Welcome to the official website of the Forrest Apostolic Christian Church. All who are interested are encouraged to attend any of our services and learn about the Apostolic Christian faith by observation and hearing.

The Forrest Apostolic Christian Church, in accordance with the beliefs of Apostolic Christian Church of America, believes in the infallibility of the Bible, and is founded on faith in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The purpose of the church is to teach the Gospel message of salvation, to nurture the believer, to preserve sound doctrine and to serve others in the likeness of Christ.

The church diligently applies New Testament standards to everyday life and worship, and it practices a deep reverence toward God.

Salvation through Jesus Christ is man's greatest treasure. The Forrest Apostolic Christian Church seeks to share the joy of this marvelous gift from God, and prays diligently that others also will turn to Jesus Christ in true faith and repentance, experience peace with God and man, and receive the gift of eternal life.
