God’s goal is for us to become mature adults—to be fully grown, measured by the standard of the fullness of Christ….By speaking the truth with love, we are to grow up in every way into Christ.” -Ephesians 4:13-15
Love. Grow. Serve. These three focus everything that Forest Hills is and does. They are biblical expressions of God’s character, and they identify God’s people in community.
God has created us for a purpose. God’s plan for us is that we be more than we are right now. Following Jesus means changing and growing and becoming more like Him, and more the way God designed us to be. This is something we do, and, at the same time, it is something that the Holy Spirit does within us.
We grow through healthy, holy habits. We grow through activities we do to deepen our faith in God. Some we do on our own, and there are some we do together. We need to be connected to others and activities that keep us growing spiritually.
