Bus Ministry

The Bible says in Matthew 19:14, "But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."  Desiring to give everyone an opportunity to attend church and learn more about our Savior Jesus Christ and His love, we began a ministry that makes this possible.

We consider it a real honor for parents to allow us to bring their children to our services. If you would like more information about our bus ministry or you would like for us to bring you child to our services on one of our buses you can contact us by phone at: (540) 380-3567; or you can email us at:

Chaplain Ministry

We believe that our Law Enforcement Professionals have never been more important to our nation and security than they are today. They serve as the buffer between our well-being and lawless terrorism. The attacks on our nation are not over, and it is our Police Officers who will protect and defend us, even if it costs them their lives.

Christians must be faithful to pray for the safety and encouragement of our men and women of law enforcement every time we hear a siren; every time we pass a police officer who has someone pulled-over on the street. These are opportunities to put the power of prayer into action.

It is the duty and privilege of the local church to be in prayer for all our officers.

Our pastor serves as the officers chaplain for the Roanoke County Sheriff's Department, as well as the Western Virginia Regional Jail.

Making A Difference Publications

We have been instructed to go into all the world with the Gospel.  One way we try to help in carry out this commission is by providing print and audio materials.

Some of the materials that we have include Sunday School lessons, Sermons, and Bible Institute materials.  See the materials available at: Making a Difference Publications

Manna Ministry

The manna ministry is a food ministry to help families in need of food. 


Jesus gave this commission to His disciples:   "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:"

Just before He ascended into heaven, Jesus spoke again to His disciples, and instructed them, "... and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."

Temple Baptist Church fulfills the Lord's commission and obeys His instructions to go to all nations, even to the remotest part of the earth through the support of home and foreign mission
work- what we call "Missions" for short.

Missions is the work of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ in and beyond our own community and to distant lands. 

Nursing Home Ministry

Ministering to those who are unable to get out to come to church is an important part of reaching our community for Christ. Every month, we conduct services at local nursing homes, and minister to the residents in the form of preaching and singing.

Roanoke Valley School of the Bible

It is our desire to train the lives of individuals to better
serve our Lord, to help instill in their lives convictions concerning the Bible, salvation, holy living, the authority of the local church, separation from the world to Christ, and to invest our lives in preparation for His coming.

We are under a divine directive to commit to others those things that have been committed to us.  The education offered is for the training of full time Christian workers, but is also encouraged for the lay person as well - anyone who wants to have a better working knowledge of the Word of God.

We are living in a world of constant change.  It is a blessing to know that we offer to you a learning institution that is standing firm on the unchanging Book.

Soul Winning & Visitation

The goal of the soul winning ministry is to fulfill the great commission by reaching lost people in our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, encouraging them to be baptized, and attend our services.  By regular attendance of services, they will be taught through the preaching and teaching of the Word of God.

Sunday School

The Bible calls us to teach and learn! While Jesus didn't take attendance as children and adults gathered around him or call such gatherings "Sunday school", his words and actions clearly teach that learning and faithfulness are intertwined.

The purpose of Sunday School is to change lives for Jesus Christ by evangelizing the lost and teaching those who respond to the Gospel through our classes.  This is the Great Commission.

We offer a fully graded Sunday School for children and adults.
