“A Century, Twoscore and Three years for Christ.” In many ways, one hundred forty-three years is not a long period of time. In other ways, it has been a long time since 1873. Many things of tremendous importance have taken place within this space of time.

Rainbow Park Baptist Church has a very rich history.  The church started out as Kirkwood Baptist Church and was located at North Howard Street Atlanta, Georgia with seating capacity of 275. 


Rainbow Park was selected as our new name since we were located near Rainbow Drive in Decatur.  Sunday, February 2, 1969, was a day of great rejoicing when we were able to hold our first service in the new meeting house at 2941 Columbia Drive, Decatur.

Changes in leadership over the years brought many pastors through with different visions.  In 2007 Rainbow Park made history when Reverend Steven N. Dial, Sr. became the first African-American Pastor in church history.  

  • We will have 1500 active members at the Park in 2020.

  • We will have 1.2 million dollars in tithes, offering and vision in 2020.

  • We will be in our new sanctuary in 2020.

  • We will be the church to visit and join in 2020.

  • We will have 1000 friends of the Park in 2020. 


We create disciples to be faithful servants of God's people to bring Him glory.

We deeply desire to build up the Kingdom of God and reach His world.  We serve our church and community through our many ministries.


We are a compassionate and growing community with a calling to serve God's people for His glory and honor.  We believe in the anointing and awesome power of the Holy Spirit.  We look forward to meeting you and serving God's people together.

Remind yourself that Jesus is always with you!
He is your hope for tomorrow.

 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
    they shall walk and not faint.
