How do I turn our beliefs into action?

Let's face it, God demands and expects us to live to high standards to be a Christian. When Jesus was questioned by the Pharisees and Sadducees, he was asked, "Teacher, what is the greatest commandment in the Law?"

Jesus replied, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments." - Matthew 22: 36-40.

What does that mean to Love God with all your heart, soul and mind?

Just like anyone else that would be important to you, it requires building a relationship with that person through time and effort. God expects the same.

In the 1700's, John Wesley, founder of Methodism, said we need to continuously dive deeper into our faith. Our Christian walk is a life long journey and we are constantly learning more and developing our love of God by being "intentional in our faith development." Thus, we have Intentional Faith Development at Forest Chapel. This is where we form study groups to learn from each other and to strengthen our faith.
