Founder: Bishop John W. Lee & Mother Virgie Lynn Lee

Brief Church History

In 1967, Bishop John W. Lee founded Christ’s Church on Kerr Street in Columbus, Ohio. The Lord Jesus Christ’s Church was charted in September 1972 and settled at its present location at 634 Gibbard Avenue. Bishop reasoned that since Jesus said “on this Rock I will build my church,” he would re-name the Church, The Lord Jesus Christ’s Church.

In 1973 Bishop Lee and The Lord Jesus Christ’s Church joined the Lighthouse Churches under Bishop David L. Brewer, headquartered in Moss Point, Mississippi. Bishop John W. Lee became the Bishop of that organization in 1975. The Lord blessed the church to begin renovation of the building in about 1988 and a few years later built the new addition, the fellowship hall, named after the late Elder Moses Rogiers who inspired many to give liberally to the building fund.

After Many Years

After many years of laboring separately as “New Born Church of God and True Holiness” and “Lighthouse Church of   he Apostolic Faith”, in 1988 the two organizations began having joint convocation meetings together. In 1992 at the Holy Convocation in the Washington, DC area, the two organizations officially merged and united to become known as, “The New Born Lighthouse Church of the Apostolic Faith, Incorporated.”

The New Born Lighthouse Church of the Apostolic Faith, Incorporated believes in the Holy Bible, and especially in the New Testament teachings of Jesus Christ, His chosen Apostles, and their doctrine.

We are a part of the continuation of that great revival that began on the day of Pentecost in the First Century. We continue to labor to reach all of the world that we can with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
