Ridgedale Baptist Church is honored to be linked to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through the ministry of Rev. Earl Stallings.  Rev. Stallings was the pastor at Ridgedale from 1947-1951, and was the only clergyman to be praised by name in Dr. King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail.”

You can read Dr. King’s letter here.


There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  Galatians 3:28
