Our Story

How it all started...

The vision began on January 2, 1973, when Rev. Willie F. Jordan, Sr., formed a mission of eleven members at 7:30 pm and organized Jordan Temple Missionary Baptist Church, located at 1532 S. Pulaski Road, Chicago, IL., and three years later  relocated to 900 N. Lockwood, Chicago. Pastor Willie F. Jordan, Sr. yielded to the call of the Lord on January 12, 1993, and mounted on wings like an eagle and flew back home to be with the Lord. It was a sad moment in Jordan Temple‚Äôs history, but Pastor Jordan worked untiringly for his seat in the kingdom, and he deserved his crown of righteousness so elegantly described in 2 Timothy 4:8.

On February 28, 1993, Rev. Stephen Richardson became Pastor and with the mantle on his shoulders continued to advance the teaching of Jesus Christ and to preach the gospel. Jordan Temple has relocated from 900 N. Lockwood in Chicago, and now  operates from its Hillside campus, where believers and worshipers attend each week.

The Incredible Life Center building adjacent , at 4431 W. Roosevelt Rd,  is part of the Jordan Temple Hillside campus, where a community comes together to celebrate all aspects of life.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
