New Jerusalem Christian Fellowship is an independent non-denominational
church of Christians united with the desire
to serve God and His people.
"But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his
if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast." Hebrews 3:6
Founded as a Full Gospel Church in the Jackson area in 1920,
relocated to the Addison area in 1990 to better follow an expanding
vision of ministry to the southern Michigan counties
of Jackson, Lenawee and Hillsdale.
Experiencing the moving of God in our midst has led us to believe Him for
seeing many in this tri-county area achieve a fullness in Christ through the ministry He has given us.
A governing body of Elders lends a broad base of support to our Pastor, Bob Norman, and is a source of
additional ministry and leadership for the members.
