We attended for a baby dedication and the church is beautiful with a vintage gold design. The church is huge with lots of seating on the lower level and there was even a balcony. The choir was amazing! There had to be at least 100 beautiful voices singing the most familiar gospel songs making it easy to join in and praise with them. Large screens on the left and right of the main stage displayed the words of the music in the event you didn’t know the words. The Choir sang about 3-4 songs while we all stood. Then they sang another 2 songs while we sat. The church was pretty cold for a March day. I never took my off and my daughter kept her coat zipped with her hood on the whole time. There was a guest pastor from Harlem who not resides in Kentucky and his story was very engaging but also a great testimony to Gods love. I took my children to the bathroom during service and I was impressed with the sitting room before you enter the bathrooms. The bathrooms were very clean. Parking was horrible. And if you live in Brooklyn I’m sure you’re aware of this. Coming from Long Island we drove around for 20 min looking for parking and then found a spot 5 blocks down! It wasn’t a far walk but just so unfamiliar to attend church with no onsite parking.

This is a place of worship of Jesus Christ. IT is a beautiful building with old world restoration of architecture and holds 5000 seats.

We attended to hear the celebrated choir. The Tabernacle has giant Jumbotrons so you can sing along. The music was OK but not spectacular. The preacher gave an anti-gay sermon. My group (family) walked out.

We'd been looking forward to visiting the Brooklyn Tabernacle on our NYC trip and were not disappointed. To hear the Grammy-award winning choir sing live and to hear Pastor Cymbala preach in person were a highlight. It was not performance, it was worship. The focus was on Jesus, not self-glorification. Pastor Cymbala is as humble as I expected him to be. I only wish we could have heard a couple more testimonies from the choir members, not just one. The church itself is a beautiful facility and the greeters and ushers made us feel welcome. We were sitting with our bus tour group so didn't really have much opportunity to interact with the congregation in general. The church has a small bookstore in an upper level room. They were definitely not pushing for money in the offering plate or in the selling of product. We bought two choir CDs that we had planned on getting, and we look forward to listening to them. May God continue to bless the ministries of the BTC.
