You have already used the verb "to be" in your question, when you used the conjugated verb "is". Other conjugations of "to be" in English are: was, am, were are, and being. "To be" is called the infinitive (unconjugated) form of the verb. (I never learned this until I studied foreign languages!)

The form that you use depends upon the subject pronoun and the tense (past, present, progressive, past participle or subjunctive). The table at the website above explains it better. The future tense of "to be" is just "will be".
