Forest Hills Baptist is an independent, Sovereign Grace Baptist Church. By independent, we mean that we belong to no organization or controlling fellowship. By Sovereign Grace, we mean that our belief is that God is sovereign in all things including the giving of the grace of salvation. By Baptist, we mean that we are a Baptist church in the historic sense and not in the modern day sense in that we have not abandoned the Baptist distinctions of our Baptist forefathers.
Our mission is to create community, to nurture spiritual growth, and to act on our values to help heal the world. Our desire is to reach out and become involved in the life of each of these communities by sharing God's love not only on Sundays, but also in other practical ways throughout the week. We would love to have you join us for one of our services or serve with us in one of the ministries you'll find as you navigate our site.
Our doctrinal position is outlined in the London Confession of Faith (1689).

or code of faith, whereby you are to be fettered, but as an assistance
to you in controversy, a confirmation in faith, and a means of edification
