East Nashville

About Us

Welcome to Midtown East Nashville! You’ll soon find out that the people of Midtown are a messy group of unfinished people that serve a God that is not messy and loves unfinished people. In fact, that love of transformation through Christ is what we are all about.

To us, the gospel is nether religion which says, “I obey so that I will be accepted,” or irreligion which says, “Obey? The only one I obey is me!” Rather, we have discovered God’s grace to be His love and acceptance of us in spite of who we are. The gospel says, “You are accepted because of the Person and Work of Christ, now you can obey out of that acceptance.” This results in a humble confidence as we approach God because “we are more flawed and lost than we could ever imagine and we are more loved and accepted by God than we could ever dare dream” (Tim Keller).

We believe that God has given us a vision to be one church with many different congregations within this city. The intention is to create more intimate venues for people to hear the gospel, connect in biblical community and serve Jesus together. At the East Nashville location, we enjoy being a church in this neighborhood, for this neighborhood, that loves this neighborhood.

Our desire is to be a safe place for both believers and unbelievers. We invite you to “peek over the fence” and please let us know how we can serve you and come along side you in your spiritual journey.
