  • I enjoyed my visit into this extraordinary historical building. The service was so glorious and humbling. What stood out for me was the bond of unity among the worshippers. The expression of love!! My friend who invited me to the service seemed to be known to almost everyone we came in contact with as we walked about after the service, and that is what a congregation of Christ should at least, look like. Tappings from the rich and famous on the shoulders of their group members irrespective of status. I fell in love with them. The serenity inside this gorgeous historical temple gave me chills, it made me feel like 'been in the womb with Christ'. Awesome place. I will visit again.
  • The rendition of the Alleluia chorus is fantastic with the pipe organ adding class to the music. The church looks like what a church should be in architectural designs unlike the warehouse churches of today. Visit to enjoy those soul lifting hymns of yesteryear.
