Owner description: 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.

The church has been restored to what it looked like during the time of Martin Luther King Jr and it is well worth visiting. Staff are really wonderful and helpful.

Pastor Warnock is a knowledgeable, dynamic speaker who is filled with The Spirit. Everyone feels welcomed in this warm and caring environment. We feel honored to sit among the many members who marched alongside Dr. M L King and visitors are present each week from literally all over the world. We love our new church home!

Discovering Martin Luther King in the context of his church is a moving experience. Just walking around the various rooms and the worship area, which have a very special atmosphere, is awesome.
Our only regret is that services are rarely held there, as the new replacement church has been built across the road.
It is also within walking distance of the Martin Luther King memorial and eternal flame.
Parking was good, especially when you consider it is in the heart of the city.
Staff are warm, friendly and inofrmative.

Those black sisters and brothers sure know how to have fun in their spiritual practise, even though I can write my gospel experience off my bucket list, I'm prolly going again someday.
p.s. I'm not the religous type.

It's great to see this part of history. The church, burial site and the display of Dr. King as well as Coretta King was lovely to see. I enjoyed it. It makes you feel as if you were there. I would love to visit it again when I visit the area which will be very soon.
