Although I am a non Christian I have to say that it was a very spiritual moment I had at the Tabernacle. I really enjoyed this special service and believe its a unique American culture experience.

I don't know enough adjectives to properly express my experience at the Brooklyn Tabernacle. If you want to visit a place where they worship God from the very fiber of their being, you must go. The music is world-class, the congregation is multi-cultural, the message is biblical. I think this is how heaven will be, people from all cultures praising... More

We enjoyed the energy of all the visitors. We had a great service. Although it was a very big church the people were all connected.

I visited Brooklyn Tabernacle and it was an awesome experience. I am not Christian, however, I did go to Catholic school my whole life, so I am very exposed to the religion. I visited this church for my God Daughters christening. This church is so multi cultural, multi racial, multi national....it was inspiring. I felt like it was the most... More

WOW! If you have never bee to the Brooklyn Tabernacle, you need to put this on your "bucket list." This is no doubt the friendliest, most accommodating group of people you will ever encounter. The music is outstanding and the message from the Pastor is simple, succinct and spirit filled!

Coming from a very traditional Catholic country, where masses are old-fashioned, spleenful and severe, it was nice to experience a festive service where things were led like a celebration, and people seemed to be happy about their beliefs rather than fearful. The choir only had about 15 people, I was expecting more but it was good nonetheless.

Exactly as a french tourist can imagine :-) First, it is incredible how professional it is ; 7 cameras filming the office (should I say the show ?), 200 chorists, around 10 musicians... The result has really top professional quality, honestly, much better than many concerts I saw !!! Now up to you to say if you like or not... More

Excellent place to come and worship. You will get the word ministered to you from the pastors and through music.
