Q: Do you guys believe and teach the Bible? I have heard that some churches that are modern, like Forward, have been shying away from that.
A: Yes, we believe and teach the whole Bible. We make it where it is understandable and applicable. You will find that several times a year we will go through a various books in the Bible chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse. Many of our attenders tell us that they enjoy the messages because they are Biblically centered and easy to apply to daily life.
Take some time to listen or watch some of our messages to get a taste of what you will experience: MESSAGES

A: From start to finish they are about 90 minutes. However, folks love to show up early for our FREE Sacred Grounds Coffeehouse on Sunday mornings to get some good coffee and hang out with other people.
Q: What can I expect the worship experience to be like?
A: You will find a relaxed and friendly environment from the parking lot all the way through your experience.

Q: What is the music like? Do you clap? And I hate to ask this but will there be any crazy stuff going on during worship?
A: Our music is high-energy and upbeat. We have a full band complete with drums, bass guitar, acoustic & electric guitar, piano and skilled singers. We sing songs that you would be accustomed to hearing on Christian radio as well as from the top artists in Christian worship. We sing songs from Hillsong, Elevation Worship, Tomlin, Bethel, Matt Redman and Jesus Culture.
You will not see anything crazy at Forward. We understand that all people worship differently. Some people do clap and some people raise their hands and sing. We encourage everyone to enjoy the experience in a way that feels comfortable to them. Our desire is that we come together to worship Christ and remove any distractions that may hinder others from engaging with Him.
