosity or are compelled to take an active role in pursuing racial reconciliation in your own life, this site will help guide you through those first difficult steps toward reconciliation.
Be the Bridge exists solely to see the Church and its people become a credible witness for the glory of God. We desire to embody John 17, where Jesus prayed that we would be one as He and the Father are one. Our unity is a witness that points people to Christ. Racial division and segregation have hindered the prayer that Jesus prayed for all believers. Be the Bridge desires to create space and conversations that would begin to tear down racial barriers that have divided people – even God’s people. This is only the first step, and while these conversations may make us uncomfortable, they cause us to live out God’s love of truth, diversity, justice and reconciliation
