Our Mission Statement

Forks Church is where God lifts up our spirits through creative worship as we build God’s Kingdom.  Come and See.  Come and Grow.  Come and Serve.


Come and See that through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we:

  • Experience the real presence of Christ in our lives. 
  • Make Christ’s presence known through engaging liturgies, uplifting music, and powerful and creative sermons.
  • Acknowledge the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.


Come and Grow in our personal relationships with Jesus Christ, we:

  • Offer an intentional ministry that integrates worship, discipleship, and discovering ways of reaching out to our neighbors.
  • Equip our members to use their spiritual gifts and become servant leaders.
  • Give generously of our time, financial resources, and abilities to build God’s Kingdom.


Come and Serve in the name of Jesus Christ, we:

  • Intentionally develop relationships with others and pray that people we serve will grow in their relationship with God.
  • Serve people in need in our community and around the world as our neighbors.
  • Convey to the people that we serve that God loves them and invite them to come and grow in their relationship with God and Jesus Christ.
