A Word From Our Pastor
Christ Temple is a growing, multicultural congregation of believers who have broken out of the mold of traditional religion to find a real relationship with God. Our church offers a friendly atmosphere, dynamic worship, anointed preaching, and relevant ministries that target each age group. Be our guest and discover all that God has for you! We look forward to seeing you in service soon.
-Pastor Jay Stirnemann
Christ Temple was started in 1978 when the founding pastor began conducting Bible studies in his home. The study quickly grew to a size that his living room could not contain anymore. The next step was to convert the two car garage attached to the home into a church building. This was quickly accomplished with help from members of the church. Christ Temple continued to grow and eventually purchased a building in 1980 located at 1905 South Main Street in Fall River, MA. In March of 1986, Rev. Jay Stirnemann was elected as pastor. His passion for reaching the community quickly ignited growth. An opportunity arose in 1995 for a much larger building to be purchased in Tiverton, RI. God blessed again and a dedication service was held on August 2, 1997 after a 14 month renovation. Christ Temple currently meets at this property located at 1198 Fish Road. We are eagerly anticipating what God has in store for our next stage of growth.
