Visitor and Guest Information

Thank you for your interest in Praise Temple of Restoration International. Whether you plan to visit our church or just want to visit us on the web, this page is designed to help your visit be more meaningful.

In these days, Church attendance is more vital than ever. Hebrews 10:24-25 says, “Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.”

If you are looking for a church family, understand that your choice of a church will have a huge impact on your family and your personal walk with God. At Praise Temple, we endeavor to REACH -- TEACH -- TRAIN and SEND God's people with the message of Restoration ... not condemnation.

We invite you to worship with our congregation on Sunday or through the week in any of our various services and events.
