Who We Are

FORGE is a ministry for men of all ages and backgrounds who are being shaped by God into the men they want to be, so they can live the life they were born to live. At GBC, it is our desire to be a place that encourages men to make commitments to Jesus Christ, their families, and to one another. Our goal is to provide men with the resources and relationships necessary to help them develop godly character and equip them to influence their world for Jesus Christ. 

Our Purpose

To invite men to engage in Bible study, prayer, community, and accountability. To create a supportive environment that enriches the lives of GBC men and their families. To host events that will promote fellowship, outreach, service, and evangelism.

Tuesday Night FORGE

Come and join us Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm in the Fellowship Hall as we gather to study scripture together and build community. 

Study of the Book of James

Understand that works don’t save us, rather good works follow true faith as our beliefs and actions line up with each other.

James had a unique earthly relationship with Jesus, but his letter clarifies what the Christian life should look like for us all. The Book of James is filled with practical wisdom for Christians, calling us to live out genuine faith through good works, but it is also rooted in rich theology. Perhaps more than any other book in the New Testament, James emphasizes the application of Christian belief.

This 12-session study examines the core message of James: the relationship between faith and works. In our own ability, we cannot stand in the face of adversity. Without faith we could never find the strength to trust God. We would never be able to see above the trials we meet and to keep our eyes focused on the King while counting our trials as joy. This is the essence of James. We don’t work to be saved; we work because we are saved. Faith apart from works can never be sustained.
