Our History

Forestwood Baptist Church began as a mission Sunday, February 7, 1982 at the Aikin Elementary School cafeteria in Roman Forest. From the initial service, the mission was financially self-supporting, adopting a budget that emphasized mission support through both the Southern Baptist Convention Cooperative Program and direct mission enterprises. The growing little mission was constituted as a church at a special service on Sunday, October 10, 1982.
 
In October 1991, Forestwood received a special Certificate of Recognition from the Tryon Evergreen Baptist Association for outstanding growth. In 1991 and again in 1993, the church was honored with the Pace Setter Award for evangelistic growth.
 
Forestwood celebrated its 25th anniversary in February 2007. The Lord continues to bless the efforts of His church as we fulfill the responsibilities of a New Testament Church.
 
Many people have served in important roles in the history of Forestwood, including those who fill the pews each Sunday and on Wednesday night, and particularly those who serve quietly in the background. The importance of any person cannot be diminished, because without each of them the church would not be complete. They have said... "As for me, and my house, we will serve the Lord."

 

Southern Baptist Convention

Since its organization in 1845 in Augusta, Georgia, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has grown to over 16 million members who worship in more than 42,000 churches in the United States. Southern Baptists sponsor about 5,000 home missionaries serving the United States, Canada, Guam and the Caribbean, as well as sponsoring more than 5,000 foreign missionaries in 153 nations of the world.

The term "Southern Baptist Convention" refers to both the denomination and its annual meeting. Working through 1,200 local associations and 41 state conventions and fellowships, Southern Baptists share a common bond of basic Biblical beliefs and a commitment to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world.

You become a Southern Baptist by uniting with a Southern Baptist church, one in friendly cooperation with the general Southern Baptist enterprise of reaching the world for Christ. We are currently dually aligned with Tryon Evergreen Baptist Association and the South Texas Baptist Association and are proud members of the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention. Typically church membership is a matter of accepting Jesus as your Savior and Lord and experiencing believer's baptism by immersion.
