Welcome!

Here at Forest Grove, The Gospel or Good News of Jesus guides all that we do. If you are new to Christianity, we are glad that you stopped by to check out our church, but more importantly we pray that you might consider the claims the Bible makes about who Jesus is and what He came to do.

“Forest Grove Church exists to make disciples of all people and help them become more like Christ”

The primary past, present, and future activity of the church is as a place of worship of Jesus Christ, Bible study, and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. This includes weekly worship and Bible study classes for all ages on Sundays, in addition to weekday classes and groups.

Our History

Forest Grove Christian Church began in local homes in the Lucas, Texas area in 1847-48 with members of the Church of Christ (Christian Church). It was formally organized as a church on July 23, 1858. The names of the founders are also found among the pioneers of Collin County. The first church building was dedicated in 1875, and it was replaced in 1953. The church closed on April 8, 1984, but reopened on October 11, 1992. In 2013 the church began the process of ending its affiliation with the Disciples of Christ and becoming an independent Non-Denominational Bible Church. In the summer of 2018, the church officially changed its name to Forest Grove Church, embracing its rich heritage, yet envisioning a bright future ahead.

A Place Where You Can Belong 

Here at FGC, worship and fellowship is fairly laid back. People come in anything from a suit to a t-shirt and shorts. Our service can best be described as blended, incorporating hymns, contemporary worship music, a splash of liturgy, prayer, the Lord’s Table, and a sermon that connects the relevance of the Bible to everyday life. And childcare is provided for those with children up to four years of age!
 
Beyond the forms of worship, that come and go, we seek to be true to the function of corporate gathering: of worshiping the living God, caring for each other’s needs, and spurring each other on toward love and good works in the name of Jesus.
 
We hope to be place where anyone who holds a broadly Evangelical view on faith and practice can call home. At FGC, the Gospel is central and our heart is to be a community that together grows in faith, calls all people to follow Jesus, and serves (albeit imperfectly) as a preview of God’s coming Kingdom.
