A note from Pastor David: On July 21, 2019, I preached my very first sermon here as the new Senior Pastor of Temple Baptist Church (click here to listen). As a part of that message, I laid out 6 areas of ministry that we as a church would focus on going forward.  I laid out the following direction for our congregation using TEMPLE as an acrostic:

  • T: Teach the Bible in a relevant and loving way
  • E: Equip people to live missionally and leverage their influence for the gospel
  • M: Make Jesus known both across the street and around the world
  • P: Pursue Jesus daily through passionate worship and prayer
  • L: Love and serve our community in practical ways
  • E: Eliminate our debt and be a good steward of our facilities

I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ. (Philemon 1:6)

Giving FAQs

Why We Give

As a church, we believe that we are called to respond to the generosity of the gospel by giving extravagantly to the progress of the gospel in our community and world. Biblical generosity is not about meeting budget needs.It is about a rich and trusting relationship with a living God. We express our faith and love to Him by honoring Him as the source of everything we have. Scriptural giving is performed with regularity, from the first portion of all we are given, as a proportion of our income, cheerfully, and without pressure or manipulation.

What is Tithing?

Tithing is our starting place in giving. The Bible teaches us about a baseline standard for giving: the tithe (a word that literally means a “tenth”). When we give the first 10% of our income through the local church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others. God also encourages us to give offerings beyond our tithe to specific projects at our local church and to other organizations and causes that we personally believe in.
