Meet Our Pastor and First Lady

EBC was blessed when the LORD sent Pastor Gilbert S. Hamm Sr. and First Lady Viola Hamm.  They have a heart for people and it is evident in the way they lead.

Pastor Hamm is passionate about sharing the gospel and his unique teaching and preaching style not only engages the listener, but challenges the listener to make significant and lasting personal life changes. His heart and attitude are also contagious. Every Sunday he states this affirmation “We are one big happy family” 

First Lady Viola Hamm serves as President for the Women of Grace Ministry and she leads the prayer and praise service every 1st and 3rd Friday. She has been called dependable and reliable because she always working in the ministry.

Thru powerful preaching and effective teaching the LORD continues to grow the church spiritually as well as physically.

Our Mission

Our purpose is reaching the lost and building believers for the Kingdom of God. We accomplish this thru the preaching and teaching of the Bible which is the inspired Word Of God.

About Ebenezer Baptist

In 1931, a group of Christians assembled and held service in a house of 411 East 8th Street, in

Wilmington, DE. They organized a church and named it Ebenezer Baptist Church (EBC). The church was incorporated by the State of Delaware on November 12, 1940.

In 1940, a more suitable place was found and purchased at 811 Walnut Street. The building was remodeled in 1942 under the leadership of the late Rev. W.C. Simmons.

Under the leadership and guidance of the late Rev. Lewis Johnson, EBC marched into to the new edifice on Sunday morning February 10, 1985.

EBC is a soul winning and tithing church and now under the leadership of Pastor Gilbert S. Hamm Sr., continues to grow spiritually as well as physically. We celebrate the favor of God and invite your to come see what the Lord is doing.
