About
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.

Such a famous church
Sep 2021
Sorry that it was closed for tours due to Covid, but still appreciated seeing it along with the adjacent MLK Historical Center maintained by the National Park Service, as well as MLK’s Atlanta home.

This was closed due to Covid but it was still nice to visit the outside and the gift shop. I hope to one day return and tour the inside.

Really enjoyed service here last Sunday.

Really enjoyed service here last Sunday. Famous churches like this run the risk of feeling more like a tourist attraction than a place of worship but the focus was squarely on the word. Outside homage is paid to its famous former pastor, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but inside you know you are in a church. Would love to return on my next visit to Atlanta

There are recordings of Dr. King’s sermons playing...you literally can let yourself feel like you were hearing them directly from him. It was cool just to be in the same space where he spent so much time. Plenty of history lessons throughout. Definitely glad I made my way there.

Heart full of live and respect

Walking in during an audio broadcast of one of Reverend King’s sermons, we instantly were immersed in the moment. We sat in a pew, head bowed and ears and soul open. Tears welled up at the feeling of his words and it was as if we were there at the time. Thank you for continuing to share his profound wisdom and humanness with visitors.

Life changing experience!
Jan 2020
Visiting this church will change your life! To see the actual pulpit where Dr. King preached from, to kneel in the pews that his congregation knelt in was the highlight of my trip to Atlanta. They have historic sermons playing inside the church which made it even more memorable.
The staff were very helpful. Clean bathrooms!
I took the subway train and walked to the area. I made an afternoon of visiting area by going to the MLK National Historic Park and visitors center, visited the church, and then went to the cemetery by the train station. Signs everywhere ask tourists to not give money to the panhandlers, and there were quite a few. I tried to stop in a bodega for a soda, big mistake, very scary.
Visiting Ebenezer is absolutely worth the time and will make a trip to Atlanta more memorable!

A Must See church/Memorial
Feb 2020 • Friends
We attended a Sunday church service as a group. It was a very moving experience. The people were very warm and welcoming. We then walked across the street to the original church where Martin Luther Kings father and grandfather preached. Coretta & Martin Luther King are also laid to rest here. It’s a very peaceful memorial. This is a very moving site.

Solemn Experience

Connecting and being at a designated place of worship that has stood the test of time for over a century. My reverence for the Most High - The Only True and Living God was heightened as I participated in the personal walk. I certainly appreciation the hands and hearts of the people used to make history. I am still grateful and teary eyed.

A historic site

Worth a visit for anyone visiting ATL who is interested in browsing the city's historic gems. This is the church where MLK Jr and his father preached.

A Humble American Landmark
Jan 2020
For the role this church played in the Civil Rights Movement, it's a humble building on a very discrete and somewhat dilapidated section of Auburn Avenue. Perhaps, the highlight of our time here was siting in the sanctuary while facing the podium and hearing a recording of one of MLK, Jr.'s sermons over the speakers. It's located right across the street from the Visitor's Center.
