Ebenezer Baptist Church has been solid as a rock for more than 124 years. Built on the solid rock of Jesus Christ, Ebenezer has been blessed with pastors who not only preach the Gospel, but take their ministries into the world and speak on behalf of the oppressed, disenfranchised and underprivileged. It was here, from the pulpit of the Heritage Sanctuary, that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached his ministry of nonviolence. Standing at theRock, he reminded hiscongregants to lean onthe God who delivered them through slavery and who would surely deliver them through the fight for civil rights. Now, from the pulpit of the Horizon Sanctuary, Senior Pastor Raphael G. Warnock continues Ebenezer’s legacy as a church at the forefront of the fight for social justice. During this time of national distress and international conflict, he stands at the Rock and preaches that God will once again deliver the world through threats to voting rights, war, and unjust conditions that continue the cycle of poverty.
Each Sunday, along with it's members, hundreds of visitors – from around Auburn Avenue and around the globe – stop by Ebenezer to experience its history and to join the church as it strives for Higher Ground. The doors are open to all who will come. Whoever you are, you are welcome at Ebenezer, and you are welcome to lean on the Rock.
