What do you believe?
We believe that we're here to bring glory to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We passionately desire to worship Jesus Christ, to instruct and encourage Christians to become like Christ and to share Jesus, our savior and Lord, with the world. If you would like more details about what we believe, check out the What We Believe page.
Should I bring a Bible?
Yes. But we also include all of the text on the screens for your convenience.
Your campus looks big--how do I know where I should go?
Feel free to ask any of our members or greeters or stop by an information booth and tell them what you're looking for. We have greeters and information booths at every entrance. The buildings are also labeled with large letters.
- Building A contains our Worship Center and some classrooms.
- Building B contains our Administrative Offices and Chapel.
- Building C (at the back, NE corner of the campus) contains our Garage for Students, Great Hall, and Kitchen.
- Building D (at the back NW corner of the campus) contains our Children's Event Center and First Baptist Academy. The second floor is primarily Adult and Children's Classrooms.
I like FB Forney, how do I join?
Joining is simple! During each service, Bro. Jim will extend an invitation for new members and new believers. Simply walk down to one of the staff members present and inform them that you would like to join. Also, once a month, we have a new members class called 1st PLACE at 1st FORNEY; check the worship folder, look on the website or watch the screen announcements for the upcoming dates.
I Want to Be Baptized. What is the process?
You can either visit with one of our staff members during the invitation on Sunday morning or contact the church office at 972.564.3357.
I would like to get involved. How do I do that?
The best way to get involved at First Baptist Forney is to join a Bible Study class. You can also look in the Connection Magazine for upcoming events.
I have kids. What kind of children and youth programs do you offer?
We're here to help you build a foundation of faith in your children. We offer childcare during the Sunday morning services and Bible Study Classes. We also have programs for children through the sixth grade, as well as a student-themed Wednesday service for middle school and high school students. See the Children's and Student Ministry pages under the Ministries tab on our home page.
I still have questions, what should I do?
Our Church Office is open Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Call 972.564.3357 and explain to our receptionist what area of ministry you have a question for. She will connect you to the appropriate staff member. You can also complete an information request form which is located under the Contact tab on our home page or click here to email our office.
