Temple Baptist Church
Temple Baptist Church, located in Jacksonville NC, is great Eastern Seaboard church in our movement. Pastor Michael Johnson has recently taken the helm as the pastor from his dad in early 2016. Since then, major changes have occurred in the church. Most importantly, doctrinal changes that mirror true Biblical doctrine occurred. Their website statement of faith now says:
Salvation is by grace through faith, Salvation cannot be earned by… repenting of your sins.
We believe in the Eternal Security of the believer. OSAS
Life begins at conception.
We believe only in the local church.
We believe in a Literal Hell.
No sodomite (homosexual) will be allowed to attend or join Temple Baptist Church.
Amen! Pastor Johnson has been following our movement for a while now. He stood up for Pastor Jimenez during the media attacks in regards to the Orlando Massacre. Also, back in 2014, his congregation received a copy of New World Order Bible Versions. They watched it as well as discussed it church wide. His church is a great example for any church in the old IFB movement to following in turning around to the things of God. Check out their official website @ http://www.templebaptistjacksonville.com
