What We Believe

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Evangel Temple Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines. 


There is only One True God-revealed in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.  As God's Son, Jesus was both human and divine.

The Bible

The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

Fall of Man

Although originally good, man willingly fell into sin- ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.


Every person can have restored fellowship with God through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.

Church Ordinances

We practice two ordinances: Water Baptism by immersion and Holy Communion.

Baptism in the holy spirit

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers.

Evidence of Baptism

The initial physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is "Speaking in Tongues."


Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers become more Christlike.

The church

We believe "the Church" is the Body of Christ and consists of people who have accepted God's offer of redemption through Jesus Christ.

the ministry

A divinely called and scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the Church.

divine healing

Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today.

the rapture

This blessed hope is when Jesus raptures His Church prior to His return to earth (the Second Coming).

Millennial Reign of Christ

The Millennial Reign of Christ is when Jesus returns with His saints at His Second Coming and begins His rule over earth for 1,000 years.

Final Judgment

A final judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ.

New Heavens and New Earth

We believe and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him.


We believe in the sacredness of marriage between one man and one woman.


We believe in the Biblical principle of tithing.
