The Implications Of Infinite Gravity

According to theory, Black Holes have infinte mass and infinte gravity. How then, can there be an event horizon? If the force of gravity from the Black Hole is infinite, then it would not dissipate with distance and therefore would be the same everywhere, for an infinite distance. If my understanding of infinity is correct, then Black Holes must have a finite mass and gravity if there is to be an an event horizon.....right?
