Our Church family welcomes you to Wake Forest Church of God…a church that cares. Our church is a “place to belong,” where hurting people can find healing, where searching people can find truth, friendships, opportunity for personal growth, and involvement. It is our desire to reach our community with the love of Jesus Christ. We want to make a difference in individual lives, in families, in our community, and around the world.
