I've been visiting Brooklyn Tabernacle for over a decade now. And although I haven't joined, I enjoy coming to worship when I can. The last few times I've visited, I noticed that tourists just come to hear the choir and then leave before the sermon. Of course, the award-winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is amazing, but Pastor Jim Cymbala gives a... More

Big burly "bouncers" oh....sorry, members of the congregation stopped me and others from going inside despite the fact that our fmailies were inside, that we had... More

We planned to visit the Tabernacle, and we knew it was good, but it surpassed our expectations. With free admission to a wonderful theater, it is probably one of the best deals in town, particularly during the Holidays. We loved it!

Wonderful way to celebrate NewcYears Eve . Wonderful music, inspiring singing and preaching. Probably a bit overwhelming if this is an unfamiliar scene. You need to be there early ... an hour early, no filming allowed, no food, liquids and it is very hot. It is local worship service for anyone looking to be encouraged and inspired.

I met a member who walked me over at lunch time because I was interested in the architectural restoration. We were admitted while a service was happening. However, a few friends of mine went there during their lunch period and they were not granted admission. Not only were they disappointed - they felt insulted. And they way they were refused... More

I truly believe that Pastor Cymbala is anointed and has a gift on teaching the words of God and saying it in a way that provides easy understanding and make it applicable for everyday life. The choir is anointed. Beautiful voices. Helps you connect with God and feel his presence. Very professional and well put together. I think some are... More

Although I've never been to a service in this church, I recently had the privilege of overhearing a choir rehearsal and all I can say is that if their PERFORMANCES during a service are anywhere near as fantastic as their PRACTICE SESSIONS are, then you are in for a treat while visiting this church when a Sunday service is taking...

Every time I visit Brooklyn, this is the church I go to. I love the choir, the service, and great hospitality from the ministry staff.
