tfc-bbbDid you notice those three words tucked up in the right hand corner of the home page?  Small, but very significant words, each with a very specific purpose and intention.  They are critical to our journey and yours as we make our way through life.  What is the basic and most important need of every human being?  To be loved.  In the world as we know it, this is often a void within a person’s heart that is left vacant and felt profoundly.  We long to see that void filled within you as it has been in us.  People cannot fill it, or careers, things or money.  We’ve all seen tons of examples around us that are evidence of that.

BELONG
We say it during our gatherings, it’s on our signs, it part of our logo: You belong here. Our hope is that we provide a place, a family and refuge, where anyone can belong and be accepted, loved and encouraged.

BELIEVE
We love our City and serve our friends and neighbors. As we walk with people through their struggles we point them to the cross and the gospel, which has transformed our lives.  It is this, the golden nugget of truth – the gift of Jesus and the power of his love in our lives – that is at the crux of our faith.

BECOME
Behavior is the fruit of belief. Once we exchange the belief in lies for truth, our behavior can change. Often that takes time. And that’s okay. The ongoing work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer is not a linear path from messy to unmessy. It’s often two steps forward three steps back. And that’s okay. But the Forge is here to help believers become what God intends: to “become conformed to the image of His Son” (Romans 8:29). This could take a lifetime, but we’re all about equipping people for following Jesus and serving out of that relationship; to walk out their life with purpose, passion with a clear sense of being loved.

It is different, isn’t it?  The style of the logo even more so.  It was in answer to the whisper.  It meant stepping out on a limb, but we knew that we were supposed to do it.  We want to engage the whole community and it has allowed countless opportunities of dialogue.

The name has many meanings, many of which have given us direction and purpose.  To move forward; merge together; a special fireplace or hearth in which metal is heated before shaping; to fashion and mold with concentrated effort and care.  Historically, next to food and shelter, a forge was one of the most important elements in any attempt to plant a permanent settlement. Forges have traditionally been gathering places where visiting and other social activities happened.   It was a warm meeting place for villagers and travelers alike.  We want to be that place.

Basic RGB
Our core values help us to realize our vision and are part of all we do.  They are the foundation of our identity as a community.  It is out of them that we are:

1.  COLLABORATIVE by partnering together through using a team-based approach.

2.  CREATIVE by encouraging imagination in how we do life together.

3.  A community that is COUNTER-CULTURAL by encouraging surrender and service rather than status.

4.  CROSS-CULTURAL by celebrating and embracing all nations and peoples.

5.  Surrendering our individual rights to do life together. It’s about having an attitude of servant hood; being INTERDEPENDENT.

6.  INTER-GENERATIONAL through inclusion of all ages and styles of people.

7.  INTUITIVE, meaning we are guided by the Holy Spirit and our relationships, not programs.

8.  IMPROVISATIONAL, in that we allow for spontaneity and fluidity.

9.  Deliberate an meaningful; INTENTIONAL in everything we do.
