Our mission is to magnify Jesus Christ in such a way that souls are saved, restored, and redirected.
Jesus Christ is the Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Cornerstone, and Chief Apostle of Restoration Temple. Without uncertainty, He is the source of our Salvation, “for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
Have you been hurt in anyway, emotionally scared, or do you feel as though your life has been shattered by some event that was beyond your control? Has something occurred as a consequence of a bad decision you made, and now you’re at a point in life where you’re trying to gather your composure and revisit the possibility of living a productive life again? Are you tired of doing things your way, and you're ready to see if there is a better way, perhaps, God’s way? There’s good news for you. Jeremiah declared in Jeremiah 30:17, “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.”
The Lord Jesus Christ is waiting to restore you back to your original state, before things happened that were negatively impactful in your life. Not only does He want to restore you, but He wants to redirect you and show you where you need to be and what you need to be doing at this stage in your life, and to prepare you for what’s ahead. The Psalmist David wrote, “He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me..”(Psalm 23:3). By the teaching, preaching, and application of the Word of God, and by the presence of God in our midst and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Restoration Temple invites you to let this ministry be a part of your journey to restoration.
The name Restoration Temple of Jesus Christ derived from the 23rd Psalm of David, “He restoreth my soul…” On March 28, 2012, while in early morning prayer, Pastor Dan A. Smith, Jr., heard the call of God to Pastor. He continued to serve, evangelize, and soon thereafter served as an Interim Pastor.
In the Winter of 2015, the Lord began speaking to Pastor Smith about "launching out into the deep." He began to show him the need for restoration and revival in the surrounding areas. After taking time to seek God and Godly counsel, on October 9, 2015, Restoration Temple of Jesus Christ, Inc. was legally formed and founded.
The first and present location is in the town of Rocky Point. The first service was held on Thursday, January 7, 2016.
