Ebenezer Baptist Church Review

A Gothic Revival–style building completed in 1922, the church came to be known as the spiritual center of the civil rights movement. Members of the King family, including the slain civil rights leader, preached at the church for three generations. The congregation itself now occupies the building across the street.

    Interesting to see from outside

    This is the church where Martin Luther King was assistant pastor until his death, and where other members of his family were on staff. An attractive old red brick church with minimal exterior ornament. The interior is currently closed for renovation, but pictures in the church office show photos of the inside. Well worth a pop-by as part of the King Memorial Complex.
