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.

We visited this location in July 2017. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would love to return when we can actually enter the sanctuary. Highly recommend!

The church played the same sermon MLK spoke before his killing. It was an amazing feeling being in the same room he waled and preached in.

History at it's finest! Come walk into the history of the civil rights movement and see the church where Dr. King spoke. Just outside is an excellent National Park in commemoration of Dr. & Mrs. King including the birthplace home and graves.

A National Park Staff person greets you as you enter the Ebenezer Baptist Church and is ready to answer your questions. You can go into the sanctuary and sit as long as you like. A recording plays. A real piece of history.
