Overview

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.

This was truly a memorable visit. Sitting where Martin Luther King Jr was a member and a Reverend was a moment I'll never forget.

If you have any interest in Martin Luther King you must go here, the church where he began his religious work.

To sit where one of the most revered men in history gave his sermons was the highlight of the national park for me. The church also has a few museum pieces to look at & a gift shop.

Humbling. Sacred. Solemn. Ebenezer Baptist Church is preserved in a manner that you could just have easily walked into 1960s Atlanta to hear a sermon by Dr. King, himself. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to introduce my children to this place while visiting...More

This is really stepping back in history and you are now a part of it. The clock is stopped at the time MLK was killed. The piano is there where his mom played and you see where the casket was carried. Something that all humans...More

There are very few places that are so understated but steep in history of this nation. The place where Martin Luther King Jr and his family preached in is a testament of the community and its resolve, to which the nation is indebted to.

The church is located directly across the street from the MLK National Historical Park. The sanctuary is lovely with the wooden pews and stained glass. The altar just gushes a sense of history as you stand in awe in this historical site. A MUST SEE!!!

This church is beautiful and rich in history. I didn’t know that MLK’s mother was shot and killed in this church in the 70’s. The feeling you get when you are sitting where MLK preached and learned was amazing
