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.

  • There is a need for a sister to teach in Sunday School. After prayerful consideration, please bring or send a ballot to church by June 14.

  • A minister installation service is being planned for next Sunday evening, June 7, at 6:30 pm at church. While specific details are being worked out, the goal is for any who are interested to be able to attend. Please watch for additional information this week.

  • We're thankful for the opportunity to begin gathering again in church, in a limited manner. Adjustments will be made based on experience, so please be prepared for updated information and practices at church. It's also possible that increased local spread of the virus will cause us to move back to a more restrictive phase. Everyone's help and support in enabling us to worship and fellowship safely together is greatly appreciated.

  • The initial groups created for attending church are designed for simplicity and to help keep sizes manageable. If anyone has special circumstances and cannot attend with his/her group, some adjustments are possible; please contact Bro. Marvin, Bro. Jason or Bro. Ted.

  • Video streaming began in March as a way to help keep the congregation connected while no one could gather in church, and the equipment was set up as a temporary measure until we started reassembling. Many have expressed appreciation for having video available, so as we have done with similar situations in the past, there will be an opportunity to gather and discuss the benefits, drawbacks, and other considerations in the near future.

  • Donations for our collection for Apostolic Christian LifePoints may be mailed to Bro. John Schaffer, or offered online through the LifePoints website. Knowing that some may be affected in their ability to give, they especially appreciate the continued support of those who can.

  • A local reopening committee is developing plans for returning to church with consideration for state and church guidelines. While the situation is fluid, we currently expect to begin gathering in groups of up to 50 near the end of June.

  • To help minimize the spread of COVID-19 among our churches, the HarvestCall Medical Committee and the elder committee have requested that all positive cases be reported to them (without names) within 24 hours of diagnosis. To enable this, please let Bro. Marvin know of any positive tests for COVID-19 as soon as possible.
