Beyonce Knowles, the 31-year-old singer, recently visited the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga and documented the event.

Knowles posted a picture with her nephew Daniel Julez Smith at the famed church on her Tumblr page. Ebenezer Baptist Church is known as the place where civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. served as a co-pastor until he died.

When Knowles began her music career 16 years ago, she made it clear that she was raised as a Methodist Christian. While the singer has not been as vocal about her faith in recent years, her documentary "Life Is But a Dream" gave fans a glimpse of her spiritual side when it premiered earlier this year.

In one scene with her husband and rap mogul Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, Beyoncé thanks Jesus after experiencing a feeling she called "utopia." The singer's husband filmed her in a scene where she is surrounded by rays of sunlight before jumping into a body of water.

"I am experiencing utopia. Life could not be more perfect. Everything that we worked for is right here … thanks be to Jesus," the singer tells Jay-Z in the HBO documentary. "Look what God created!"

In another scene, the entertainer becomes emotional when she speaks about her grandmother's prayers having a direct impact on the blessings in her life.

"I don't know why I'm so fortunate and so blessed," she said in "Life is But a Dream." "I know my mom always told me that my grandmother was in the church lighting candles for her and I am a result of my grandmother's prayers and my mother prays for me all the time and I pray for my mother all the time."

The singer went on to describe the reality of God.

"God is real and God lives inside of me and inside of all of us and it doesn't matter where I am, I know that and I feel it," Beyoncé said in between takes, showcasing her 1-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. "Like right now I'm hot – it's a tingling. It's love. I feel it when I look at my child, I feel it when I look at my husband. It's God."
