About Us

Who We Are

Since 1923, the congregation of Temple Baptist Church has been worshiping and serving God together, ministering to families and individuals in our surrounding neighborhoods and the greater Wilmington area.

Though we're not a large church, we're trying to touch our community and our world with God's love. How?

Empowered by the Holy Spirit and guided by Scripture, we're striving to know Christ and to make Him known by being an authentic community of followers of Jesus Christ that embodies His presence to the world through our worship, our witness, and our way of life as His disciples. Through informal contacts, special events, and ongoing ministries, along with prayer and financial support for and involvement in local, national, and global missions, we work to share the good news of Jesus Christ through deeds of love and words of witness.

We also seek to minister to the wider community through a strategic partnership with the YMCA of Southeastern North Carolina, which manages and operates our Christian Activity Center, located at 709 George Anderson Drive in Wilmington, as a branch facility. Alongside the offerings of the Midtown YMCA at Temple Baptist Activity Center, we host opportunities there for Christian formation and growth, as well as classes and conversations for those who want to explore the Bible and the Christian faith.

Our web site will help you learn more about us and our ministries, but worshiping with us will help you know us better.  When you worship with us, we believe that you will find:

If you're looking for a church home, we'd love to have you worship with us at Temple!

Our main campus is located at the corner of 18th and Market streets in the Historic District, where we gather for Bible study at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings, followed by worship at 11 a.m. We also have Wednesday evening activities beginning with supper at 5:30 p.m. (during the traditional school year), followed by prayer and Bible study for adults and activities for children at 6:15 p.m.

We hope to see you soon!
