Vacation Travel Guide

Ebenezer Baptist Church of Atlanta showing a church or cathedral

The most prominent figure from the U.S. civil rights movement preached in what is now known as America’s Freedom Church for its role in a move toward equality.

Among the most profound and historic spots in the city is the Ebenezer Baptist Church of Atlanta, where Martin Luther King Jr. preached. This charming religious structure has a simple façade that belies its historic importance and the role it played in the life of one of the key activists of the 20th-century Civil Rights Movement of the United States. Visit the Ebenezer Baptist Church of Atlanta to follow in the footsteps of one of America’s most beloved and important figures.

Admire the elegant gabled roof and twin towers marking the sides of the front entry. Spot the vintage blue sign with a white cross that hangs from the side of the building.

Speak with the docents and clergy in the church to learn more about its history. It was constructed in 1922, nine years before Martin Luther King Jr.’s father became a pastor. Learn how his famous son joined him as a co-pastor in 1960.

Attend a Sunday worship service in the early or late morning or bring your little ones to the Sunday School. Consider taking them to the Children’s Chapel or the Youth Church in the late morning. The building’s office hours run from Monday to Sunday, from morning until late afternoon.

To learn more about the history and Martin Luther King Jr’s involvement in the church and the surrounding area, head to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park’s visitor center. It has an inspiring Children of Courage exhibit that pieces together the stories of the children in the American civil rights movement. Stand alongside the marching figures in the Freedom Road display and watch the introductory video for additional context.

Find the Ebenezer Baptist Church of Atlanta in the Sweet Auburn district on the eastern side of the city. Travel by tram to the King Historic District stop or ride a bus to this area.

Explore the surroundings for other gems such as the King Center, the Martin Luther King Jr. Birth Home and Historic Fire Station 6.
