Who We Are

I am Pastor Sridhar [Sri], I came to Christ at the age of 17 in 1996 and went to Bible School in 1998 to learn about God; from there, the mission began. I have spent the last 25 years in ministry teaching in Bible schools, working alongside a senior pastor, evangelizing, and pastoring. When life appeared to be settled, God roused it once more to begin the new path of Church Planting ministry. To prepare myself, I attended Liberty School of Divinity for an M.Div., and when the time came, the Lord sent me to India to start the Church. In 2017, I returned to my birthplace of Vijayawada after graduating. I ve been preparing for the pioneering work with my wife, Ramya, ever since. After nearly five years of trying, we have chosen to acquire the land and build a church to do our church-planting work. Finally, on December 25th, 2022, Ramya and I will be able to open the Maranatha Faith Temple. We began ministering to Telugu-speaking folks with just me and my wife and have grown to about 30 attendants. The Maranatha Faith Temple at Mangalagiri, is a part of Amaravathi, New Capital Region of Andhra Pradesh, India. We intend to reach out to many people in the near future through Gospel meetings, social and community activities. Like-mindedness can be a part of the Lord s work, and you can work together to carry out the Great Commission. Prayers are much appreciated.

Our Vision

Faith Temple was founded with the purpose of "Reaching many with the Gospel" and "helping many to Revive and Renew their relationship with Christ through the Word of God.".

Our Mission

Our goal is to carry out the four Biblical mandates for the Church: Worship, Fellowship, Discipleship, and Evangelism.


House of God

We have begun construction on the building where Faith Temple s Sunday services will begin in October 2022. The date has not yet been set, as it depends on the construction and the difficulties in completing it.
The construction is funded with 55% of the bank loan, and the rest must be raised, and we appreciate your help in completing the House of God. You can see the latest updates in the gallery, which is updated every week or so. Please pray for and participate in the Lord s work.
