Get To Know Us!
Our Mission & Vision
The mission of the Indianapolis Baptist Temple is to love God, to love others, and to magnify the name of Jesus Christ. The vision of our church is to preach the gospel to every man, woman, boy and girl, baptize them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the things Jesus Christ commanded of us.
We believe church is about people! We focus on developing personal relationships which lead to spiritual transformation. We believe a church that cares for people will also care for their spiritual well-being.
Where Can I Serve?
In some churches, committees have meetings and make decisions which decide the actions of other people. In contrast, Ministry Teams are groups that actually do ministry. Teams start with the people and build the ministries around the gifts of those individuals.
God has placed the church in the position of carrying the gospel to the world and equipping Believers for service. Ministry teams provide tools for ministry action and helps equip Believers to reach the world for Jesus Christ.
We have Five Ministry Teams at IBT.
1. MISSIONS TEAM
The Missions Ministry exists as a way for members of IBT to fulfill the church’s calling to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world.
2. MAGNIFICATION TEAM
Psalms 34:3 proclaims, ” O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together”.
We believe that everyone in the church should be involved in magnification and worship. So, whether your interest lies in the choir, instrumental music, drama, visual arts, the praise team, or just singing to The Lord with all your heart, magnification and worship is for you!
The Magnification Team is responsible to oversee and plan our weekend services, special worship emphasis events and provide excellent music for worship.
3. MEMBERSHIP TEAM
New Parents, College Students, Loss of mate by death, Loss of mate by divorce, Weddings and Funerals, Pastoral Care, Hospital Visitation, and Food and Clothing
4. MATURITY TEAM
Bible studies, Small growth groups, Church wide spiritual growth campaigns, Devotional guides and materials, and other resources to help believers
5. MINISTRY TEAM
God has given each member of His body one or more special abilities, which are to be used for the purpose of unifying the body of Christ and for the growth of God’s Kingdom. We do not choose which gifts we will receive. God bestows these gifts upon us through the work of the Holy Spirit.
We live in the era of the Mega-Church. Some believe the bigger the church, the better the church. However, our philosophy of church building is different. Rather than build one large church in a central location, its our desire to plant churches in every corner of our city. In fact, we have a goal to plant 25 churches in the city of Indianapolis. We believe its a much more effective way to reach people with the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
To date IBT has planted 23 churches. 7 of those churches are still affiliated with IBT.
