Baptist Temple has a variety of ministries to help in fulfilling the Great Commission. Each of our ministries, from the children to the seniors, is committed to teaching and preaching the Word of God. It is our desire that God’s people will get involved in the work and help to “teach others also.”
Each Sunday morning we go throughout the city of Bartlesville picking up children and young people. It is our desire that through this ministry we will be able to show them the love of Christ and give them the gospel through Sunday School classes and Junior Churches. If you or your children are in need of transportation please contact the church office at (918) 333-4440.
We have a growing youth department with workers that are committed to the youth and love working with the young people. Each year we attend youth camp which gives the opportunity for young people to get away from the distractions of the world and hear from God through powerful preaching and spirit-filled music. They also enjoy activities throughout the month allowing them to develop friendships not only with young people from their church, but from other churches around the country as well. The young people also have opportunity to attend youth rallies around the state every couple of months, as well as various youth activities closer to home.
Infant-Toddlers Our new nursery facilities are fully equipped and staffed by trained volunteers. They are committed to your child’s well-being and growth. You can be confident that your child will be well taken care of in this beautiful facility.
3 and 4 Year Olds This is the first of a classroom-type setting. Each week your child will be with the same teacher and learn from a prepared Bible lesson plan. The purpose is to expose them to the gospel and teach them the principles of the Faith. They also have a time of singing where they learn Bible songs to help them in their spiritual growth.
Kindergarten – 6th Grade Your child is assigned to a Sunday School class and then to a Children’s Church specifically designed for their age. They will learn the good news of Jesus Christ and how He died for their sins that they may have eternal life. Activities are planned throughout the year for each age group.
Junior Church 3 Years – 5th Grade Each Sunday morning the young people will have another opportunity to sing Bible songs and hear the gospel of Christ and be taught basic Bible principles.
The music ministry of Baptist Temple is based on a traditional and hymn style that is not boring or complacent. We firmly believe that based upon the Scriptures, when dealing with church music, God is our audience. It is about Him, not us! This is the driving thought for our music program. We have chosen not to conform to the modern trends of music that appeal to the emotions and the flesh; instead we base our music on that which causes us to think about God and not ourselves. It is our desire that through the music of Baptist Temple, God would be pleased, and His creation would be humbled and contrite before the almighty God. Something that pure emotionalism could never achieve.
Ladies Ministries (TEA time)
TEA stands for Teaching, Exhorting, and Admonishing. Our ladies meet once a month and have special activities planned throughout the year. We believe it is vitally important for our ladies to build relationships and encourage one another. (Titus 2:3-5)
We firmly believe in supporting missions both at home, domestically and across the world. We currently support missionaries and missions projects in Oklahoma, across the United States and around the world. We believe in God’s command to preach the gospel to every creature and we are endeavoring to do our part to propagate the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world.
