In July of 2013 the Lord began to deal with Pastor Armstrong about Pastoring. He informed First Lady Armstrong of what God was speaking in his spirit. After much prayer and seeking the face of God Pastor Armstrong and First Lady Armstrong began to explore what it would take to start a ministry. God strategically placed people in their path to assist them in accomplishing the vison for the church.
While researching a name for the ministry they both knew it was to be a ministry where the lives of men and women could be restored through the power of the all mighty God, thus the name Restoring Lives Bible Fellowship Church was born. The Vision of the church would be to restore the lives of both the believer (the spiritually injured) and nonbelievers (the man that does not know Christ), and to bring them into the awareness of God’s unfailing love. This church would be a church founded on true love, love for God and love for God’s people. The church would not just talk of loving, but would rather model the true love of God.
On December 4, 2013 a Certificate of Formation was filed with the State of Texas and Restoring Lives Bible Fellowship Church was formed as a Nonprofit Organization. Pastor Armstrong was listed as Founder/President. No location had been determined for planting the church. While driving around looking at spaces for lease the doors seemed to be shut in every direction. One day while out driving Pastor Armstrong was led to look in the Garland area where he had attended services before. God lead him to our present location. After making some phone calls he was informed that a space had just been vacated which housed a church. God parted the waters and opened the door for where we are currently located. Pastor Armstrong and First Lady Armstrong began making preparations for the date and time of the first Service. There was a lot of work that needed to be done. God began to send help. Leading up to the first service there were nights where the soon to be members helped hang the curtains, set out the chairs, hung the pictures, etc… We spent long nights at the church making it ready. We enjoyed fun, fellowship and food. We all worked together to make the vision of Restoring Lives Bible Fellowship Church come to fruition.
On June 1, 2014 the inaugural service was held and the Lord added five (5) families to the church (the Brown, the Jackson, the Thompson, the Williams and the Winston families). These are the Charter members. The RLBFC family was under way. Bro. Rodney Williams took the helm as the first Deacon; Bro. LeCoreyon and Sis. Teneiseya Brown served as the first Ministers of Music and Sis Teronica Winston took the responsibility as our first Usher President. They all are currently serving in their respective ministries using their God given gifts and talents. Since our first service other ministries have been added and God continues to show his approval of this ministry and for this we are forever grateful. We have accomplished many milestones in this inaugural year and we know God has more in store for us. This church is on a mission to impact the world. As stated in our Motto we are working to restore lives one soul at a time.
