About Forgiven Life
Forgiven Life is a life journey of people who have been forgiven by Jesus. Forgiven Life Community Church is about loving Jesus, loving people, and loving life.
Your journey begins with Jesus … to know Jesus … to love Jesus … to live for Jesus. And as a result of loving Jesus, you will love life because your life will be more abundant (John 10:10). It is not the abundance of things (Luke 12:15), but the abundance of life. The Forgiven Life is about loving Jesus and loving life.

Our values have a strong influence on our behavior and on our performance. Forgiven Life Community Church holds to several values that guide our ministry and practice. These values are the A.C.T.S. of Forgiven Life.
Being genuine and being real is one of the core values of Forgiven Life. Our love for God must be genuine and honest. Jesus says that those who worship God must worship in spiritual and in truth instead of being ritual and hypocritical (John 4:24). Our love for one another must be real and not fake. Our love for each other comes from place of compassion and honesty.
Understanding and sympathizing with each other is another core value. Compassion is what moves Jesus to act. Compassion is to be a mark of all Christians and will move us to act as well (Colossians 3:12-13). Compassion is “suffering with” someone who is hurting. It is being there, lending a hand, and extending an ear. It is also celebrating with those who are joyful. It is rejoicing in other’s success. The love that we share with each other comes from a place of compassion and not of judgment.
Joyfully working together is another strong value of Forgiven Life. A proverb once said, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Everybody has value at Forgiven Life, and as long as we do things together, we can go far. The Church is described as a body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:14-18) and each individual plays a crucial part in making the body healthy.
Forgiven Life is about simplicity, trimming away the unnecessary excess. Our worship is simple. Our love for God is simple. Our love for one another is simple. It is real people doing real things in simple ways.
