The Journey is our discipleship path, designed to help you and your family become whole through God’s love, establish your heart in his transformative grace and equip you in the ministry of reconciliation. You are free to take these steps at your own pace.
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY
Find out what we're about. Whether you declare formal membership or not, this online course will help you understand who we are and how we're seeking to fulfill the call of God on Forward Church.
Our Life Groups are the backbone of community at Forward. We don't have a lot of programs so if you're not connected with a Life Group you're missing out on a large party of ministry available at Forward. As a believer you need support, check out our Life Groups this week.
ESTABLISHING YOUR HEART IN GRACE
We focus on the finished work of Jesus Christ as the foundation of our theology. Since Jesus is the exact representation of the invisible God, we seek to know God through Christ and all that he accomplished in his sacrificial death, burial and resurrection.
These two books serve as an excellent to the compliment to root and ground you in the Gospel of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. You can pick these up online or in our Church Bookstore.
Living a lifestyle DISCIPLESHIP
We fully expect you to live a life disciplined by the teachings of the Bible. We will always point you to your identity in Christ and encourage you to live under God's influence so you are transformed and move forward in every area of life.
Our sermons are designed to be practically applied rather than just heard. Each week we will facilitate a moment of meditation to engage your heart with the Word of God and we will give you insights that can be applied in your every day life.
Find a Place to Serve
We don’t need you to “catch our vision,” we want you to get your own vision and follow Jesus as you feel led. That may mean you get involved with a ministry we already have in place but that may also mean you share what’s on your heart and if we can support your passion and calling we’ll work together to help you fulfill your call.
DISCIPLESHIP Courses and Resources
You don't need to "grow spiritually," you just need to renew your mind and put on your true identity in Christ.
We do not currently have the space to offer Sunday School but we do offer a variety of courses online and at church periodically on Wednesday nights. It is our desire to develop a local school, we are currently building our curriculum. Each course is free to Forward Church members.
WE'RE HERE TO SERVE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY as you follow jesus
Once you’ve put roots down and taken the first steps, we encourage you to steward your freedom at Forward well. We will not tell you what we need you to do for us, we want to help you discover your call. We will equip you to grow into the influencer God has called you to be in whatever arena of life you’re in, whether that be in your family, at your workplace or in day-to-day life.
We encourage all members to serve but we want you to serve in your area of passion or calling. We don’t want to use you to build an organization, we want to use the organization to build you.
