TBBF Jail Ministry
Director: Dennis Philpot
The jail ministry at The Bridge Bible Fellowship exists for the sole purpose of reaching out to inmates with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to provide love, hope and encouragement for those who have been largely forgotten by our society.
The jail ministry is founded on the wonderful truth from God’s Word that Jesus died for all men and women, even those who are incarcerated. The Apostle Paul stated in I Timothy 1:15-16, “It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all. Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life.”
Jesus loves the cocaine addict just as much as He loves the student body president. The Gospel is for all people. Therefore, we can walk into these facilities with confidence knowing that our precious Savior is going in there with us. We become His hands and feet. His Word will not return to Him void.
