Temple Baptist Guardrails*

We are all ears

We actively listen to God’s leading through His Word and His Spirit.

We are serving T.A.L.L.

    We model Transparent, Authentic, Loving Leadership.

We are a community on mission

    We want to take the hill…together.

We are a laser not a flashlight

    We do less to efficiently focus our energy.

We are boldly moving

    We intentionally risk the status quo in pursuit of people.

We are under the microscope

    We inspect what we expect and learn from the results.

We are bridgebuilders

    We strive to make a difference not a point.
