We Live, We Love,

About Us

Faith Temple Baptist Church is located just south of Waco, in the small, rural community of Lorena, TX. We serve the Lorena community as well as the “Greater Waco Area”. FTBC began in 1975 as a mission work while meeting in a Mrs. Baird’s Discount Bakery Store. In 1978 we were organized into a New Testament Baptist Church and began ministering out of our first church building at 1712 Lexington St. in Waco, which would be our home for 34 years. In the fall of 2012, after the completion of a new church building, we began a new ministry at our present location on Old Lorena Rd.

FTBC is an independent Baptist church with strong ties to the Baptist way of life. We seek to grow and reach out to the surrounding community through the Lord, in our relationships with others and our love through ministry in Lorena and the world. We invite everyone to come experience God’s love and grow with us. It is our prayer that God will touch and bless everyone as we share Jesus with the community and surrounding areas.


Our Beliefs

  • The Bible is the inspired word of God and that it is without error or exception.

  • In the Trinity, which is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

  • That Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary and he is the Son of God.

  • In the New Testament and that we no longer live under the law of the Old Testament.

  • That Jesus fulfilled the law when he died on the cross, that he shed his blood for all mankind, and that through him we might all be saved.

  • That the scriptures teach Christian Baptism.

  • That civil government is of divine appointment for the interests of good and are to be prayed for.
