Greater New Light Baptist Church

Dr. Eric R. Jackson, Greater New Light Baptist Church

The Greater New Light Baptist Church was formed in 1966 by former members of Revelation Baptist Church. Initially, the group met in their homes, the Old Melrose YMCA, and the Metropolitan C.M.E. annex until they could purchase their own property on North Crescent Avenue in North Avondale. Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, who fought along with Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Birmingham, Alabama, was their first pastor.
