Thanks for checking out our website! More than a campus in West Raleigh, Forest Hills is a family of faith that spreads all over Raleigh and Wake County.
Our congregation is made up of Raleigh natives and transplants. We’re made up of all age groups from children, youth, and college all the way up to senior adults. We’re committed to providing growth, ministry, and service for all members of the body of Christ, no matter their age or position in life.
Though we are a Baptist church, we’re welcoming of all people whether they come from a Christian background or not. We believe that all people are equipped to be on mission for Christ and because of that, we’re a church that affirms men and women in ordained ministry and all aspects of church leadership.
Wherever you are on your journey in life, we invite you to walk with us, so that together we might discover “how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ!” (Ephesians 3:18)
Please check out the information on our website, contact us with any questions you might have, and make plans to join us for worship soon!
At Forest Hills, you’re going to meet a lot of different people who all share one main thing in common: they love Jesus. The church is full of misfits and saints, young and old, and Forest Hills is no different. Our “real” church experience guarantees that you’ll worship, grow, and serve alongside people of all ages, backgrounds, and more.
The church is at its best when it’s worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! If you’re interested in our church community, we recommend starting your journey with us on Sunday morning for worship. We’re confident that the best image of our church is seen in our worship time each Sunday.
When you join us for worship on Sunday mornings, you’re given the choice of attending one of our two worship services that take place simultaneously at 11:00am.
While most people gravitate towards the service that best connects with them, we recommend trying out both services to experience the diversity of worship styles that exist within the body of Christ.
At either worship service, you’ll have a preacher bringing a message from the Bible. At Forest Hills, our preaching rotation includes the Senior Pastor as well as other members of the ministry staff. Depending on the Sunday and service you attend, you’ll hear one of our gifted ministers bringing the message.
If you decide to visit either worship service, you’ll be invited to fill out a Connection Card. It’s our way of connecting our guests with the ministry staff, who are more than happy to answer questions you may have and help connect you with ministries that appeal to you.
Just so you know, this isn’t a country club. Membership isn’t measured in dollars, but in our shared commitment to this community of faith where God is at the center of everything we do. If you’re feeling led to join Forest Hills, please contact the Minister for Sharing Christ and he’ll be happy to talk with you about what it means to belong and serve at Forest Hills. Our Minister for Sharing Christ, Tyler Ward, can be reached by calling the church or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Some people didn’t grow up going to church, and others are unfamiliar with the customs and rituals of a more traditional worship service. If this describes you, or you just like contemporary music, you'll find our contemporary service to be a relaxed, informal atmosphere while still recognizing the holy presence of God.
Some people prefer a traditional style of worship with hymns, a choir, and an organ. A more formal and traditional space allows them to fellowship with others and glorify our loving and mighty God. If this describes you, you’ll find our traditional service to be a welcome, relatable worship experience that connects you to God in a more formal way.
Our music ministry offers something for everyone. If you are passionate about music, or just want to try out something new, you are invited to join us in serving God through music. A praise band leads our contemporary service and we offer choirs for children through adults, as well as opportunities for ensembles, instrumentalists, and soloists. There are also opportunities for those with A/V skills to serve, as well.
