Keeping the Faith: A Video History

Join us via Facebook Live for a look back at the history of Ebenezer BaptistChurch. As the oldest African-American church in the city of Virginia Beach, Ebenezer has been an integral part of this community. We will recognize our members who are in their 80's and 90's, so please contact Ms. Ann Washington (757) 490-9690 if you or your loved one wants to be included in this tribute.
