Miracle Temple Adopts New Name, Purpose
The Miracle Temple church in Baltimore recently changed its name to Miracle City church. The change came after church leaders discussed how the church could become more outreach focused.

“I began sensing that a name change would help us better articulate our mission. After all, they say the first impression is the lasting one,” shares Pastor David Franklin.
Miracle Temple began in 1968 with 10 charter members who had a passion for service and evangelism. “In those early days, the small group of believers trusted God for the impossible and day after day, miracles continued to happen in southwest Baltimore,” says Franklin.The official relaunch date is January 30. That day they also launch their 100,000 Touches Outreach Campaign, where they plan to serve 100,000 people in one year. The campaign will begin with 30 consecutive days of service and other church-wide and individual projects throughout the year.
“We feel called to be part of seeing miracles happen, not simply in a building, but all throughout the city,” says Franklin.
