“Welcoming and Encouraging”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

I went with a friend who is an Orthodox Jew. She dragged me to church because I had been depressed for quite some time and stopped going. The experience was new for her and I was concerned about someone trying to convert her- lol. But we were both welcomed with hugs-the message gave me hope- and no one tried to convert my friend. Instead she was smothered withhugs and smils, and someone took the time to pray with me individually. We went to Kosher Delight for lunch.

“You'll Never Be the Same Again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

No matter who you are, you won't be able to deny the special sense of peace you'll experience before, during and/or after the service. You will encounter the presence of God. If at some point during the service you find yourself crying for no apparent reason, know that you've encountered the eternal Lover of your soul. Bow down and worship Him. From the nursery to the seniors, everyone is ministered to and can call the Brooklyn Tabernacle home.

“A Spiritual High!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

If you are in the area, plan to attend one of the Sunday services with the BT Choir or the Tuesday night prayer experience. You will not be disappointed. But come early, this isn't like your church back home.

“Incredible, must see but be early”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

If you are looking for a great worship and message experience you need to come to the Brooklyn Tabernacle. It is an awsome place to worship with a choir of over 250 people. If you things to consider, they have a 9, 12 and 3p services. the choir sings in either 9 and 12 or 12 and 3. We recommend the 12 but you need to arrive at least 30 min early to get a place in the main sanctuary. we didn't so we had to sit in the annex hall and watched the service on screen. It was still a great experience. If you park in the Edison Parking across the street then you may validate your ticket from the church lobby and pay only 7$. After church you need to go eat at Dallas BBQ next door. Excellent food and low prices. We totally enjoyed that too.
