The Baptist Temple is incorporated as a Southern Baptist church. We have been joyfully serving our Lord, each other, and our neighborhood for over 60 years. Even though the times we live in have changed and we are not as big of a congregation as we used to be, the heart and desire of our church to share the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all men remains the same.
We believe and accept the Bible as the divinely inspired, infallible, inerrant, and living Word of God. Our pastor and our congregation do not sit in judgment of the Bible as many in these "modern" times seem to do, and then change its clear meaning. The Bible sits in judgment of us and reveals the truth about the existence and true nature of God, and that He loves each of us personally and unconditionally.
God proved His love for each of us over 2,000 years ago when He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to suffer and die for every sin we ever have, or ever will, commit against our Creator. This Jesus, who died on Calvary and was resurrected three days later on Easter morning is the only way to know and have personal salvation, peace in our soul, a daily living purpose and an eternal hope that can never be taken from a person who trust in, and walks with the Savior.
You are truly welcome at Baptist Temple and we hope to see you soon! If you have any question about God, or us, or if you just want to talk about any life issue, our Pastor loves to counsel with people and he would be more than happy to speak with you if you would like to set up an appointment.

According to the National Weather Service, winter weather too often catches people unprepared. Researchers say that 70 percent of the fatalities related to ice and snow occur in automobiles, and about 25 percent of all winter related fatalities are people that are caught off guard, out in the storm.
Are YOU prepared for the snow and ice?
You should be very careful on the snow and ice, using rock salt to melt it, and sand to improve traction.
Make sure that if the roads are bad, you drive only when necessary. It is better to be safe at home than in a ditch somewhere. If you do drive, make sure that you bring your cell phone, and that the battery is fully charged. If you get stuck, use your phone to call for help.
Wear clothing in layers.
