God is Great and Greatly to be Praised!

As the Pastor and First Lady of Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church – we greet you in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Historically, the body of Christ here at Dexter Avenue has courageously demonstrated its love for God and His people by being servant-leaders in the cause for justice and equality. By divine providence, the Lord has blessed Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church with an international legacy which stands on the foundation of love.

Today, this body of Christ continues to be committed to a God conscience and a social conscience by engaging in ministry that meet the needs of all people. We continue to be committed to the finished work of the cross by encouraging, promoting, and fostering an atmosphere for spiritual growth through the word of God and through Christ-like living.

We invite you to worship with us, to study with us and to serve with us at the historic Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church!

– Rev. Cromwell A. Handy


COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Situation

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

We hope that you are blessed, in good health, and in great spirits. We are living in tumultuous times that have touched us all in a personal way. Let us keep the families who have lost love ones to COVID-19 in our prayers. Despite all that is happening, God is our refugee and our strength, and we must continue to serve the Lord with the tools the Lord has blessed us to have at our disposal. Thank you all for supporting Virtual Vacation Bible School, it was fun and a great blessing!

Based on the rate of infections in this city/state and consultation with Dr. John Jernigan and Dr. Brain Gary, ALL church activities, i.e. church service, Sunday School, bible study, tourism and meetings will continue to be suspended until further notice. We again encourage you to join us on the prayer line each morning at 7:00 AM (starting back again on August 1st) and Bible Study on Wednesdays at noon by dialing 712-775-7031 and use access code 691-580-052. Facebook Live is also available for our Sunday Worship Service at 10:00 AM each Sunday. Don’t forget, a family that Prays together Stays together!


As followers of Christ, in difficult days, we practice FAITH not FEAR! The Lord does not give us a spirit of fear but of love, of power, and of a sound mind. However, the Lord has imparted us with wisdom, knowledge, and prudence.


Be blessed and be safe.
