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,

Praise God from whom all blessings flow! We trust that you are blessed, in good health, and in great spirits. Even though we have not physically been together, we encourage you to stay connected by joining both the prayer line each morning at 7:00 AM i

(starting back in January 2022) and Bible Study on Wednesdays at noon by dialing 267-807-9601 and use access number 691-580-052. You can also use this number to join us for Sunday School at 9:00 AM and our Sunday Worship Service at 10:00 AM. Our Worship Service will also be streamed live on Facebook. So let us celebrate the Advent season in Unity, Love, and Peace together. 

We have been blessed to have not been directly impacted by the loss of life of a member of this church to COVID-19. We have hope in a vaccine, however we must remain vigilant in our efforts to stay safe and as healthy as possible. As you may be aware, we have established a COVID -19 Task Force which will continue to explore the viability of reentering the edifice. The Chair of the COVID-19 Task Force is Dr. Brian Gary and Dr. John Jernigan serves as our chief medical consultant. Until further notice, we will continue to remain closed for gatherings such as worship service, Sunday School, bible study, tourism, and meetings that will promote large gatherings that do not or cannot adhere to CDC guidelines. 

Be Blessed and Be Safe.
