Temple Baptist Church is an independent, Baptist Church. A church is not a building, or an ecclesiastical hierarchy, but a local called-out body of believers in Jesus Christ, assembled together. We assemble for praise, worship, teaching, inspiration, winning of the lost, and spiritual growth. Pastor Bill Smith, along with the deacons and staff, invite you to attend the next scheduled service.
1. What is our purpose?
Matthew 28:19-20 is the Great Commission to the church: "Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."
2. Can anyone attend? YES!
To worship God.
To grow in strength and become a growing Christian.
To show others by your testimony that you believe the Bible.
3. Everyone needs:
To hear the Good News of the Gospel.
To find Jesus Christ as personal Savior.
To find purpose and direction for your life.
To find salvation in Christ.
4. What do we believe?
The Bible: We believe it to be the verbally inspired Word of God. It is the only complete and final revelation of God to man in this age, and is the standard and guide of conduct and action for the believer and the church.
The Blood of Christ saves from sin: Without the shedding of blood is no remission (of sin). Hebrews 9.22 Even so the Son of man came...to give his life a ransom for many. Matthew 20.28. It is by grace and not by works.
The Return of Christ: This SAME Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven shall so come in LIKE MANNER as ye have seen Him go into heaven. Acts 1.11
For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4.16-17
The New Birth: Except a man be BORN AGAIN he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3.3
As many as received Him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, ...which were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of GOD.John 1.12, 13
Eternal Life For The Believer: And I GIVE unto them eternal life and they shall never perish... John 10.28
He that believeth on the Son HATH everlasting life. John 3.36
