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.

It is so important to preserve accurate history. It's something that allows us to keep our moral compasses set correctly. Humbly, Ebenezer brings you in, shows you what was, and that truth becomes a part of you forever.

The original location of the church is worth a brief stop, although there is little to see and learn there. There is a new church nearby, but from an historical perspective, the original location is the place to see.

It was definitely worth visiting this iconic church! What history! I suggest checking out MLK's tomb, birth house & other close by landmarks!

As I said in the Historical site, this is an amazing visit to history. It is free, but you can give a donation. MLK's voice is on in the sanctuary preaching. It was very moving.

The park service has done a nice job restoring the church back to how it looked when MLK preached there. It is right across the street from the visitor center.

Walked in and was overwhelmed with a mix of emotions. Just overjoyed to be a Black Woman walking into this church, taking away a bit of history. It was awesome, definitely a must see.

Must see historical site. Good neighborhood, easy access to drive, many tours get here. 200 yards from MLK's birth site.

There are some excellent displays, but don't come looking for a DIsney presentation. If you want to get close to the real Dr. King, take some time and see where he was.
