Traditionally, to have a parish meant to take spiritual responsibility for a designated geographic area. The greater Nashville area has over 2 million people. Over the next few years, there will be another million.
We believe in the importance of commitment to local community and planting roots to form deep and meaningful relationships in our neighborhoods that can help bring about real change as part of a greater movement of renewal. Our society is thirsty for spiritual nutrition, belonging, and genuine reverent worship. We desire to cooperate with God in the transformation of our souls.
As Followers of Christ, we believe that we are nourished by living an integrated life of three streams:
Living a sacramental life underscores our belief in the ongoing importance of the one, true, holy, historic and world-wide Christian faith by incorporating the liturgical rhythms of our worship into our everyday lives.
We believe the Holy Spirit operates today as throughout history, conducting the fullness of God in and through the Church today.
Highlights our adherence to the stream where the importance of the Bible helps instruct humans as how to live.
