What to Expect

If you’ve never visited with us before, we welcome you to join us!

We are a growing church in Norfolk, VA.

“Bread” is non-denominational, and stands on the truth of God’s Word and God’s power to transform lives.  You will experience praise in the form of various styles of music, and a message that is meant to inspire and edify you. Services are typically under two hours long.  The attire ranges from casual to dressy.  Come on by, we’d love to meet you!

Our style of worship

Bread of Life Ministry is a non-traditional church with a very free style of worship. We believe in letting people express themselves to God in whatever way they feel comfortable. If you are looking for a quiet, reserved style of worship, you probably won’t enjoy our service. The Bible says in many places that God should be praised with a loud voice, and with the lifting of hands; Psalms 134, 135, 138, 144, 146, 147, 148, 149, and 150, just to name a few. At ‘Bread’ we believe in worshipping God “…in Spirit and in truth,” John 4:24. With that in mind, we allow you to worship however you please as long as it lines up with the truth of God’s Word.

We believe in all gifts of the Spirit, including speaking in tongues; however, we believe that speaking in tongues should not be done publicly without an interpreter, according to I Corinthians 14, and that it should be done in the proper setting. We also don’t believe that speaking in tongues is a prerequisite for salvation according to Romans 10:9.

In a nutshell, we do not have a dead Savior, so we don’t believe in having a dead church. When you come into our service both on weekends and Wednesdays, we ask that you place your Bible and your belongings in your seat and remain standing during our time of worship with our music ministry. At Bread of Life Ministry, we don’t come to rest, but we come to worship, so please join us in our worship.
