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.

Great historical site

Took high school students here. They sat quietly in the front row of the church and listened intently to MLK recorded. It was a moving experience

The church was a little hard to find, as was a parking place I was comfortable with. There's parking behind the new church (next to a playground). There's a visitors center, and the church is past the rose garden across the street. It's small and a quick tour but very good. You can sit in the sanctuary and listen to... More

To really get more out of this - first go to the visitors center across the street and watch the MLK movie and then come and feel the sense of history that permeates the church, walking in the steps of MLK. From such humble beginnings, to such an iconic person, one can imagine sitting there listening to him at services.... More

An interesting venue which is frozen in time. A recording of early speeches are played allowing one to sort of imagine what it might have been like when MLK was at the podium. It would have been better if the sound were turned up higher to reflect the energy that must have been unleashed back then.

I have visited and taken guests 3 times in three months. You can park nearby for free. There is no fee but you can give a donation. You can sit in the church and listen to Dr. King speak. Take note of the clock. Look at the pictures and read the captions throughout the church. Go down the basement. Watch... More

No trip to Atlanta is complete without a visit to the Sweet Auburn District. Ebenezer is a highlight. A solemn place where services continue each Sunday, it is always welcoming.

The historic Ebenezer Baptist is a must for anyone visiting the Martin Luther King complex. It's been wonderfully renovated, now looking just like it did when Dr. King was co-pastor. Very informative history, stirring sermons recreated in the sanctuary. Wonderful experience.. our best in Atlanta. Wished we could give it a 5 plus plus! Don't miss it.

If you are visiting the Martin Luther King, Jr memorial make sure you go inside the church. Pretty church and they have a recording of MLK speaking, gave me chills to know he preached right there.
