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,
God is Great and Greatly be Praised! We pray that you are blessed, in good health, and in great spirits. Even though we have not physically been together, I encourage you to stay connected as a church family by joining both the Prayer line each morning at 7:00 AM EST and Bible Study on Wednesdays at noon by dialing 1-712-775-7031 and use access code #691-580-052. Don’t forget, a family that prays together stays together. The same number can be used to dial in for Sunday School at 9:30 AM and our Sunday Morning Worship Service at 10:00 AM each Sunday. The Worship Service will also be streamed live on Facebook.
We have been blessed to not have been directly impacted by loss of the life of a member of this church to COVID – 19. Therefore, we must remain vigilant in our efforts to stay safe and as healthy as possible by continuing to remain closed for gatherings such as worship service, Sunday school. Bible study, tourism, and in person meetings that will promote large gatherings that do not or cannot adhere to CDC Guidelines.
We have learned more and more about COVID-19 over the last few months including the fact that this pandemic is still alive and we cannot let our guard down. However, it is time to work on a plan to return to some level of normalcy. In consultation with Dr. John Jernigan and Dr. Brian Gary, we’re asking for volunteers to service on a “Church Reentry Team” to ensure a safe return.
Also, the next church conference will be held on Saturday, October 2, 2020. More information on the church conference will be forthcoming.
Be Blessed and Be Safe.
