Thank you for visiting the First Baptist Church Temple website. Here you will find a group of people who are committed to encountering God and impacting lives through worship, study, service, relationships, and how they live their lives.


You will find a wide range of ministries and groups devoted to serving Christ at First Temple. Check out our Life Groups, ministries, missions to learn more about who we are and how you can be involved.

You’re invited to our campus where you can find something for every age . This includes our giant indoor playground, gymnasium, and our cafe where you can get coffee, food and your favorite specialty drink.

Each Sunday morning, we offer three worship experiences.  Services at 8:15 and 9:30 in the Worship Center feature classic hymns and worship songs.  At 9:30 in the Power Plant and 11:00 in the Worship Center, services are driven by vibrant modern worship.  Lead Pastor Joe Loughlin or Teaching Pastor Evan Duncan speak live at 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00, and you can find community in our small groups called Life Groups. These meet at 8:00, 9:30 and 11:00 to answer and discuss questions about the Bible.

We can’t wait to see you at First Temple!
