The Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple was announced on 14 March 1999, to be built on land purchased years earlier for the building of a meetinghouse, along with an additional parcel of land donated by the sellers. The additional land was originally used as a baseball field by local church members.

Faust, second counselor in the First Presidency, dedicated the Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple on July 30, 2000.
