BELIEFS

  • GOD

    “…that there is one true God, the creator and ruler of the universe, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” (Genesis 1:26-27; 3:22; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

  • JESUS

    ” …that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and arose from the dead.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-8; John 3:16; Hebrews 4:14-15; Acts 1:9-11; Titus 2:13)

  • Bible

    “…that the Bible is the inspired word of God. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living, and the final authority for all matters of faith. Written by God, through inspired men, for us to teach, train, and learn.” (2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:105)

  • SIN

    “…that every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Leaving each and every person in need of a Savior.” (Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:7; Acts 4:12)

  • FORGIVENESS & SALVATION

    “…that salvation comes by God’s grace alone. Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to all those who believe in God, repent of their sin, confess their sin before God, are baptized into Him, and in this receive the gift of God’s indwelling Holy Spirit.” (John 3:16; Romans 5:8-11; Ephesians 2:8-9, Acts 2:38, Romans 10:9-10; 6:1-7)

  • HOLY SPIRIT

    “…that the Holy Spirit is at work in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ, and lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.” (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; 5:18)

  • THE CHURCH

    “…that the church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and exists to love people into a relationship with Jesus Christ and develop them into maturity in Him. The church is the people who make it up – not the building or place they go to.” (Ephesians 4:1-16)

  • THE SECOND COMING

    “…that Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and will reign forevermore.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

  • CHURCH LEADERSHIP

    The head of Forefront is Jesus Christ. As a church, we seek to reflect his priorities in all we do and how we do it. No decision is ever made that would knowingly contradict any of Jesus’ teaching. Forefront’s leadership is framed as a “staff-led, elder-protected” model.

CORE VALUES

  • GOD FIRST

    With God as our anchor, we seek to rely on Him and show Him honor in all we do. Everything is done with prayer, integrity, and excellence.



    John 3:30, “He must become greater, I must become less.”

  • EBB & FLOW LIFE

    God pouring into us, each of us pouring into others. Daily living a life of prayer, study, & serving. Let it ebb & flow. 



    John 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”

  • God-Sized Dreamers

    Dreaming, praying, and envisioning things only God could make happen and working towards that end as we follow Him.


    Ephesians 3:20-21, “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

  • SHAKE THE DUST

    Whatever skeletons reside in our closets, wherever we've been, today’s a fresh start. With God, we shake the dust and move forward in His grace & love.



    2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

  • HEARTBREAKERS

    May our hearts break with the same things that break the heart of God. 
Any injustice we see will move us deeply to rise, lend a hand, and help others. 



    "Let my heart be broken with the things that break the heart of God." Robert Pierce


    John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

  • APPLICATION IS EVERYTHING

    Our movement from belief & intent to being DO’ers. Risking big knowing a BIG GOD has BIG THINGS for us when we take action. 
We want to teach people how to fish instead of just handing them a meal.


    James 1:22, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

  • JOURNEY TOGETHER

    We’re on a journey with God that’s meant to be travelled together. Life wide open with no reservations.




    Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

  • GRAB AN UMBRELLA

    A church for anyone to experience Jesus without prejudice. Under God’s umbrella of love- it covers us as we are, but He loves us enough to not let us stay that way.


    Romans 5:6-8, “You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
