The Vision of Forcey Bible Church is that we all grow to love God and people with head, heart and hands, like Jesus.
With all our heart, soul, mind and strength, we want to see people move from just being curious about Jesus, to being convinced; from being convinced to being committed; and from committed to consumed by Jesus.
Together we are growing up to love God and people: to be like Jesus in the way we think and the things we believe, in our character and the way we live, and in how we serve other believers, the community, and the world.
Recognizing that we are under the authority of Jesus Christ as our Head and the Bible as absolute truth, and that we depend on the power of the Holy Spirit, these core values define and drive what we do in the mission God has given us.
