Who we are
The Bridge, formerly First Assembly of God Niagara Falls, has been a fixture in Niagara Falls for more than 80 years. Located at 9750 Niagara Falls Boulevard, The Bridge is centrally located in the Niagara area, drawing people from all parts of Western New York. More than our location, people are drawn to The Bridge because it is a place to belong and experience God.
From our small beginnings in 1938- meeting in the home of Rev. Percy King- to our present location at 98th Street & Niagara Falls Blvd, The Bridge has seen hundreds of people ministered to over the years. We have been served by a number of amazing men of God called to Niagara Falls each ministered in his own way and in so doing brought us closer to the vision God has given our church. As part of that vision, in 2012, we helped launch Lumber City Church in North Tonawanda, NY and in 2014 Nickel City Church in North Buffalo, NY.
The name of our church is The Bridge because we are building a bridge to a better tomorrow for the community around us. We want to help people have a real relationship with a real God and discover His purpose for your life.
The Bridge is a place for you to belong.
our Mission & Vision:
Building a bridge to a better tomorrow for our community.
our Core Values & Beliefs:
We share the only message that works using any method that works. As the church, we declare and demonstrate the gospel in everything we say and do; we will do anything short of sin to introduce people to the good news of Jesus.
We embrace His purpose over our preferences. As the church, we exist for the mission of God; we are spiritual contributors, not spiritual consumers.
As the church, we seek to be a blessing and run toward opportunities to serve and strengthen our community without an agenda.
We welcome everyone as if they are family and help every individual discover how God made them and empower them to faithfully serve in ways that align their talents and passions. We desire to worship God with excellence in every endeavor.
We hold tightly to everything God says to us; we hold loosely to everything God gives to us. We honor God through wise stewardship of resources. As the church, we stand firmly on God’s word; we give cheerfully to God’s work.
