I enjoyed the experience. Felt welcome and the service was nice. Ppl weren't overly friendly but they weren't nasty. Large space.

Everything you read about this magical church is true. The music is powerful and the message is the real deal -- I could feel the power of the Holy Spirit here and I have to say, I was really moved. Amazing experience that I won't soon forget.

I attend Sunday services regularly. The praise and worship is always good. The sermons are powerful. Everyone who visits should stay for the sermon and be blessed.

We were truly blessed on our visit to this church today. We went to the 11:00 service. Got there at 10:10 and had to wait in line. But it was fine. No real issue at all. There are attendants outside and it's all very orderly when the 9:00 service finishes. Jim Cymbala said at one stage "we are there to... More

It's very big & worship service is very good. They play the type of music that makes you get up, dance and worship.

Although I attend a church not too far from Brooklyn Tabernacle, I enjoy visiting this church from time to time. They have a great worship service and a very diverse congregation. Although it is enormous, I enjoy the service.

We went to the 1 PM Sunday service ( there was also a 9 AM and 11 AM) . We got there a half hour early and there was already a line waiting to get in -when does that happen in a church! The Brooklyn Tabernacle is a " multicultural, non-denominational church in the heart of downtown Brooklyn." Once we... More

Forget about 'Jesus love you,' forget about 'Save me' or 'God is love' and just listen to the music and the voices that sprouts with joy. I came in as an atheist and left as a joyful atheist. Thanks to the choir for sharing their joy in life.
