Who we are

We are located in the Heart of Central Fl in the small town of Dundee. Our church was started in October 1952 in a small house across the street from our current location. We purchased the property we are on and started building. Our pastor Jim Lyle and his lovely wife Nina served here for 31 yrs and just retired May 2012. Our Associate Pastor Elton Ovitt was voted in as new pastor August 2012. He and his family have been members since Nov.1987. He and his lovely wife Yvonne are here to serve! We are a smaller church we still sing hymns and use the old King James version of the Bible. We currently support 27 missionaries who are serving on the mission field. Everyone is welcome to come by and give us a try, we would love to have you join our family!

Our Mission

"Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature:" Mark. 16:15

We believe that we should show our Savior's love to all even the lowliest of low. Look down on no one if it wasn't for His grace we would be in their shoes.

Baptist Temple of Dundee History

Founded in 1952

Beginning The Baptist Temple was started in a little house down the alley across from where it sits now. Pastor Jack Thomas was our first pastor. The first payment on the property was in July 1953. They broke ground in 1957 and completed in 1960. In 1981 Pastor Jim Lyle became pastor and during this time, we purchased more property which is how we expanded and were able to build our fellowship hall and day care center. In 2000 we had a vision to build a new building. We named it project 2007. Pastor Lyle 's dream was to build debt free, and retire upon completion, however in May of 2012 he retired after 31 years of faithful service. Pastor Ovitt is carrying on his vision by seeing this building completed. We are so close! Just waiting on the CO and we will move in!!!!!!

The power of Christian prayer May your light illuminate our hearts
Eternal God, this holy night is radiant with the brilliance of your one true light. May that light illuminate our hearts and shine in our words and deeds. May the hope, the peace, the joy, and the love represented by the birth in Bethlehem this night fill our lives and become part of all that we say and do. May we share the divine life of your son Jesus Christ, even as he humbled himself to share our humanity. Amen.
