Who We Are

Temple of Peace Church is a non-denominational Body of believers. The church was founded in 1993, and operates under the leadership of Pastor Karen L. Wilson. 

Temple of Peace serves as a refuge for those who seek a lasting relationship with Christ, rather than just a religious experience.  Our gifts serve to build families, singles, couples, and any one desiring a closer walk with God.. We believe in the power and presence of the Holy Spirit to use ordinary people to do the work of ministry, as we serve our extraordinary God!

Our church mission: "Pointing to Salvation, by Lifting up Christ", is based on John 12:32, " And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me." It is faith in this goal, that compels us to serve the Lord by focusing on 3 major areas of Christian development and service.
