Church dedicated after attack by ETX arsonists

TYLER, TX (KLTV)- An East Texas Church celebrates their first service today in their new church, after it was burned to the ground by arsonists more than a year ago.

Tyland Baptist Church was one of the first churches burned by arsonists, Daniel McAllister and Jason Bourque, in January 2010.

The 11,000 square foot church took a total of 18 months to rebuild.

Pastor David Mahfood says the congregation has become very united since the church burning.
