Our Vision

The purpose of Forest Baptist Church is to “propagate among all people the gospel of Jesus Christ and to provide opportunities for worship, training, spiritual growth and service.” In short, “To Know Him & To Make Him Known…”.

Our Mission

Our church is a missions minded church. We are actively involved in missions around the world. From our ever-present missions emphasis to multiple international and domestic mission trips each year we seek to involve our members in missions.

Our Preaching

Preaching at FBC is primarily expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Bible passage. Our passion in preaching is for biblical accuracy to shape contemporary life. All preaching is gospel-driven and Christ-centered.

I'm New

We believe that the church should not be made up of a single, homogenous group, but should be as diverse as the community in which it is located. In fact, we want to look as much like heaven as possible. That’s why we welcome and encourage people of any age or race, or from any walk of life, to visit with us. You’ll find both young and old gladly worshipping and serving the Lord side by side at Forest Baptist Church (FBC).

The Stable: A Fable?

My wife collects nativity scenes. She owns all kinds: fragile family heirlooms, exotic ones from other countries, some that are hand-carved, plastic, wooden, expensive, and cheap. They all look different. And yet, each one also looks the same. There is Joseph, Mary,...
