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 four worship experiences.  Services at 8:15 and 9:30 in the Classic Venue are led by our orchestra and choir.  At 9:30 and 11 in the Modern Venue, services are led by our band.  Lead Pastor Joe Loughlin, Teaching Pastor Evan Duncan, or a member of our teaching team will speak live at 8:15, 9:30 and 11, and you can find community in our small groups called Life Groups. These meet at 8:00, 9:30 and 11 to answer and discuss questions about the Bible.

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