What is FGT About?



FGT is a place for people to move forward in their spiritual journey. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or where you’re at, the emphasis at FGT is on who you are becoming. Through a relationship with Christ our lives become brighter and more beautiful as God enters in and we start to become like Him!


Here at FGT we provide opportunities for people to:

Reach up and grow in intimacy with God

Reach in and grow in community with believers

Reach out and grow in influence with others

FGT FAMILY Church Home Church

At FGT we believe the best way to experience life change and feel a part of our church family is by being in a Small Group. Our Small Groups comprise of 8-12 people who meet bi-weekly in someone’s home. Together in community, group members gather to study the Bible, ask questions, care for one another, and challenge each other to live out the teachings of Jesus.
