A rich history.   A thriving present.

An Exciting Future.

Baptist Temple was founded in 1908 and some things have changed very little in our 108-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.

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.”
