Police received a report over a suspicious package on Monday afternoon and seized it for further examination.
The PSNI released the information to the media on Tuesday afternoon.
Pastor James McConnell, who preaches at the Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle, has been at the centre of a controversy over remarks he made about the Islam faith.
During a recent sermon he likened "cells" of Muslims in Britain to the IRA and branded Islam a "heathen" doctrine, saying it was "satanic" and "spawned in hell".
