Open, authentic relationships with everyone; demonstrate the lifestyle of Jesus, love one another, connect with each other and embrace people without prejudice or judgment.
New ideas, new risks. Irrelevance is irreverence; leverage music as worship; alive and on point. A relevant expression to God, we use art, music and natural beauty for life changing experiences.
Begin an authentic relationship with God through His Son Jesus the Christ. Become competent in the Bible, consistent in prayer, and faithful in service.
Enjoy God’s goodness, life's journey, true purpose, joy and laughter.
Learn from the Bible through teaching and study, the heart of God, the truths & purpose of life and the hope of glory. Grow. Become who we were meant to be. Discover our gifts for service and influence.
Advocate for all people; the marginalized, the poor, the imprisoned, the oppressed, the helpless and the next generation. Our strong, focused ministry encourages, builds up, and prepares us for our future.
Yield to the Holy Spirit. Live a surrendered life, give God the best of our time, talent, and resources. Go beyond ourselves and reproduce the heart of Jesus in the Tahoe region and beyond.
JOIN OUR JOURNEY
In August of 2013, Tahoe Forest Church purchased 52 acres along the Truckee River. In the winter months we meet in a converted construction garage and during the summer we meet in our Outdoor Amphitheater.
Tahoe Forest Church is home to a variety of individuals and families from all over the Tahoe community. We aren’t interested in religion but desire to truly know Jesus. If you haven’t already connected with us, we invite you to join one of our Sunday gatherings.
