Beginnings. October 31st, 1979 marked the beginning of the Divine Mission the Lord gave Dusty Kemp and the small group of 40 believers calling themselves Bread of Life Church. The assignment: to Know Jesus and Make Him Known. For over three decades now, we have been pursuing His presence, studying the Word to become like Jesus, learning how to love, and trying to stay out of His way, as Jesus builds His church. The first 14 years, the church was located in rented facilities at 1450 West Belt N. which is now the West Sam Houston Tollway. The church quickly became known as a place to hear the Word of God taught as it was written, with an expectation for God to confirm His word with signs and wonders following.

Pastor Kemp’s daily radio program, Bread of Life, supplemented the outreach of the church, speaking to the greater Houston area for many years. In the late 1980’s, we began feeling the growing pains of being constrained by rented space. The Lord instructed us and led us to raise $1million to purchase our own building and land, not knowing where that would be. The week after achieving the goal, a 20 acre tract of land became available less than one mile from our location. The price was reduced because it was in foreclosure. We paid cash for the land, and had money left over to pay for our sanctuary. In 1993, Bread of Life Church moved onto its current location debt free! This has been the testimony of every success along our spiritual journey. They can be summed up by Psalms 118:23, “The Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.”


Into the 21st Century. In this rapidly changing world, we know that God and His Word never change. Our methods may change, but not the message. These are times like never before that we need sound doctrine, clear discernment, and our eyes firmly fixed on the Lord Jesus Christ. New Life is dedicated to being a light of God’s love and truth in the darkness until He comes. Today, we support missionaries around the world and on college campuses. Our LifeDonor outreach sends the extra bibles Christians have, to third world pastors who have none. There are many other opportunities in the planning stages even now that will give you an opportunity to have a part in changing the world for the Lord Jesus Christ!
