      After having pastored several traditional churches through the years God called Pastor James & Mrs. Cindy to step out in faith and plant a new church in the College Hill community of Texarkana, AR.   May 2008 was the first service.  With the help of some family and a few friends the church was birthed in the community in an old warehouse type building at 915 East Street. 

     In partnership with Shiloh Baptist Church - Texarkana, AR acting as our "mother church" as well as partnering with the Arkansas Baptist State Convention the church began to meet, worship and reach out to the community. Through all these years God has been so good to Life House Church of Texarkana.  Many souls have been saved, lives changed, addictions broken, people fed, clothed and touched through the ministry of Life House.  Without a doubt we can say GOD DID IT ALL!

    Today Pastor James has the blessing of serving with some great people at Life House Church of Texarkana.
