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 is a great place to learn about black history. I enjoyed the church and learning things I did not know previously. Its amazing to see the place MLK once stood. The man who does MLK speech is awesome.

It was very moving to see where MLK preached and to sit in the pews whilst hearing recordings of his sermons. Must see. Don’t be put off by the closed and stiff entrance door - it is open to visitors!

An easy Atlanta streetcar ride from the Peachtree area to the King Historic District stop. Free admission (donations appreciated) and you do have to take the stairs to move around. Pause to hear Dr. King Jr.'s sermon(s) and head down the basement for more details...More

I'm originally born here in Atlanta Georgia. However, I like to travel to different cities of Georgia to experience the small differences. There is so much to see in each city.

A small church but a huge history. You can sit in the pews and listen to Dr. Martin Luther King's sermons and it is incredibly moving. in the basement you can watch a video of his sister telling her story.
