The Bridge is a non-denominational church in Maryville, MO that is all about loving God, loving people, & making disciples! The local church isn't a building - it's a gathering of people, a FAMILY. We see our family coming together to glorify God and to reach out with his love to others. We have Sunday services every week at 9 & 10:30 and would LOVE to have you come. Welcome to the Family!


Love God, love people, make disciples.

what we believe


There is one true God who has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind.

the word

The Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God. The Bible is the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.

the spirit

All believers should earnestly seek the promise of the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire. With it comes power for life, service, and gifts to serve.
