About our church

Forest Meadow Baptist Church  is a multi-congregational, multiethnic community of churches whose vision is to shake the nations for Jesus Christ. We actively seek out and engage ethnic people groups in Dallas and throughout the world in order to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them.  Where needed, we start new churches.  We are always available to provide training and relational support to church planters.

In all, the FMBC facility  houses five unique congregations. Each has its own language, pastor, members, and leadership.  But we all worship under the same roof– a reflection of what Heaven will be like.
