steps of a righteous man are ordered of God. In June 1986, Minister Earl O. Crump
was called and asked to accept the position of Pastorship of the New Greaterway
Missionary Baptist Church. The church was located at 25 Martin Luther King Blvd.
Pontiac, MI. Rev. Jacob Washington was Pastor at that time. A meeting
was called and three of the five members were present. After much prayer and seeking the Lord,
Earl O. Crump accepted the Office as Pastor.
The Lord began to add to the church as He saw fit and in
July 1986, Pastor Crump began setting the Church in order. Deacons were
appointed, Officers were elected the Choir and Usher's Ministry was established.
With much anticipation,
the Installation Service was in November 1986 and Pastor Amos Johnson of New
Bethel Baptist Church, installed Minister
Crump as Pastor of the New Greaterway Missionary Baptist Church. The church grew to 120 plus members: Pastor Crump and
the New Greaterway Missionary Baptist Church were there for 5 years
at Martin Luther King Blvd and Lookout Street.
The Vision became clearer, as to what God wanted Pastor Crump
to do and that was to take the church to another level. On May 7, 1991, New Greaterway Missionary Baptist Church purchased the Temple Beth Jacob Synagogue;
located at 79 Elizabeth Lake Rd., Pontiac, MI. Little did Pastor know, this
was only for a short season from July 1991 to September 1999 (8 years).
The Church located at 25 Martin Luther King Blvd. was then sold
in June of 1991.
The Lord began speaking to Pastor Crump about a name change
and in March of 1992, New Greaterway Missionary Baptist Church became New
Greaterway Christian Church.
The God we serve is so awesome because He continued to
Bless New Greaterway. In December of 1995, the Mortgage for 79
Elizabeth Lake Rd. was paid in full. The Lord let us know that we must continue
to walk by Faith.
The Church is growing in leaps and bounds! God is truly
proving that He Favors Pastor Crump and the New Greaterway Christian Church. The
church family began to come in with Expectations, a Hunger and Desire to hear
a Word from God. The Spirit of the Lord is always moving; as the Word is being
taught, the sick are recovering and being healed, chains are being broken and
captives are set free.
Because Pastor teaches, “Take the Limits off God”, we
continue to go to ANOTHER LEVEL. In June 1997 God showed up and showed out again!
God blessed New Greaterway Christian Church to purchased a City Block for
the New location, school and recreational facility. New Greaterway Christian
Church is now located at 511 South Sanford Street, Pontiac, MI. As of January 1, 2004, New Greaterway
Christian Church is changed to the DOOR OF FAITH Christian Church. To God be the
Glory for the things He has done and continue to do for us.
