The Lubbock Texas Temple is the 109th operating temple built by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the third temple built in Texas. It shares a 2.7-acre site with the Lubbock Texas Stake Center. Although west Texas is a stark desert largely covered with sagebrush and oil fields, Lubbock, with a population of nearly a quarter of a million people, forms the populous hub of a wheel of southwestern cities known for various industries. The Lubbock Texas Temple serves Latter-day Saint congregations in west Texas and southeastern New Mexico.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has had a presence in Texas since the 19th century, when Mormon pioneers settled in the eastern part of the state. Church membership grew in rural areas at first and then spread to urban areas. In 1967 the Lubbock Texas Stake (similar to a Catholic diocese) was established. The Lubbock Texas Temple is the first temple in west Texas. Three other Mormon temples have been built in Texas, including the Dallas Texas Temple (dedicated in 1984), the Houston Texas Temple (dedicated in 2000) and the San Antonio Texas Temple (dedicated in 2005).
