Ebenezer Baptist Church (New)


The new Ebenezer Baptist Church is the home of the congregation once led by Dr Martin Luther King Jr. As befits one of the most influential church communities in American history, the structure is impressive – light filled, airy and more welcoming than muscular. The church is across the street from the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, and welcomes visitors to Sunday morning services. Dress nicely.
