Making disciples of Jesus who Love God, Love Others and Serve the World. This is what we are about.
When you come to our services, expect to feel welcomed in a casual atmosphere where you will meet people of all ages, from diverse backgrounds and at different stages in their spiritual journey. We teach the Bible with passion and application so you will have something to hang on to when Monday morning rolls around.
Beyond Sunday, our desire is to walk with you in whatever season of life you are in and our prayer for you is that you would become a joy filled fully devoted disciple of Jesus.
Whether you feel like you’ve got things together or feel life is completely falling apart, welcome. We are here to bless and encourage you with truth and grace.
Grab a coffee at our café and then begin to take in the many opportunities here. Welcome to the journey!
God is the Creator of all that exists. He is glorious in every way. He created us to worship Him and give Him glory. As His disciples, Jesus teaches us that the most important part of life is to love God with everything we have. In Him, we find the greatest joy life has to offer.
We show our love for God by:
• Spending time talking to Him through prayer and allowing Him to talk to us through reading and studying the Bible.
• Gathering with other believers to worship God together.
• Generously giving our resources to the mission God has called us to.
Jesus tells us that after Loving God, the next greatest love we are to have is a love for others. This allows the love of God to flow through us and be experienced by others. Loving others requires time, energy and sacrifice. We are committed to loving others and doing it with great joy! In loving others, we experience in very real ways the pleasure of God in us.
We show our love for others by:
• Investing in great relationships with our families.
• Building friendships with other Christians where we help each other grow as disciples of Jesus. This is done in our Discipleship Groups.
• Using the gifts and talents God has given us to serve others by being part of a Serve Team.
The Church is Jesus’ body and we are to show His love to the world as His hands and feet. Every follower of Jesus is called to be a “minister” of His good news in word and in deed, through acts of loving service and a commitment to share the truth of the good news of Jesus with everyone. The scope of God’s love is worldwide, and we are committed to taking the message and love of Jesus to our community and the farthest, forgotten places of the world.
We serve the world by:
• Pointing the people around us to the love of Jesus.
• Partnering with our community to show the love of Jesus to people in need.
• Reaching out around the world through our Global Engagement partners.
Everyone is welcome at Forward Church. We are a community of people of all ages.
When you step in the door, we want you to feel welcome and we will have a coffee ready for you. Come a bit early, check in your children at Forward Kids (they’ll have a great time, guaranteed), check out our free wifi in the Forward Café, find your place in the auditorium, and have a great morning with us!
Sunday morning is just the start. For us, being a disciple of Jesus is a way of life. We have various opportunities to help you connect, discover, and grow with others in your spiritual journey. Together, we want to be the light of Jesus in our region and around the world.
