Over twenty-five years ago, leaders of Smith Baptist Association envisioned a new church near the University of Texas campus in Tyler. The association purchased a tract of land on Spur 248 with our future in mind.
Our vibrant new congregation came into being in early 1997 as the result of a group of Christians praying and sharing together. With this vision for establishing a new church in southeast Tyler, the group started meeting for worship and Bible study at Grace Community High School.
With confidence in God and concern for the spiritual needs of our city, the people of The Woods are seeing this vision become a reality. With the leadership of our interim pastor, Charles G Dodson, and the faithful ministry of the men and women of TWBC, our fellowship continues growing in number and reaching out in ministry to the people of Tyler.
The Woods Baptist Church congregation has a loving, positive spirit. Our people are willing to help and serve. Each member believes in our mission – to minister to our community in the name and spirit of Jesus Christ.
As a church family, we believe the love of God is clearly expressed in the person of Jesus Christ. We have no greater joy or higher calling than to share His love with others.
