New Life Worship Center began as a dream when 18 people met with Pastor Rudy Bond late October 2002. The group had compiled a list of over 150 people looking for a Charismatic/Pentecostal church that focused on the Holy Spirit.
On November 3, 2002, New Life Worship Center officially began with 285 people and held services at the Sheraton Hotel in Tyler. Because of great growth, the church had to move to the Trane building.
While holding services in the Trane building, we purchased property on Highway 69 South in Tyler and in 2005 erected a beautiful contemporary church building. In 2009 11,000 square feet was added to the building which provided more classrooms and staff office space.
In 2018 a new 2-story Family Life Center with over 30,000 square feet was completed and added. This large facility houses a new youth center, additional classroom space, a large gymnasium with multiple basketball courts, and much more. This Family Life Center provides additional facilities for family, student, and children’s ministries to grow and expand as well as a great venue for various community events and activities.
New Life Worship Center is a Spirit-filled church affiliated with the Church of God International in Cleveland, Tennessee which is one of the oldest and largest Pentecostal denominations in the world.
