Faith Community

The FM area has abundant Christian congregations ready to welcome visitors and residents to worship services. In addition, Fargo Moorhead is proud to have many Hindu residents, the Jewish synagogue Temple Beth-El, a Baha’i congregation, several active Buddhist communities, and a Muslim community of more than 5,000 people. Native American spirituality contributes an essential component to the cultural and religious life of the region, as embodied in the Fargo Moorhead Native American Center. Non-religious folks also call Fargo Moorhead home, with organizations like the Lake Agassiz Free Thinkers.

Center for Interfaith Projects

The mission of the Center for Interfaith Projects is to educate the community about different faiths and secular worldviews; increase understanding and respect across lines of difference; foster interfaith cooperation to solve community problems; and help individuals in search of a spiritual or secular home to find one.

Forum on Faith and Life

The Forum on Faith and Life, established by Concordia College in 2011, is an interfaith resource center that provides the community opportunities to encounter interfaith and intra-faith neighbors and grow in mutual understanding and respect. Concordia College’s Better Together Interfaith Alliance student organization has gleaned national recognition and awards for its interfaith cooperation efforts in the F-M area.
