Our Mission and Vision
Seeking, Serving, and Sharing Christ
At Forest Hills, you'll hear these words often: Seeking, Serving, and Sharing Christ. These aren't just alliterative words meant to please the ear, these words define who we are as a community of faith. Here's what we mean by each of those words...
Seeking: growing closer to God through weekly worship, prayer, and discipleship opportunities
Serving: supporting and caring for each member of the family of God.
Sharing: taking the love of Christ into our community and world in tangible and dynamic ways.
Forest Hills' vision is to Seek, Serve, and Share Christ by:
Seeking hope, peace, and God’s will through Bible study, prayer, and worship (Psalm 119:11; Acts 1:14; Romans 15:30; Ephesians 6:18; Philippians 4:6-7)
Working together with a servant mindset to serve our Lord, His Church, our community, and those in need (Psalm 82:3-4; Proverbs 19:17; 31:8-9; Matthew 25:34-40; Luke 12:33; Acts 20:28, 35; Galatians 5:13; Ephesians 6:7; James 1:27; 1 Peter 4:11b)
Sharing the good news of Jesus Christ here and throughout the world and teaching others to do the same (Matthew 28:19-20; Romans 10:14-15; Philemon 6)
