A Home for Your Family



Jess and Grace Enochs

Members since June 1993

We had moved to Knoxville from St. Louis and were looking for a fundamental Baptist church that was sound in doctrine and music and believed in winning men and women to Christ. Since we are both natives of India, we were also looking for church with a vision for world evangelism. That is what we found when we came to Temple.

We are grateful for the opportunities to serve Christ in a number of ways throughout the church. Our church home has ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every member of your family.




David and Kari Arsenault

Members since January 2006

We knew the Lord was leading us to join the church. The Bible messages, the beautiful and God-honoring music, and the emphasis on the family convinced us that this was the place for us. This is a church with a great vision for reaching our community and far beyond.

There are so many blessings our family has received since we’ve been here! We hear consistent weekly Bible preaching and teaching, we have the privilege to serve the Lord in our 1st grade Sunday School class, we have confidence that our daughters are being taught God’s Word by dedicated teachers who love Christ, there is a wonderful liberty throughout the church, and Pastor and Mrs. Sexton know and love our children.

Come visit, we know you’ll feel at home!




Escoe and Peggy Gordon

We are a part of this church family because it has a heart for reaching the lost, where the Bible is faithfully preached, and where our family could grow. There so many wonderful Christian people here who have become our dear friends through the years.

Our children have been marvelously blessed in so many ways. They both graduated from Temple Baptist Academy and met their mates here. Both are actively serving the Lord here at Temple with their families.

Are you looking for a church home with strong Bible preaching and teaching and Christ-honoring music? This is a church where you will be challenged to find your place in God’s will and to serve Him whole-heartedly.




David and Julie Ryan

Members since 2000

We came to Temple looking for a church that would teach and preach the Bible, be mission-minded, and give fellowship with like-minded young Christian families.

It is wonderful to be a part of a church family that believes and teach the Word of God with no apology, and yet with a Christ-like spirit. We are blessed to be confident that what our children are being taught at church will agree with what we teach them at home from God’s Word. The many young families with whom we have become friends are such a source of strength and encouragement to be us and our children.

Our church is a caring family that is determined to evangelize our community and the world with the gospel of Christ.
