Welcome to the Our Beliefs page of Forward Church, where we wholeheartedly share our commitment to community, society, faith, and beliefs. At Forward Church, we believe that living out our values can positively impact individuals, families, and communities. Join us as we explore our core beliefs and how they shape our mission of empowering faith and transforming communities.
A Foundation of Faith
As a community of believers, we place a strong emphasis on faith. Our foundation is built on the belief in God's love, grace, and redemptive power. Through worship, prayer, and studying the teachings of Jesus Christ, we seek to deepen our understanding of our faith and nurture a personal relationship with God.
The Power of Prayer
Prayer is a powerful tool that connects us with God. We believe in the importance of regularly communicating with God, seeking guidance, and expressing gratitude. Through prayer, we find strength, clarity, and peace in challenging times. Our dedicated prayer team is committed to interceding for the needs of our congregation and the broader community.
Studying the Scriptures
The Bible serves as our guide for faith and life. We believe in the authority and relevance of the Scriptures, and we strive to apply its teachings to our daily lives. Through biblical teachings, sermons, and small group discussions, we encourage individuals to dive deeper into the Word of God, gaining wisdom, understanding, and spiritual growth.
Values That Shape Our Mission
Our values serve as the compass that guides our mission and actions. These values are deeply rooted in our faith and shape the way we engage with our community and society. The following are key values that define our church:
Inclusivity and Acceptance
At Forward Church, we believe in the inherent worth and dignity of every individual. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment where everyone feels accepted, regardless of their background, race, gender, or age. We celebrate diversity as a reflection of God's love for all humanity.
Compassion and Service
Jesus taught us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Through acts of compassion and service, we seek to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Whether it's supporting local charities, organizing outreach programs, or participating in community initiatives, we aim to be a source of hope, comfort, and transformation.
