A message from
Our Pastor & First Gentleman
Rev. Bernadine Waterman
Deacon Reginald D. Waterman
Welcome February, a month filled with love, joy and God’s abundant blessings. It is also the month of celebration: Our Black History. The month in which the African American culture is highlighted for the many accomplishments, success stories, victories and achievements of past and present men and women whose backs we stand upon today.
February, the month we celebrate Love! Love for one another whether it is an intimate love between a man and a woman, a cherished friendship, a kindred love towards our family, that special love for our children or just a reason to love on self. Perhaps, it is that special time to show more love to Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ while asking Him to be your Valentine!
February, the shortest month of the year has been referred to as the border between winter and spring. The shortest month with an extra day in this new year and new season to be thankful for, an extra day to be joyful in. For us everyday that we see is a brand new day. A day that we have never seen before and a day that we will never see again. So let each new day you see in February carry the theme of love, walking proudly in your heritage as an African American knowing that it is God who made you and created you in His own image to be as beautiful as you are!
Pour out your love on Jesus this month and offer yourself, as Scripture instructs us to do, “as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service!” Amen
Happy Black History Month & Happy Valentine’s Day❤️
Blessings, love and peace,
Pastor Waterman, First Gentleman Deacon Waterman & First Family

The Year of Transparency & Transition
Our Doctrinal Statement
We the, Polite Temple Baptist Church, believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God in doctrine and life & that Jesus Christ was 100% man and was 100% God manifested in the flesh, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary.
We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) and all are in need of God's salvation through Jesus Christ.
The Holy Trinity
We believe in the Triune God; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus Christ bore our sins in His own body on Calvary's Cross. The sacrificial offering of His life & His precious blood. God the Father accepts as full payment for the penalty of our sins. Through faith in Him, God grants the believer the forgiveness of sins & eternal life.
