Ebenezer Baptist Church

MLK's Home Church

Save to my Account

Ebenezer Baptist Church was founded  in 1886 and the congregation moved into what is known as the Heritage  Sanctuary in 1922.  It was in this  sanctuary where the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther preached his message of  nonviolence in the 1960s.

There are now  two Ebenezers and they are directly across the street from one another at the Martin Luther King Jr.’s Historical Site.

The old church stands next to the MLK Center and Dr. and Mrs. King’s  tombs.  The Horizon Sanctuary, where  worship takes place today, was dedicated in 1999 and is next door to the  National Park Service Center.
