New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church has a rich history here in the Greenville and Mississippi Delta Community.
We were the first African American church in the city to have an established Usher Board. Being right on the Mississippi River banks, we also withstood the flood of 1927 that is an important documented event in the history of African Americans here in the Mississippi Delta. But through all the historic times and racial turmoil, we made it through with GOD’s Grace and Mercy!
