We are so excited that you decided to visit us online today! In this website you will see some of the ways that God is allowing us to fulfill our mission of leading imperfect people to a perfect God. We also hope you will discover all the amazing opportunities for you and your family to connect here at Temple Baptist Church.
When you visit TBC you can expect to feel welcomed and accepted from the moment you step through the door. You will be encouraged by passionate worship, and empowered by relevant and creative presentations of God’s good news. Everything we do at TBC revolves around Jesus Christ, for He is the One who brings real and meaningful life-change.
We offer 3 weekend services, as well as other events throughout the week. Every experience provides relevant Bible-based teaching, live worship music, and exciting, age-appropriate children’s services.
Your infants, toddlers and beginners (new born through Kindergarten) will love our nursery and pre-school classes during all of our services. Our staff has customized age-appropriate activities for your child’s enjoyment in a safe and loving environment.
Kidz Zone (1st to 5th grade) offers an exciting and upbeat atmosphere during our weekend experiences for elementary students to experience a life-changing encounter with Jesus. Tons of fun, music, puppet shows and lessons just for them will ensure they have a blast.
High value is placed on the middle and high school students at TBC, and our RIFT Student Ministries does a fantastic job of expressing that value — teaching the students about the life God intended for them.
AWANA Ministry teaches children about the people and events of the Bible through scripture memorization, lessons and game time. This builds a foundation of wisdom for knowing God throughout their lives. AWANA meets Sunday nights (during the school year) @ 5:30pm.
If you are a college student, young professional, single adult, married couple or senior citizen, we also have something exciting for you. Weekly services, small Life Groups and other opportunities provide you with a great place to grow.
The Crossroads Café offers coffee, tea and refreshments in a relaxed atmosphere for fellowship. Join us Sunday mornings for a free latte or espresso, 8:00am to 10:00am.

So come, lend your heart and voice, and let us exalt the name of Jesus together!
Temple Baptist Church is a Christian church. We follow Jesus Christ, we teach from the Bible, and we worship God as the creator and ruler of the universe. Through our relationship with Jesus Christ, we are forgiven of our sins, transformed in our lives, restored in our relationship with God who loves us dearly. It's our passion to share this faith and hope with our city and our world.
We exist to love God & share God by reaching our city and our world – inspiring people to become dynamic followers of Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is coequal with the Father and Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.
The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved. As
Christians we seek to live under His control daily.
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error.
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. Sin separates us from God and causes many problems in our life.
Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we
turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Christ. It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted himself to baptism to “fulfill all righteousness.”
In Non-Essential Beliefs, we have liberty. Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls… So then each of us will give an account of himself to God… So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.
In All our Beliefs, we show charity. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
We designed a booklet to help guide new believers in Christ through the beginning stages of Christianity. Click the link below to download the booklet.
