ABOUT LEWIS AVENUE BAPTIST CHURCH
The Lewis Avenue Baptist Church of Temperance, Michigan, was founded in 1927 by a group of godly Bible believers who pulled out of the Northern Baptist Convention before it was popular to do so, over modernism in the mission boards, on the mission field and in the NBC schools. The battle was waged over the inspiration, inerrancy and authority of the Scriptures. From the very first, Lewis Avenue Baptist Church has stood in the tradition of independent, fundamental Baptist works. Its pastors have always been men of God with high standards of belief and conduct.
The church is located on 25 acres in Temperance, Michigan at the Michigan/Ohio border, a suburb of the greater Toledo Metropolitan area. The buildings comprise 78,000 square feet, including the auditorium, Sunday School building, an educational wing, both an elementary and high school wing and a gymnasium. An auditorium that seats 1300 was added and a second educational wing will add 58,000 square feet when completed.
On Wednesday, January 30, 2008 the people of Lewis Avenue Baptist church voted in Brother Steve Hobbins as their new pastor.
Under the leadership of Pastor Steve Hobbins the church has seen a renewed vision and fresh excitement that is obvious in the atmosphere here at Lewis Avenue Baptist.
