We love people and welcome people from all walks of life, regardless of where they are or aren't on a spiritual journey! And we want people to know that they can come just as they are without judgement or pretense and find acceptance into one of our Community Life Groups.
Existing as part of the "City of Bridges", just 9 miles up and along the Allegheny River from downtown Pittsburgh, we rely heavily on bridges in every day life. Just as bridges span rivers and connect communities, at Bridging Rivers Community Alliance we desire to "become the bridge" that spans the "river currents of culture" and connects people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ by loving our neighbors, engaging the communities, and demonstrating the loving presence of Jesus everywhere and with everyone in whom we may encounter! (1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
Our purpose statement: "We exist to help people find Jesus by bridging barriers, developing community, and loving people!"
Our vision statement: "Bridging Rivers, Creating Communities, and Loving Neighbors in Jesus Name!" (Matthew 22:39)
Bridging Rivers Community (BRC) Alliance Church is an evangelical Christian church located in Verona & Oakmont, PA with it's primary focus on serving those "Twin Borough" communities, all the while maintaining a regional and global focus that extends to the surrounding communities and even to the outer parts of the world. (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)
Bridging Rivers Community (BRC) Alliance Church is also part of a worldwide family on mission called The Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA) where in the United States, we worship in 37 languages in over 2,000 local churches. Collectively together, our Acts 1:8 family—inspired by Jesus’ love and empowered by His Spirit—is passionate to bring the good news about Him to our neighborhoods and world. Together we are part of a global movement more than 6 million strong, and support more than 700 international workers serving in 70 nations, proclaiming and demonstrating the good news of Jesus to those who have never heard of Him. Our core beliefs are expressed in the Alliance Doctrines, where we worship Jesus as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King!
