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

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

Even at a time such as this, God is Great and Greatly to be Praised! Sunday will mark the Seventh Sunday or Lord’s Day that we here at Dexter have not assembled physically for praise, worship, and prayer. However, we have been blessed to continue to be connected in the spirit by the power of the Holy Spirit with the aid of modern technology. Praise the Lord that we have continued to strive for “Unity and Harmony in 2020” by studying, worshiping, and praying together as a local body in Christ!

The health care professionals continue to strongly recommend that we avoid gathers of 10 – 25 people and practice social distancing as well as other preventive measures. Therefore, 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 by dialing 712-775-7031 and use access code 691-580-052. A family that Prays together Stays together!

We will continue to monitor the situation and update you on any new developments.

Be blessed and be safe.
