Eddie Long's church is in Lithonia near I-20; I think he is a good 45 minutes to an hour from Lawrenceville

On Rt. 29/8 heading towards Winder, there is a black either Baptist or AME, I think it's Baptist just past the Ingles on the left hand side in Auburn.
From Lawrenceville, maybe 20-25 minutes.

Small Georgia old time church, but on Sunday the lot is full. And when the doors are open??? Let's just say you can hear them gettin' their Jesus on!!!!

If your evangelical and enjoy high energy services, you can't beat the small town Southern Churches, no matter black or white.

Good Luck

Default ATL churches

Black churches in ATL area........ you've got to kidding there is one every other mile in any direction. If your impressed with the "big name ministry" there are plenty to go around: Long, Bynum, Dollar, Morton, if your into mega ministry. Problem is is that it takes over an hour to get out of the parking lots after services. Check out Bronner in Austell, Charles Stanley (near you) both good teaching ministers. I myself moved here from LA (DONT MISS IT AT ALL !!!) You'll find that there are many good no-name ministries here just find a good teaching one regardless of color. I came from a COGIC church in Riverside. I now prefer non-denom.

Every week, I try to catch E. Dewey Smith's church service on The Word Network. His church, Greater Travelers Rest Baptist, is in Decatur, and I've really enjoyed his sermons. Should I decide on ATL, I'll definitely be going to check out his church.

I am in the same boat. Just moved here from Florida, but originally from So. Calif. We are in Lawrenceville. We do have alot of large names, but they are too large for us. we just came from one that large and really would like to be a little smaller. We went to Victory World in Duluth. Church is international in nature. Very friendly, teaching Pastor & people. They have about a couple thousand memebers but they do 3 services and have individual groups/leaders that meet for bible studies, etc.

We do want to visit others, but not sure where. We where thinking of visiting Vision of Life Ministries in Lawrenceville on Chestnut. But, we'll see.

What many that don't live in Gwinnett are unaware of is Gwinnett doesn't have as many black churches at Fulton and Dekalb counties. There is not a black church on each street corner.

I would suggest three Gwinnett churches for you to attend for consideration. Hopewell (a mega one in Norcross), Friendship (Duluth) and Christ the King (Dacula). All of these churches have very active memberships and I think you will find a great church home among these three.

Can anyone tell me about any black churches that are south of Atlanta. We are purchasing in Peachtree City, and it is too far to drive to Long's church in Lithonia. We do prefer the mega churches though. We will be coming from Evangel Cathedral, in Upper Marlboro, MD. Bishop Meares is the head pastor. He ain't black either, but his church is. Where is Earl Paulkes church?
