Forestwood Baptist Church was founded as a mission in 1982 at the cafeteria of Aikin Elementary School in Roman Forest and was constituted as a church at a special service in October 1982. Our building, constructed by many of the members was completed and a witness stone was set December 7, 1986. The Lord continues to bless the efforts of His church as we fulfill the responsibilities of a New Testament Church.
As a Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) church and a member of Southern Baptist of Texas Convention (SBTC), Forestwood has a tradition of preaching/teaching God’s Word with a heart for reaching the lost.
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."
