Who has 2 thumbs, and writes a review of going to church? This guy! Let's be perfectly honest here: there is a growing dissatisfaction with all things religious, particularly as folks become more aware of some of the really really stupid stuff that people do in the name of religion. But I'll promise you that even with that level of... More

Always a great message that is Bible based. A little humor every once in a while as well :) Even though it's a huge church, the message is for all and I always walk away encouraged.

Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is world famous. Their music will make you raise your hands in worship. Make sure to come on a Sunday and listen to the sermon too!

As tourists from Texas, we decided to attend what we believed to be a concert by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir on New Year's Eve. It turned out to be an actual church service, which was also great. The music by the famed choir was fantastic, although we would have liked more of it. The message by Pastor Tim was well... More

If you need from Jesus this is the place to worship. Wonderful atmosphere, beautiful church with wonderful music from the Grammy winner brooklyn tabernacle choir. Pastor cymbals with a message soo uplifting. The yearly Christmas show is amazing and free. If you need God this is a wonderful house of worship.

We were lucky enough to be in the city during their Christmas performance of "Christmas in the City". It was wonderful. Well worth the wait. We were told to get there atleast an hour early (we had a group of 18). We got there almost an hour and a half early and had plenty of time. Would suggest getting there... More

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.
