Jesus gave his disciples a mission to go to the ends of the earth and spread the gospel to every tribe and tongue. As a church we are focused on expanding God's Kingdom, not building our own. Our mission as a church goes beyond our local congregation reaching into our community and the the ends of the globe. Temple has a long history of community outreach, overseas missions, short term missions, church planting and partnering with organizations commited to meeting the needs of the poor, fatherless and the widows. Temple gives over 15% of it's annual budget to support missions, church planting and community outreach locally and globally.
