is a new, life-giving church community
in beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC!
Many people today feel "stuck" in life.
Their faith, relationships, and careers
all seem to be spinning their wheels.
We believe there's a better way!
This is why we exist:
To move people forward to
the full life that God intends!
FORWARD is affiliated with the Assemblies of God and
Church Multiplication Network.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to Him,
and He will make your paths straight."
Jesus says, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
In our values:
Leaning >>> FORWARD
(dependent upon His presence
in our lives and worship services)
Thinking >>> FORWARD
(growing disciples, equipping leaders, and
seeking new approaches in ministry)
Moving >>> FORWARD
(advancing the Kingdom of God
one person at a time)
Giving >>> FORWARD
(generous people serving a generous God)
Reaching >>> FORWARD
(telling our neighbors about Jesus Christ
in both words and actions)
WHY MYRTLE BEACH?
According to the U.S. Census, Myrtle Beach is the second fastest growing metro area in the entire country... for the last three years in a row!
The population has grown from 269,291 in 2010 to 344,147 in 2018... up 28%! When including both Horry and Georgetown counties, that's over 400,000 people!
This growth comes as a result of many families moving to the area. However, two-thirds of the residents here are not involved in any faith community.
We believe they need Jesus Christ and a diverse, dynamic, and loving church family to belong to!
