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.

Sitting in a pew where I might have heard one of the Dr. Kings' sermons and felt the power of prayers and words for peace is very moving. Step back into history and try to imagine the power that moved through this place as the beginning of change and trying to come together.

It was very moving to sit in the pews in the church that Martin Luther King, Jr and his family preached and listen to him speak. It was the highlight of our visit to Atlanta. Highly recommended.

It is a lovely place to know the Afro American culture. Listen to Dr. King speeches and gospel music. We loved it.

I found it moving to sit in the church where Martin Luther King, Jr. preached his message of nonviolence. While sitting in the pews, you can listen King preaching, close your eyes and be transported to the time when he was there.

Being able to sit in the church that Martin Luther King Jr and his father and grandfather preached at was amazing. To sit in the sanctuary and listen to one of his sermons being played was amazing

So much history surrounds this church. While there was no tour, which is unfortunate, rangers are available to answer questions. This is a must see in conjunction with the other Dr. King, Jr. sites in the area.

This was truly a humbling visit and really underscored how we stand upon the shoulders of giants. I would highly recommend anyone visiting this incredible piece of history! It's free to visit since it's serviced by the National Park and there are several other key pieces of history, including MLK's birth home, which is just a short distance away. Very... More

If you're in the area, why not stop by? It's a small church so it can get crowded when you're visiting but you can come and sit and listen to Martin Luther King Jr's voice preaching. Also right next to his birth home and museum. Perfect for an educational lesson.

We were very glad that we decided to stop by and visit the church. It is a beautiful, spiritual place to visit. Take time to listen to the history of MLK Jr. and Ebenezer church. Then, go into the sanctuary where you can listen to a recording of him preaching. You can stay parked wherever you are and walking down... More
