In March 2005, Pastor Phil and Sharra Wilson had a simple dream to plant a church that would love people in every stage of life, no matter where they had been or who they were. With the help of several families in Mt. Juliet, who had committed to seeing this dream become a reality, The Bridge Fellowship began on September 18, 2005 at West Wilson Middle School in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. From the beginning, The Bridge Fellowship has focused on reaching those that do not know Christ and building relationships through life groups. We continued to see growth and were able to build on Lebanon Road where we opened our current building in September 2011.
The Bridge Fellowship has seen over 2,500 individuals be baptized and ministers to over 1,000 people on a weekly basis.
We believe that nobody is too far to have a relationship with Jesus and here at The Bridge Fellowship we pursue authenticity. We are real, we are changed, and we are meant for community. We were made for relationships and we want nothing more than for you to be a part of our TBF family.
We believe we are called to be witnesses of Jesus by sharing our story with others. When God saves us, we desire to become more like Him. We strongly commit ourselves to the teachings of God’s Word.
We believe that discipleship includes replication and that we are to replicate ourselves with our faith, talents, passions, and gifts. A disciple is one who: worships Jesus, is being changed by Jesus, obeys Jesus, and teaches others to do the same.
We believe that we are to use our gifts and passions to serve God and serve others through: serving in the church, serving the next generation, and serving through missions.
