EXALT

“In everything we do, we desire to exalt Jesus Christ!  We determine to preach the Word of God correctly and live by it!  We desire to be led by the Spirit of God and to live a life pleasing to our Father!  We aim to do as John 3:30 states, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Our goal is not to focus on ourselves, but to focus on the greatness of Christ!”   Philippians 2:5-11

EQUIP

“John 8:31 tells us that if we continue (obey) in the words of Christ then we are disciples “indeed” (no doubt).  Our goal at IBT is to train those in the church in the Word of God and encourage them to live as God’s Word instructs.  Not only will this help the believer grow in their faith, but it also will encourage them to reach the “lost” for Christ. Our aim is to teach the believer to be a defender of the Christian faith and to be passionate about sharing their faith.”

ENGAGE

“According to Matthew 28:18-20 we are to go into all the world with the good news of Jesus Christ!   Currently we have over 30 foreign mission works that we financially support on a monthly basis but we also desire to reach our local community.  We financially support 5 local ministries and have 3 free community events each year with the purpose of sharing the love of Christ to our neighbors.  These events are fun and designed to reach kids and families.  We desire to share God’s Word at all times but we also what to share life with people as well.  Sharing our lives will hopefully lead others to want new life through Jesus Christ! 

 

 
 

Our Pastor

One of my favorite Bible verses is John 10:10. This verse states, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, to kill, and to destroy: I am come that the might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” I love this verse because it specifically tells us what the devil’s plan is and what God’s plan is. The devil’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy and he seems to be doing a great job at that. However, God sent Jesus into the world to give us abundant life and to be made free from the death-grip of satan. My goal, and the goal for The Indianapolis Baptist Temple, is to tell people about freedom and new life with Jesus Christ! We also equip God’s disciples to reach our community for Him. If you are looking for a church like this please come visit and be a part of what God is doing on the Southside of Indy!

I was flipping through channels the other night and ended up watching the tail end of the kids movie “Polar Express”.  I’m sure many of you have seen the movie, but if not, the premise is centered around a little boy who takes an unexpected ride on the Polar Express that is headed to see Santa Claus.  This boy, because of hard things that have taken place in his life, has chosen not to believe in …

I know that I told this story at least once in a service and another time in a Bible study, but I would like to share it again and probably at the disproval of my son Brandon :)!  When Brandon was little he went through a time that he was very stubborn and would be a challenge to discipline!  Can any parents relate to to us on this?  One particular time that he was being difficult around age 4 or …

Message from Matt | December 10th, 2017

John the Baptist was by all accounts an interesting man!  His birth, recorded in Luke 1, was miraculous, given the age of his parents (Luke 1:7) and was similar to the birth of Isaac (Genesis 17, 21).  He lived in the desert most of his life (Luke 1:80), dressed in leather and camel hair clothing and ate locusts and wild honey for his food (Matthew …
