History

New Horizon Baptist Church was founded in September 1987 by Bishop Ronnie C. Crudup, Sr., who was instructed by the Holy Spirit to, “go establish a church that would be on a new horizon.”

The congregation started with 56 charter members and was blessed of God to experience steady growth.

During the first three years of its existence, the congregation met in a variety of rented facilities.

In September 1990, the congregation purchased and worshipped in its first building located on Belvedere Drive in South Jackson.

In January 1998, the membership voted to delete the term Baptist from the church’s name and was known as New Horizon Church.

In January 2003, the congregation voted to become affiliated with The Fellowship of International Churches (F.O.I.C.) and to become known as New Horizon Church International.

In November 2009, the congregation purchased and moved into its present location on Ellis Avenue in Jackson.
