Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Forest Grove Christian Church is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. The vision of our church is to glorify our God and Savior, Jesus Christ, to make true disciples by sharing the only Gospel that saves, to edify believers, and to serve as God’s hands and feet.  We believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and stand on it’s truth.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word.

The Bible has a lot to say about leadership, and Ray is gifted in taking those instructions and implementing them in a way that matches the character of God. However, he does not accomplish this task alone as he is joined by other board members.
