Our Beliefs

Temple Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist Church affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. We adhere to the doctrinal statement as published in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000. These doctrinal truths include the following core beliefs:

  • The Deity of Jesus Christ
  • The Substitutional Death of Jesus
  • The Bodily Resurrection of Jesus from the Grave
  • Salvation by Faith Alone Through Grace Alone
  • Inerrancy and Completeness of Scripture
  • The Sinfulness of Man
  • The Virgin Birth of Jesus
  • The Triune Existence of God
  • Eternal Security of the Believer
  • God’s Judgement of Man for Sin
  • Eternal Damnation for People who Reject Christ
  • Imminent Return of Christ to the Earth


In addition to these core beliefs, we desire to pursue the following Core Values:

  • Worship God
    “For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)
  • Value People
    “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you.”
    (John 15:12–14)
  • Live the Scriptures
    “But prove yourselves doers of the Word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.” (James 1:22-24)


  • Steward Faithfully
    “‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.’” (Malachi 3:10)
  • “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)
  • Lead By Example

    “If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you."  (John 13:14-15)

  • “Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us." (Philippians 3:17)
