The Rasbeary family was sent out of the Trinity Baptist Church of Arlington, Texas, pastored at the time by Dr. Bob W. Smith, to start a new church in the Wylie area. On October 1, 2000, the church held its first service with 11 in attendance. The church grew steadily and by the end of the first year had purchased an existing church property just north of downtown Wylie. This property included an auditorium, a two-story building, and an unfinished gym. From the first service with 11 people, the ministry of the church has increased in many different directions. We here at LBC praise the Lord Jesus Christ for His goodness to us, and look forward to our best days yet to come.
Below are some pictures from the “early days” of our church.
