What we believe matters. As believers, there are some important foundational truths that shape what we pursue, what we protect, what we say no to, and how we carry ourselves.
At Forward City Church, we believe that God created mankind to experience true “Shalom” (a Hebrew noun taken from the root word Shalam, meaning, “to be safe in mind, body, or estate"). This concept of shalom refers to an inward sense of completeness or wholeness, free of conflict in every aspect of life, and primarily in our relationship to God. This shalom was broken when Adam introduced sin into the world and brought brokenness to the human condition. However, God did not leave us 'shalom-less' without Hope. He has given us an ultimate, abiding, eternal, abundant answer for our hearts' desire for shalom in Jesus Christ.
