Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church was completed in 1922. Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. became pastor of Ebenezer in 1931. In 1960 his oldest son, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., joined his father as Co-Pastor, giving Ebenezer international stature. Following the assassination of Dr. King, Jr. on April 4, 1968, his younger son, the Rev. Alfred Daniel Williams King, replaced his brother as Ebenezers second Co-Pastor. Rev. A. D. Kings tenure came to a close at his death in 1970, and was followed by Dr. Otis Moss in 1971. The Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. retired on August 1, 1975 after forty-four years of tremendous service to Ebenezer and the world. Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church is now part of The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site. The church was restored in two phases beginning in 2001.
