Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,


Dear friend, I pray that you may prosper in every way and be in good health. We are so excited what the Lord is doing in our ministry! Bass Temple was established in 1963 and founded by the late Superintendent Richard and Evangelist Ruby Lee Bass. Pastor Columbus Martin began his leadership tenured in 1984 and the Lord has blessed this ministry tremendously. Pastor Martin is a devoted husband to First Lady Josie Martin, a loving father of three children and son-in-law.

What an amazing and fantastic opportunity the Lord has allowed for us to come together to share in fellowship and praise. May we observe another wonderful opportunity to draw ever closer to God’s Grace and Light. Let us serve the Lord with gladness.

I pray that you are encouraged and motivated, even as you face various circumstances in your life.  We invite you to fellowship with us and experience the move of the Holy Spirit. Blessings and peace be upon you. “It’s just nice to be nice”.


Yours in Christ,


Pastor and First Lady Martin
