We invite you to experience Phillips Temple Church in person.

We look forward to meeting you and your family.


What kind of church is Phillips Temple Church?

Phillips Temple Church is a member of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church Denomination.


Membership in a depositional church carries a special privilege: it is the privilege of partnership. Our members are invited to join us in advancing the Kingdom of God through sound biblical teaching, discipleship, ministry outreach, and global missions.


What time and how long are your Sunday services?

Phillips offers one services on Sunday at 10:00am our services offer great worship music, a relevant message, a welcoming, loving atmosphere, and friendly people who are eager to meet you and connect with you.


Our services are virtually identical, so feel free to come at the service time that is most convenient for you.


Our services last approximately 1.45 hours. We recommend arriving about 15 minutes before the service to allow time for parking and seating.


What is your worship like?

Bring your Bible: Phillips is a bible based church. Worship through music is a high priority for Phillips, as we believe our praise ushers in the Holy Spirit. Our praise team and choirs minister worship songs with a full band. Our gifted musicians and singers also present original worship songs and music as they allow the Holy Spirit to flow through them.


We also believe in worshiping God through dance and drama. Phillips has a special focus in the creative arts. We use music, song, dance, drama, as well as technology, such as video presentations, to worship God and teach His word.


We are excited to use our anointed time of praise and worship as an avenue to worship God. We want everyone who comes through the door to experience the life changing power of worship through music, according to Psalm 100:1-4.
