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.

Here’s what is going on at Baptist Temple

Upcoming Events
We will observe a Service of Tenebrae on Maundy Thursday, April 13 at 7:00 p.m. Tenebrae is a Latin word meaning “shadows.” This service reminds us of the incredible sacrifice made on our behalf by remembering the dark and shadowy events of Christ’s last days on earth. During this service, we will observe the Lord’s Supper. Then, we will experience the gathering darkness of Christ’s betrayal, arrest, trial, crucifixion, death, and tomb.

Easter – Join us Sunday, April 16 at 11:00 a.m. for a celebration of Christ’s resurrection.

Speaking from the heart –

Members of Baptist Temple share their experience.

“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.”
