Who we are, how we got started and where we’re headed
Our passion is to reach those who do not know the love of God and give them the good news that their lives can be changed, and that they can fulfill their true destiny and purpose by allowing the one who created them to set them on the course He has designed for them to live.
Spirit Temple Bible Church is a full gospel, spirit-filled, bible believing church. We are a multicultural fellowship of believers from different parts of the world, different walks of life, connected by the blood of Jesus Christ, the love of God in our hearts, and the presence of God in our lives.
We first began as a Bible study group at the home of Apostle Ese Duke in June 2013 with Apostle Ese Duke and family in attendance, As the word got out and people began to come to the home of Apostle Ese Duke to hear the teaching of God’s word with so much clarity and simplicity, the bible study group became a church just after the third meeting, the young church outgrew the family room and then the lower level of the home and it became obvious that we had to move from the home.
We moved out of the home and into a conference room of Comfort suites in Allentown. Our first Sunday worship service at the Comfort Suites was held on September 22nd 2013.
By June 1st, 2014, the church had out grown all the available space at the conference center, the Lord by the help of the Holy Spirit provided another space of over 5,500 square feet and the new church moved to the space located at 1901 S 12th street. Allentown.
With God faithfulness and the continuos growth of the ministry, the church started praying for a new location as the current location was becoming too crowded on sunday mornings.
