The story of the beginnings of our church and how we became what we are today.
We invite you to become a part of the church today and a piece of its history tomorrow.
Temple Baptist Church began having services On Calhoun Street in 1953. Its purpose was to proclaim truth to
people who were searching for something stable in a upside down world. People had heard for half a century that war was ending,
poverty was past, and everything was to be wonderful, yet they had seen two world wars, the great depression and heard empty
promises by politicians who had discovered that the ones who promised the most would be elected. The substitute for peace
was the Korean War, prosperity was higher taxes and the wonderful life was viewed on television.
declaring that our hope was not in man or religion, but in Jesus Christ. It gave a message that was not always popular but
always needed. After 3 location changes, it ended up at 11965 Kenn Rd where we presently reside.
Baptist Church faithfully proclaims the message of hope to everyone who will listen. We are not changing the message to fit
your life, but would love to give you a message that will prepare you to fit God's life. If you are looking for TRUTH that
will set you free, give us a call or visit us and we will gladly share God's Good News.
2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth
them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
We are a fundamental, Bible believing & teaching Church; proclaiming
that salvation and a home in Heaven is God's free gift to all mankind through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Temple Baptist Church is a friendly, growing church whose desire is to please the Lord
in all that we do. We invite you to be a part of this happy fellowship and serve the Lord with us.
