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!

Discontentment – An Enemy of Faith and Togetherness

1 John 2:15-17 Versus Mark 12:29-31

  • World’s way: (lust/greed)
    • Lust of flesh, Lust of eyes, and pride of life
  • God’s way: (contentment/satisfaction)
    • Love God with everything
    • Love others as you love yourself

Greed/discontentment

  • Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu wrote 2,500 years ago: “There is no calamity greater than lavish desires, no greater …

Message From Scott | July 20, 2018

In one of his books, George Barna, a leading church growth consultant, tells about two men in their mid-thirties who find themselves one Sunday morning on a country club golf course. He describes them as “born-again Christians who have eliminated church life from their busy schedules.” Instead of attending church, they worship, as they put it, at the “Church on the Green.”

The Love of our Heavenly Father!

This past Sunday I read from Luke Chapter 15, Jesus’ parable about the prodigal son and his older brother.   I spoke about the brokenness in the lost son after he spent everything and realized that he needed to come back to the father.  We also read that the older son had a need for brokenness but couldn’t see it. &nbs …
