About Us
Answering His Call - Who We Are and What We Believe


Forks United Church of Christ


We carry on the traditions of the faithful who founded this church in 1812.  A landmark along Sullivan Trail, the congregations have been proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ for over 200 years.



God calls and empowers us to minister 
to the physical and spiritual needs of all people, 
through our gifts of 
love, support and compassion 
revealed in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
