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 in good health and in great spirits. Despite all that is happening in the world today, including the atrocities associated with systemic racism and hatred, the Lord our God is still in control. The world also continues to find itself in the clutches of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The President of the United States and the Governor of the State of Alabama have encouraged the reopening of businesses and churches with specific guidelines. The mayor of the City of Montgomery has urged us to remain vigilant in following health and safety guidelines amidst the rising infections in the State of Alabama.

Therefore, based on the rising infections in this state and consultations from 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 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. Don’t forget, 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.
