A rich history.   A thriving present.

An Exciting Future.

Baptist Temple was founded in 1908 and some things have changed very little in our 107-year history. We still believe God, church, and friends should be a significant part of life.  Our worship still includes traditional hymns, scripture readings, prayers, and a sermon.  However, many things are different, and better than ever.  In addition to the cherished components of our historic past, you will find a young ministerial staff, new ministries, and unique opportunities for service.

Temporary Worship Location

We are currently gathering for worship each week at the Sheraton Brookhollow – Ballroom G.  This will be our temporary home during the next few months as our building is being renovated.  The schedule will remain the same.  All adults will gather in Ballroom G for Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. and worship will begin at 11:00 a.m.  As well, we will have a nursery set up in an adjacent space.

During our Remodel

“In keeping with Heights tradition, our goal is to restore something historic and make it useful and beautiful again.”

Temporary Office

We have moved to a temporary office location while our church building is being renovated.  The new office is located at 1445 North Loop West, Houston, Texas, 77008, Suite 280. Office hours:  Monday through Thursday – 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Here’s what is going on at Baptist Temple

Construction Update

Construction began on April 14th of last year, and we are nearing the end of the renovation.  The last major phases of the interior construction are underway, and we expect to see some of the planned improvements for the exterior of the building to begin in the very near future.  Once these phases of the renovation are complete, the finishing touches (such as carpet, paint, trim work, etc.) will follow soon after.  We hope to be back in the building within the next few months.

Accomplishing Our Tasks with God’s Help

Nehemiah 6:15-16

February 14, 2016

Speaking from the heart –

Members of Baptist Temple share their experience.

“We’re not as big or influential as we were when I first joined, but I like us now.  We are a family of believers that care about each other, and we are a light for lots of people in this community. I think that is all God wants from any of us.”
“I didn’t know anyone at the church, but they welcomed me in a loving way, and Baptist Temple has been my church home and church family ever since.  I am very excited about Baptist Temple’s future.”
“God led us to Baptist Temple, and we have become more solid in our faith, growing in the Spirit of God.  I praise God for allowing me to be a part of this church to watch not only myself grow, but also my children.”
