Our Mission & Belief

Who is Temple Baptist Church?

“Loving God, loving others, serving BOTH.”

Our Mission:

We here at Temple Baptist Church are here to reach out to the lost in our community. We want to not only spread the gospel but also live it, equipping the saints in discipleship to prepare them to sow the seeds, reap the harvest, and endure life’s uncertainties. We are a beacon in a hurricane of humanity, shining the light of salvation through Jesus Christ.

What We Believe:

Our church has adopted the Baptist Faith and Message of the Southern Baptist Convention (2000) as our statement of faith. Below is a summary of six primary doctrines and what we believe about them.

God – That God exists eternally and that He manifests Himself in three persons . . . God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19;  1 Peter 1:2;  II Corinthians 13:14;  Psalm 90:2;  Genesis 1:1,26; 3:22

Jesus Christ – That Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, was crucified, buried, and rose bodily from the grave, and will come again to this world to reign in righteousness. Luke 1:30‑35;  John 14:6; 1 Thessalonians 4:16‑17

Holy Spirit – That a person is baptized with the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ at the time of conversion, this baptism results in a believer being filled and super naturally empowered for service through spiritual gifts. 1 Corinthians 12:13;  Roman 8:9‑17;  John 16:7‑13;  Ephesians 5:18;  Galatians 5:25;  John 14:16‑17

Bible – That the Bible is our supreme authority and it is sufficient as our only rule of faith and practice. The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is truth without any mixture of error. 2 Timothy 3:16;  Hebrews 4:12;  Revelation 22:19;  Proverbs 30:5;  Psalm 119:105;  160;  2 Peter 1:20, 21

Salvation – That forgiveness, salvation, and new life is made possible by the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. This salvation is by grace through faith by the appropriation of the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Romans 6:23;  Ephesians 2:8‑9;  John 14:6;  John 1:12;  Titus 3:5;  Galatians 3:26;  Romans 5:1

Eternity – That there will be a bodily resurrection of the saved to eternal life and a resurrection of the unsaved to eternal punishment in hell. Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. John 3:16;  John 5:11-13;  John 10:29;  Romans 6:23
