I have been attending this church my whole life, so my review may be a bit biased, but I've been to other churches and this is the best one!!!! Not only are you blessed the Grammy Award Winning The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, but also by the words by Pastor Cymbala and the other pastors that preach here. Even though it... More

While there is no perfect church and there are many elements of this church that feel more like a Broadway production than a true worship service, it is nevertheless extremely well thought out, an amazing experience, the choir will blow you away... It is an amazing experience!

I always enjoy my visits to this place. The people seem warm and genuinely kind. To crowed for being a member, but a great place to visit.

I loved visiting the Brooklyn Tabernacle! Their award winning choir was amazing to listen to. We came on New Years and it was super packed, so come early. From the outside, it looks like a normal building. Once inside, you see it is an old theater. What a beautiful building!! We had a great time and came twice during our... More

What an experience! Be prepared......it is packed to the top of the balcony. There are 3 Sunday services to choose from. First of all the building is an old beautiful theatre with an orchestra, mezzanine and balcony level. The first hour or more is wonderful, uplifting, spirit filled music......the sanctuary is rock in'. The music is worth the visit in... More

This church is full of people who love the Lord. They were super-friendly to the visitors, especially our youth group from Alabama. The music is phenomenal and energetic. Loved it.

Our choir was there to sing at the Brooklyn Tabernacle. What a fantastic group of people, what an amazing choir they have. If you are looking for a place to worship while in NY, you must go there. It was such a wonderful unforgettable time we had. I cannot say enough good things about this place and its people. Simply... More

Great time ... Uplifting -- and free. The only thing freer and more UPlifting is salvation and you will know how to obtain it after a Brooklyn Tabernacle service.
