Our Mission

Temple exists to make disciples who love the gospel, grow in community, and live on mission.


Our Story

Temple Baptist Church began in the 1950’s when God placed it on the heart of a few individuals to start a new church in Gainesville. Several people came together to pray and the church began. Over the last 65+ years Temple has had a rich legacy of Biblical preaching, disciple making, and a warm fellowship. Although, Temple has had a rich history, we believe that she has an even brighter future. 


Our Core Values

Love the Gospel
We believe that the Gospel is really good news! It is the good news that God has accomplished through Jesus–in His life, death, & resurrection–to secure forgiveness of sins & life for all who will repent of their sin and believe in Jesus as Lord. We believe the gospel isn’t just the good news that saves us but transforms us everyday.

Grow in Community
You were made for community because you are made in the image of God who has eternally existed in community. Spiritual growth best happens in a community of believers who love, encourage, and challenge one another to reach their full potential in Christ.

Live on Mission
We have been rescued and redeemed by a loving and missional God who has called us to live on mission with Him. Therefore, we want to live on mission exactly where He has placed us—where we live, work, and play.
