The Christian life is not meant to be lived out in isolation. The Bible teaches that the Christian life is a life lived together as the church—a local body of believers, the family of God, in covenant community. Church membership is our way of identifying and affirming who joins together in covenant community at Temple.
Next Steps in Membership
Membership at Temple is a two-step process. First, we encourage anyone new to attend our four week membership class. These 4 week sessions will give you an opportunity to meet our pastors and leaders, as well as other church members who live in your community. In these classes we discuss the vision and values of Temple Baptist Church, as well as what the Bible says on a variety of important topics, including Biblical descriptions of the church and the responsibilities of church members. 2nd, at the end of this 4 week class session, all participants are given an opportunity to meet with an elder, and sign our membership covenant. Lunch is always provided.
