Welcome to New Canaan Missionary Baptist Church online! I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My name is Rev. Jerry W. Iverson and I have been the Pastor here at New Canaan since 1998. Prior to becoming Pastor, I was also a Trustee and a Deacon here at this church. I'm married to Mrs. Evelin Iverson and have three children and four grandchildren. Originally from Georgia, I moved to Montgomery area in 1990 as a requirement of my employer, the United States Air Force. I've retired from military life and today I am the full-time Pastor of this great congregation.
I give God the praise for how He has blessed us with spiritual and physical increase. There are more blessing in store for us all as we do the will of God. Be diligent in seeking the Lord for the Bible says, in Matthew 6:33, Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. Seek Him in prayer; in the study of his word, in worship and in service to others. Here at New Canaan, we encourage people to yield to God in this manner, for this is the will of God.
Look forward to see you. May God bless and keep you.
Rev. Jerry W. Iverson Sr.
New Canaan has been serving the community of Montgomery Alabama for over 135 years. Our service has come through, encouraging people to accept Jesus Christ as their lord and savior, feeding the hungry, assisting the poor, ministering to those outside the walls of our church and teaching the Word of God.
“Go into all the world preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ; Baptizing in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost as instructed by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:19.
Using God’s inexhaustible resources of Prayer, His Word, and the Power of the Holy Ghost, the members of New Canaan Missionary Baptist Church shall endeavor to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout our homes; our families; our congregation; our neighborhoods; our city; our state; our country; and our world.
