About Us

Word of Life Church is a Interdenominational Full Gospel Ministry. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ instituted the local church for the primary purpose of uniting believers in fellowship and empowering the body for the work of the Kingdom. Our vision to fulfill Christ command to "Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations."  We do this by showing and sharing the Love of God to all people. Our desire to accomplish this is to Lead by Example. Therefore our mission statement is to Lead People into an Authentic Relationship with Jesus Christ. 

 
Word of Life Church of Garden City, KS was founded in December of 1982 by Gary Don Newman and his wife, Lenoir.  The first services where held at the Optimist Club building with about 30 people in attendance.  The church was then moved to the Hilton Inn where the ballroom was rented to facilitate the growing crowd.  In January of 1984, the church began renting a building at 518 N. 11th Street and within three years, purchased the building.
 
In 1984, 4.4 acres of land was donated to the church that would serve as its future building sight and new location.  On August 9, 1987, at 3004 North 3rd Street Garden City, a ground breaking ceremony was held, and actual construction began in October.  On February 12, 1989, the first service was held and has continued at this location. 

Word of Life Church will continue to be a source of spiritual life for not only Garden City but the surrounding areas and to the far corners of the globe until Jesus comes.  The Bible tells us that the work that Christ has begun in us, He will also keep and fulfill until the day of our Lord!
