Our Mission & Vision
Belforest Christian came into being in the early 1900s. The church really began to take root in January, 1913 with the help of a visiting minister named S. P. Spiegal. The small church was located in the rural community named Belforest.
The main worship building was constructed in 1915 and much later an educational building was added. Through this long span of time the congregation continued to work and serve as a church whether or not there was a minister. Currently, the church is undergoing major renovations in order to meet the spiritual needs of a growing community.
