Our Story

How it all started...

Temple Baptist started in 1956 as a church partner in the Southern Baptist Convention in downtown Blue Ridge.
In 2008, we moved from our downtown location to our current location in Morganton, when we merged with Appalachia Baptist Church. 

Our Vision

Our Purpose

Our desire at TBC is to be a Great Commission Church, seeking to make much of Jesus in all we do.  We hope to be the light of Christ in our community, nation and to the ends of the earth.
