In December of 1999, the State of Michigan licensed Tree of Life Bible Fellowship as an official church body. In February 2000, seven adults began to meet as a core group to pray, study and implement the beginning stages of the church. Finally, on June 4, 2000, the first worship service was held at Lawrence Technological University in the Architecture building auditorium. Thirty-three people were in attendance that first day. In March of 2016, Tree of Life Bible Fellowship moved to its new location in Royal Oak, Michigan and in June of 2016, we celebrated our sixteenth anniversary.
