This sanctuary became a spiritual haven for civil rights activists when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. served as senior pastor in the 1960s. On the self-guided audio tour, King's inspirational sermons will take visitors back in time, while the new Horizon Sanctuary across the street is home to the present day congregation, highlighted by its traditional tabernacle choir.

Wonderful church still looks the same as it did when MLK was a pastor. This is a wonderful piece of history that is very moving to see. It's free.

I grew up hearing about it but I was so glad I was able to visit this historic landmark. When we entered the sanctuary a sermon by Dr MLK Jr was playing...... It brought tears to my eyes.

The church is free to visit, they just ask for donations at the door. Beautiful woodwork and stained glass windows. You can feel the history once you walk in. There's a weird gift shop as you exit but we didn't go in.

A chance to visit one of the iconic buildings of Atlanta. This was where Martin Luther King grew up and attended church.

The historical Ebenezer Baptist church was open for tourists and I decided to walk into it for a visit. You can go in and sit in the church while you imagine Martin Luther King speaking to the congregation. If you are in the area, I recommend stopping in for a visit.

We also went down to the Vestry / Common area in the basement. I would recommend a visit to this Historical site. You can visit the... More

This was Dr. King's church. He preached here. The history and seeing the pulpit where Dr. King preached from transport you through an important time in the civil rights movement. Both this and the adjacent Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site are must sees if you are in the Atlanta area. I will definitely go back if I am... More

Stopped through here while visiting the Martin Luther King Historic site. This church is very interesting and there's a lot of history here. It's amazing to think of some of the sermons from Dr. King took place right here and I was there! Definitely a must see for any visitor to the Historic site
