Who we are.
Bridge of Hope (Z) Ministries
Is a registered and affiliated non-denominational Christian institution with a passion to propel folks into their pre-ordained purpose, bringing Hope through Truth & Love.
Based in Lusaka, Zambia, a place of a true and fulfilling worship experience and a ministry that inspires and works with believers from all walks of life and locations, across denominational barriers; to do the works of Jesus Christ, make an impact in lives especially in the most vulnerable communities with the Gospel and material support. Ministering to the spirit, soul and body.
We Believe in the Gospel.
The Gospel is the GOOD NEWS about Jesus. Jesus is the most famous person in all of human history. More songs have been sung to him, artwork created of him, and books written about him than anyone who’s ever lived. Even our calendar is based off his life, dividing time before and after him. At Bridge of Hope, we’re all about Jesus (John 8:12)
RESPOND TO THE GOSPEL.
How to Make a Faith Commitment:
In a prayerful moment, turn your life over to the care and control of Jesus Christ. Say;
Jesus, I believe that you are God. I believe that you came into the world to rescue me from sin and death. I believe you died, were buried and rose again, conquering death for me. I accept your free gift of forgiveness and eternal life. Come and lead my life, I will follow you from today. Thank you for Loving and saving me! Amen.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
By God’s gracious aid, we will walk together in Christian love, working and praying for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. We will seek to promote the affectionate care and watchfulness over each other, and faithfully admonish and entreat one another as occasion requires. We will rejoice at each other’s happiness and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear each other’s burdens and sorrows. We will aid one another in sickness and distress and cultivate Christian compassion toward the needy and downtrodden. We will be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation.
We will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, nor neglect to pray for ourselves and others. We will seek to sustain the church’s worship, community, ordinances, doctrines and discipline. We will contribute of ourselves and our resources cheerfully, sacrificially, and regularly to the support of the ministry, expenses of the church, relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel throughout the world.
We will endeavor to bring up those that are under our care, in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and by a pure and loving example seek the salvation of our family and friends. We will pursue a living relationship with God through the reading and application of His word. We will walk wisely in the world, be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our conduct. We will seek to pursue peace with men and holiness before God.
To these and all other Christian duties we humbly and cheerfully submit ourselves, striving to faithfully perform them in the strength of our Lord.
We are on a God-given mission, bigger than anything we can comprehend, more important than anything we’ve ever done. At the center of The Bridge of Hope Ministries are the following values:
Trust, Love, Honour, Respect, Generosity and Focus.
They are the bedrock of all we do, immovable, cannot be compromised, detoured around or lured away. This is who we are; it is who you will become as you live your Christian life out with Bridge of Hope Church.

truth. Ask your kids what they learned in church this week!

PARTNER WITH US
BridgeofHope envisions reaching people from all walks of life, starting with the communities within Lusaka, the compounds, then to all the 10 provinces of Zambia with emphasis on the most rural parts, who are brought into a friendly and loving environment, where acceptance, answers, hope and love are found. After which other parts of Africa that are not mostly reached and other vulnerable parts of the World where the gospel is not easy to spread, God Willing. BridgeofHope is exciting, fun, growing, and full of life! We believe in having a bright viewpoint toward life and the world around us. BridgeofHope is a place where folks are taught to enthusiastically use their God given gifts, in all areas of their lives, to serve others and grow His church. At BridgeofHope, it’s all about bringing Hope through truth and love, and our mission is summarized in JOHN 8:12; Then spoke Jesus again to them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. And as thus…
As we understand that the above cannot easily be fulfilled by one person in their location, we are here to create the environment and channel through which we can come together through this kingdom arrangement and do this together. Your time, or your prayers, or your resources can go a long way towards achieving this vision and we can do it together. In the Kingdom of God we are co-labourers together in His vineyard, therefore we win better together!
Why Partner with us?
Giving cheerfully and sacrificially of our finances is part of our worship. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent (10%) of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering. A believer labors to steward God’s resources in their hands well and model Jesus to our brothers, sisters, and community.
Our work is an effort to serve our Father in all things, and one of the primary ways we serve God is by cheerfully giving God our first-fruits (2 Corinthians 9:7; Proverbs 3:9). We call our members to give, not by meeting some obligatory percentage, but gladly sacrificing for the sake of the gospel because Jesus sacrificed for us, and all we have is His. We extend the call to give any sacrifice or sow a seed of love to help us fulfil this vision. You may give as led or partner with us with specific amounts and action, which may include: 1. Financial gift(s), (2). Material, such as Toys, clothes, food, school requirements, for orphaned or vulnerable children in the compounds and the rural parts of the country where the gospel shall be preached in combination with these material assistance programs, (3) You may simply adopt a child or two or more to specifically support through the BridgeofHope Outreach Ministry with upkeep and education (4) You may partner to support the reformation of vulnerable girls/boys on/off the streets involved in illicit vices, such as prostitution and drug abuse, due to different circumstances, etc. these shall be ministered to, delivered, led to salvation and assisted with skills development or education so that they don’t fall back and once successfully assisted can also contribute a small amount or their time towards
helping another person and the process goes on until we reach all who can be saved. Your partnering with us will make all this possible and help you do your part to fulfil that purpose, while positioning yourself for the blessing of giving into a good, fertile ground and for a cause bigger than all of us, in obedience to the Word of The Lord Jesus Christ to do His works (Matthew 7:17-27)!
