Forest Grove Church

Who We Are


Forest Grove Church is a Texas State Historical Marker, but more importantly, an active church family who loves Jesus and each other, and is a family always expecting guests. Therefore, we reserved the best seats (and a warm welcome) for YOU!


Intentionally Outward-Focused.

We desire to reach our local community in Lucas, Allen, McKinney and surrounding communities with the truth and love of Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and rose from the dead.

Therefore, we engage in sharing our faith in these following ways:

  • – Participate in local outreach projects through our partnership with All Community Cares
  • – Monthly share our faith with those who don’t yet know Jesus in partnership with Revive Texas
  • – Help families with children experiencing homelessness achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response by housing them onsite through Family Promise of Collin County
  • – We cross cultural and geographic boundaries through active cooperation on short-term trips with our missionaries whom we support (prayer, encouragement, financial), such as the Hammons Mission in the Dominican Republic and Haiti


Our focus is to develop leaders who are biblically rooted in their theology and relationally sound in their engagements with others. We want our congregation to be shaped by their love for God and equipped to teach truth, that we may all love the people we serve.

Our leaders teach the Bible in the following ways:

– In a Paragraph-by-paragraph, topical Expository format
– From a Messianic Jewish and Dispensational perspective
– Through the lens of a Historical-Grammatical method of interpretation

We have a rich and varied history since 1847 when we began, and aim to grow to accommodate all who need and follow Jesus both now and until He returns.
