See what others are saying about The Sanctuary!

I was in a place of brokenness and felt completely alone, but the very first service I attended I experienced God's healing power and strength. The Sanctuary became my place of refuge and strength. I'm proud to call it "home."

Kim A.   

I was a young person searching for peace, coming from a broken home and struggling with purpose and self-worth. The Sanctuary family embraced me and helped grow and develop me into the woman I am today. The power and presence of God is demonstrated in every service, through anointed praise, worship, and the preaching of the of the TRUE word of God.

My family has truly been blessed to be a part of the Sanctuary. The inclusive family atmosphere has made us feel at home since our first visit. The family-focused ministries reach everyone no matter your age or experience.

Matt D.   

One thing I loved about this church (and still love) is the friendly, loving and kind people that attend here. I was invited by Elijah and Mrs. Williams. The presence of God was so evident and strong. I wanted to learn more about God and how to live for him. That's exactly what I learned and still am learning.
I also love the presence of God I feel here; it's indescribable. When I come here, I feel like I can give all my burdens to Jesus, and when I leave I feel refreshed and ready to tell other people about God.

George M.   

First, I really love the great music. It really has an anointing that I haven't felt anywhere else. The presence of God was so strong! Second, I love the great hospitality. Everyone made me feel at home. I felt welcomed and wanted.

I was broken and lonely looking for something. With no place to go, a friend took me in and led me to the Sanctuary. Here I've found all I was looking for. I love the family atmosphere. The presence of God truly dwells in this place.

Mary D.   

I enjoyed the diversity and the unity. It appeared that everyone was of one mind and spirit - to love and worship God. The preaching was very inspirational and rightly divided, and you could feel the divine presence of God.

This church has been a true sanctuary for me. God is so real and true. Our pastor is a man after God's heart. He brings the word in a way that you know heaven is the only place you want to be.

I love the fact that our church has the freedom to worship, praise, pray and sing during services. I keep coming back to the Sanctuary because the spiritual table is always spread and the feast of the Lord is going on. I want my parents to be saved.

The Sanctuary has provided me with love, true friendship, healing and much more! God knew where my husband & I needed to be at this time of our lives..we followed His guidance one year ago & have been blessed since! I am so thankful for a pastor, pastor's wife & brothers and sisters who truly love you and have no problem expressing their love. I'm humbled to be a part of this Godly church!

Upon an invite from a college classmate, we visited the Sanctuary. After that first visit, we wanted to come back because of the friendliness and the welcome of the people. Sis. Jasmine connected with my then girlfriend - now wife. Bro. Jones Sr. and Bro. Roy impacted me and my boys.

The Sanctuary just felt right. And I love Pastor and Sister Bertram. And everyone here is kind.

Our young people are so beautiful in this world because of this truth.

The messages that are preached are food for the soul. Our pastor is truly called of God. He delivers what God has to tell us. This is now my church. Fall in love with God.

Alliana S.   

When we first visited The Sanctuary, we appreciated the smiling faces and really good music accompanied by the freedom of worship. The anointing on the pastor was obvious. Pastor and Sister Bertram showed us much love, and we have really appreciated the actual fulfillment of the meaning of the name. It really is a sanctuary.

A few things that keep me coming back to this church are the ministry of the Word that is preached without fear and without favor and the love of the saints for each other and for visitors.
This church truly lives up to its name. It is a Sanctuary for those who have been hurt and broken. I remember the first time I came and feeling as though I had found a refuge.

I loved the fact that our church has the freedom to worship, praise, pray and sing during services. I keep coming back to the Sanctuary because the spiritual table is always spread and the feast of the Lord is going on. I want my parents to be saved.

Johnny J.   

I loved the friendliness of the people and the freedom to worship, but the thing that keeps me coming back is the unadulterated word of God!

C. Moore   

When I first got here I was very young so what got me coming back was the friends I made. One thing I love about the Sanctuary is the power of God that moves when you need a touch from God and have nowhere else to turn. It is always a blessing how the saints pray with you as well.

Anthony H.   

I love the music ministry of this church. I also love the great preaching and anointing that comes across the pulpit. This is a family-oriented church body that does not have cliques.

Wesley B.   

My first experience with this church that truly made be want to come back was a Wednesday night message that talked about how God was always with me. It gave me the revelation in my heart about how God loved me so much. How could I stay away from a place that taught me the depths of God's love?
One thing I love about church is how alive the Spirit of God feels. There is never a service where I walk in the house of God and don't feel His presence.

Raven B.   

This is the most wonderful place anywhere around. I wouldn't want to be any other place. God is here.

Charlotte A.   

I love the kindness of the people and the moves of God.

Chris D.   

I love the powerful, anointed worship. This is a place where truth is preached. This is our choice of churches when we are in the Birmingham area.

Twila D.   

After visiting one service we knew this was the city and church that God was calling us to pastor. I love the consistent move of the Spirit, the liberty to worship and the church family atmosphere.

Teri B.   

I loved the presence of God that I felt the first time I ever attended. The music is so awesome too! It if matters to you whether or not you can feel God's presence at church, then this is the place for you!
