WHAT WE BELIEVE

NASHVILLE'S AFFIRMING CHRISTIAN CONGREGATION

 

Mission and Values
What-We-Believe-1

Our mission is to provide Nashville with an affirming, non-denominational, Christ-centered place of worship. We value individuals and families from all walks of life, and from every level of faith.

Sacraments
What-We-Believe-2

Our Faith:  Our faith is based on the principles of the Historic Apostle’s and Nicene Creeds.

We believe:

  • In one triune, God who is all-powerful, all-present and all-knowing.
  • The Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God.
  • Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully human.
  • The Holy Spirit is God making known God’s love and interest to all people.
  • Every person is justified by grace, a gift from God, through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • The Church serves to bring all people to God through Jesus Christ.

WORSHIP SCHEDULE
What-We-Believe-4

Join us on Sunday mornings at 11 AM for a contemporary worship celebration. Come as you are to enjoy uplifting music with a full band and a sermon by Pastor Greg Bullard.

On Sunday evenings at 6 PM is for School for Seekers.  Beginning with a short worship period, this will be more intimate and Spirit-led than morning Worship. Its goal is to connect our hearts, spirits, and souls with God before we engage our minds and bodies in study. This will be followed by 45-60 minutes of teaching and discussion led by Discipleship Pastor Elane O’Rourke.

On alternating Wednesdays at 6:30 PM, join your local Circle for a casual, in-home gathering with your peers. The structured discussion will touch upon daily-life topics and how they relate to Pastor Greg’s most recent sermon.

Our weekly bible study meets at the church on Thursdays at 6:30 PM. Our Discipleship Pastor Elane O’Rourke leads the group in a deeper study of the Bible.
