What we believe

It is our belief that the Church, at its core, is about glorifying God and enjoying him forever, through having a living and personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Our fellowship is made up of a number of people, who at one point in their lives, never thought they would enjoy going to Church but are now a part of a much loved Church family; and there's always room for more! 


It is our desire at Forres Baptist Church, that we would know and experience the fullness of life the Lord God Almighty offers to us. At every moment of life - moments of joy, moments of despair, and even those moments in between - we would know the grace, love and peace of God that passes all understanding.
