These resources are available to you in hopes that they help to bring you to know Christ as your Lord and Savior; live a life that pleases God; to provide help to those hurting and prayer for every person.

Following Jesus is both a one-time decision and a life-long process.  God wants you to have a meaningful life in a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.  However, he doesn’t force that desire on you.  He gives you a choice.  You can choose to live according to His plan, or choose to take your route and go on your own way.  If you choose to say “no” to God and live a life on your own terms then that decision separates you from Him.  Not only is refusing God a result of a sinful nature, it is sin itself.  Make a commitment to say “yes” to God first and then see how He will do an amazing work in your life.


Our Purpose

First Baptist Forney exists:

GC4: To encourage Christians to embrace a GREAT COMMITMENT to the GREAT COMMISSION and the GREATEST COMMANDMENT in order to empower a GREAT CHURCH for the glory of Jesus Christ!

How We Accomplish Our Purpose:

  • Great Commitment: Worship Mark 8:34-35
  • Great Commission: Evangelism & Discipleship Matthew 28:19-20
  • Greatest Commandment: Missions & Ministry Matthew 22:36-39
  • Great Church: Fellowship Acts 2:41-42

What We Believe:
We are a Southern Baptist Church and believe in the following fundamentals of the Christian faith:

  • The Inerrancy of Scripture
  • The Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ
  • The Substitutionary Atonement of Jesus Christ
  • The Crucifixion and Bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ
  • The Bodily, Visible Second Coming of Jesus Christ

We also hold the truths of the Baptist Faith & Message to be distinctives of Southern Baptist Churches of like faith and order. For more information on the SBC, click here.
